Lobster is the way to my heart. It’s the truth. Lump crab meat too, but there’s something about big chunks of lobster smothered in butter that makes me incredibly happy. I know most of you probably feel the same. Let’s all take a moment, close our eyes, and appreciate lobster’s yumminess…

Spaghetti Squash with Garlic Herbed Butter + Lobster

I don’t know the exact moment I first tried lobster, but I’m always amazed every single time I eat it that plunging it in butter is the widely accepted way to eat it. It’s the dream, people. 

Well, one day I got some beautiful lumps of lobster in the mail from Cousin’s Maine Lobster. I’m telling you guys, I felt like the luckiest girl ever!! I got it from their online store and I can’t believe how easy it was to get some fresh lobster delivered right to my door.

I knew I had to do something special with it, so I made a really decadent and delicious meal that’s also super fresh and light and flavorful and EASY. The lobster chunks are the shining star and I couldn’t help but savor each one as I ate it. It’s such a treat!

So let’s make some Spaghetti Squash with Garlic Herbed Butter Sauce and the most amazing chunks of Lobster 🙂

First, cut the ends off the spaghetti squash and then cut it in half lengthwise. Scoop out the seeds and discard (or save for toasting?!). Then, brush the inside of the squash with coconut oil or your favorite oil. 

Line a baking pan and place the flat side of the spaghetti squash face down on the pan. Roast it for 30 minutes, then flip it so the flat side is up and roast for another 10 minutes. Roasting times may vary depending on the size of the squash.

Once the spaghetti squash is done cooking, place the butter into a skillet over medium heat. Wait for it to melt then add the garlic, herbs, and sea salt. Once the butter sauce becomes fragrant, fork the spaghetti squash out of the shell and add it to the skillet. Toss to coat the spaghetti squash.

Finally, add lobster and toss everything to heat through, about 1 – 2 minutes. Then, remove immediately from heat so you don’t overcook the lobster. Place in the individual dishes and sprinkle with additional chopped herbs!
