Zucchini Noodles with Lobster

Still loving my vegetable spiraler! Especially now that the weather has warmed up and cool, light dishes are more appetizing than warm heavy ones.

If you've missed my previous posts about zucchini noodles here's a quick primer. If you don't have a spiraler you can also use a Julienne peeler and it doesn't take too much longer.

Now for the really fun part....the lobster! Depending on how many you're serving you may want to use imitation lobster as the real thing can be pricey (around $13 for one tail at my grocery store!) Imitation lobster is mostly Alaskan Pollack which is very sustainable so not to worry:) And as the garlic sauce is very flavorful you could probably substitute just about any white fish.


4 zucchini, trimmed
1/4 tsp sea salt
1 lemon, zested and juiced
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 cup lightly packed coarsely chopped fresh dill
1/2 cup lightly packed coarsely chopped parsley
3 tbsp olive oil
Fresh found black pepper, to taste
2 cups multicolored baby tomatoes, halved
2 cups coarsely copped cooked and cooled lobster meat (about 10 oz)

Directions: (serves 4)
Working 1 piece at a time, secure zucchini into a spiraler and crank long strands that resemble spaghetti noodles. In a bowl toss noodles with 1/4 tsp salt and transfer to a colander for about 15 to 20 mins to drain excess water.
Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine lemon zest, garlic, dill and parsley. Add oil and lemon juice and mix until combined.
Arrange noodles on a large tray lined with a clean, dry towel. Cover with a second towel and gently pat to absorb any excess water. Add noodles to bowl with herb mixture and toss gently to combine. Season with pepper and additional salt. Transfer to a serving bowl and top with tomatoes and lobster.


  1. What spiraled do you use? I think I went too cheap. Mine does a lot of mushing.
