Vincent prepares a spectacular seafood pasta. We've adapted his recipe to be easier for the home cook. You can ask your fish market to steam the lobster; save shells for Lobster Sauce, if desired. Prep: 25 minutes; Cook: 2 hours, 20 minutes.

How to Make It

Step 1

Cook lobster in boiling salted water 15 minutes. Remove from water; cool slightly. Remove meat from claws. Remove meat from tail, and slice into medallions; chill until ready to use.

Step 2

Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Sprinkle scallops and shrimp with salt and pepper; sauté 2 minutes on each side. Add Poached Baby Octopus and lobster; cook 1 minute or until heated through, adding more oil if necessary.

Step 3

Combine seafood mixture and pasta, and divide among 4 plates. Spoon Lobster Sauce on and around pasta. Garnish, if desired.

a bit of work and alot of components, but worth it. I am lucky to have a large kitchen at home with all professional equipment. We made this pasta on a sunday for a group of friends and it was amazing
