Recipe so easy, you can’t slip up
Slipper lobsters are great ingredients to work with if you want an indulgent seafood meal at home but don’t fancy dealing with the icky process of dispatching live seafood.
There are many ways to cook slipper lobsters, and a straightforward approach is to use fermented black beans as a base ingredient for the gravy.
It is a bonus if you have chicken stock, but don’t sweat it if you don’t.
The slipper lobsters impart a marvellous sweetness to the gravy, and the fermented black beans add aromatic savouriness.
Add more water and adjust with more seasoning if you want more gravy.
The best part about dining in the comfort of your own home?
You won’t be getting judgey looks if you choose to add rice to the serving dish to mop up any remaining gravy once you are done with the slipper lobsters.
