Lobster tails are a good-value way to buy lobster, though if you have access to whole lobster add the claw meat to the recipe as well.


  • 100g linguine or dried angel hair pasta
  • 2 lobster tails, cooked
  • 1 lemon, zested and juiced
  • 3 tbsp mascarpone
  • a handful of leaves basil


  • STEP 1

    Remove the lobster meat from the tails by snipping down each side of the underneath and pulling the shell back. Slice it into discs and chop any scruffy bits.

  • STEP 2

    Cook the pasta. Put the mascarpone into a bowl with the lemon zest, 1/2 the lemon juice and 3 tbsp of cooking water and the scruffy bits of lobster and season well. Add the pasta and toss everything together. Divide between two bowls. Dress the lobster slices with some lemon juice and lay them on top of the pasta, scatter on some basil.
