Lobster Tail Fra Diavolo with Zucchini Noodles

It is “turn in the manuscript” day! By the end of today, I will have e-mailed my editor the first copy of the entire Inspiralized cookbook, from soup to nuts.

I’m so insanely proud of this book, and I know that Clarkson Potter will do so much to make it even better. I’m so excited to see the first round of edits and to of course, have the photography shoot (in mid August!)

To celebrate, I’ve made a fancy schmancy recipe, perfect for summertime celebrations (like this one!)

Lobster Tail Fra Diavolo with Zucchini Noodles

Most importantly, I feel like I’ve been neglecting the blog – posting later in the mornings, missing posts (oops, yesterday!) and not spending enough time responding to all your kind comments on Instagram and Facebook. Now, I’ll hopefully have more time for that.

Lobster makes everything more festive. Don’t be daunted by lobsters at the grocery store – just ask the butcher to chop it up for you. Many grocery stores actually separate lobster tails and claws from the bodies and sell them individually (of course, they’ll be marked up.) That’s the price of convenience!

Normally I don’t specify what type of canned tomatoes I use in my recipes, but with this delicate lobster meat, I wanted only the best: San Marzano.

This recipe is mildly spicy, so if you can handle the heat, add another 1/4 teaspoon of red pepper flakes or just a small pinch to amp up the kick. Other than that, I have not much more else to say about this recipe other than you have to make it at some point this summer – sit down, enjoy the meal with a loved one. It’ll remind you why food brings so many cultures together.

Okay, back to finishing this manuscript. It’s Monday and I’m sooooo close. Save me a glass of vino!

Celebrate with me and make this lobster fra diavolo. It’s important to treat yourself every now and remind yourself that you’re an amazing person, because you are!

What are you favorite ways to prepare lobster?

I love lobster! I've always just ordered it at the restaurant, never been brave enough to cook it myself for the fear of messing it up haha!
My favorite is lazy man's lobster...lobster meat with crumb topping. I wouldn't want to kill the lobster by sticking it in the boiling water. You have to hold them down and they wiggle. I am sure they feel it.

I'm going to make this for dinner tonight, but my market had no lobster (perhaps because it's no longer summer?). I was going to try it with shrimp. Do you think it'll still be nice with shrimp instead of lobster?

remember a couple weeks ago when I sat in front of this same mirror, tucked my long hair into a sweater and debated whether to chop it all off or not? 💇🏻‍♀️ I think we all know what that decision was 🤪⁣

this is still by far the coziest sweater I own and they sell it in a yellow that's perfect for spring and I'm debating whether or not to get it 😬 I've been in a funk all week and can't seem to shake it. retail therapy moment?!⁣

jokes aside, I need a vacation. more specifically, I need 🍹 on a 🏝... anyone else?  ⁣

actually, I put the @oculus goggles on the other night to go to a virtual beach, and I almost started crying... the sounds of the seagulls, the little turtle crawling on the sand, the bright sun, the sounds of the waves crashing, the white stand, the wind and the palm trees.... I had no idea how therapeutic the ocean and the beach are for me!⁣

I've thought a lot about where our first "trip" will be once it's safe to travel again, and I've decided on a beach resort. will you do something adventurous or something lazy and beachy? http://liketk.it/39bMq #liketkit @liketoknow.it
