Spicy Lobster Pasta
12 ounces spaghetti
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 large shallot, finely chopped
1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
1 pound cherry and/or Sun Gold tomatoes, halved
1 pound picked cooked lobster meat or cooked large shrimp
Freshly ground black pepper
1 teaspoon finely grated lemon zest
A L'OLIVIER Lobster Oil to taste
Lemon wedges (for serving)
Cook spaghetti in a large pot of boiling salted water, stirring occasionally, until al dente. Drain, reserving 1 cup pasta cooking liquid (the secret to silky sauce).
Meanwhile, heat oil and butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook shallot and red pepper flakes, stirring often, until shallot is softened, about 2 minutes. Add tomatoes and cook, stirring often, until tomatoes are soft and juicy, 5–8 minutes.
Add lobster meat to skillet and toss to coat. Add pasta and 1/2 cup reserved pasta cooking liquid; season with salt and pepper.
Cook, tossing constantly and adding more reserved pasta cooking liquid as needed, until sauce thickens and coats pasta, about 2 minutes.
Drizzle with A L'OLIVIER Lobster Oil.
Serve pasta topped with lemon zest, with lemon wedges alongside for squeezing over.
