Slipper Lobster with Cheesy Mushroom Sauce. Today I would like to share a simple recipe of a lobster, well no, it is not the real lobster, and I used Slipper Lobster. Slipper lobster as the name suggest but it is not a lobster, it is a poor man’s lobster ironically it is being disguised as lobsters in most seafood restaurant. Although they look similar to a real lobster when the head is removed they lack the texture and taste of the real lobsters. This is not the first time I cooked slipper lobster, click the link on the list below to check out my other slipper lobster Pinoy dish in the archives.
To make our dish for today, Slipper Lobster with Cheesy Mushroom Sauce is fairly easy. We use the pre-cooked Slipper Lobster bought in the Seafood Section of most supermarket. Most likely the Slipper Lobster you can find may have been pre-cooked anyway. For the mushroom sauce I used the Campbell’s Cream of Mushroom Condense sauce. Cooking is fairly easy no complicated procedure.
Her is the recipe on my Slipper Lobster with Cheesy Mushroom Sauce. Enjoy.
