Cuba Spanish Lobster



Serves: 6-8
Country: Cuba


1/2 cup pure Spanish olive oil
1 large onion, finely chopped
4 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1/4 pound finely chopped Serrano ham ( or substitute Westphalian or Black Forest ham or prosciutto)
2 cups drained and finely chopped canned whole tomatoes or prepared tomato sauce
1/2 cup finely chopped drained pimientos
1/2 cup dry white wine
1/2 cup fish stock or clam juice
6 to 8 raw lobster tails (or frozen lobster tails, defrosted), each cut into 3 to 4 slices widthwise or cut in half lengthwise (or substitute 2 pounds large shrimp, peeled and deveined, tails left on)
1/4 cup cognac
1/4 cup finely chopped fresh parsley
 salt to taste


In a large saucepan, heat the oil over low heat until fragrant, then cook the onion and garlic, stirring, until tender, 5 minutes. Add the ham and cook, stirring, 2 minutes. Add the tomatoes, pimientos, wine, and stock, raise the heat to medium-high, and bring to a boil. Immediately reduce the heat to low and simmer, partially covered, until the mixture has thickened, about 10 minutes. Add the lobster pieces and continue cooking until the lobster is cooked, and the shells turn red, 5 to 6 minutes.

Remove the lobster from the sauce and transfer it to a heated platter. Aadd the cognac, parsley, and salt to the sauce, bring the mixture to a boil over medium-high heat, pour over the lobster, and serve immediately
