Can't you just see Jedward jumping out of the cake??
With 7 wins under their belt Ireland holds the record for most wins in Eurovision, so it is only fitting that their entry in Chow Down to Eurovision 2013 has a touch of luxury. I had thought of roasting a turkey but felt it wasn't right to cook an Irish contestant.
In 2008 they thought they would enter a craic, that doesn't sound right?
Lobster Dublin Lawyer
- 1 lobster tail
- 50g unsalted butter
- 100ml whiskey
- 1/2 cup cream
- squeeze of lemon
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Cut down the centre of the underside of the lobster tail to remove the meat but leave the shell intact
- Tidy up the edges of the shell for presentation and boil in a saucepan for 5 mins and then drain. If not using the shell for presentation this step can be omitted.
- Cut the lobster into bite sized pieces
- In a large frypan on high heat add the butter.
- Add the lobster and the whiskey
- Use a long match or gas lighter to ignite the whiskey, be careful as it is a pretty big flambé.
- Once the flame have died off add the cream and mix through
- Add the squeeze of lemon and season to taste
- The lobster should be cooked by the time the flame has gone, it is very easy to over cook it
- To serve place meat back into the shell and pour over the sauce
- This served AB and I as an entrée but if you have found a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow it would be a lovely main course with a decadent buttery mash.
This year Ireland isn't sending Jedward but Ryan Dolan will find out if Only Love Survives, and possibly makes it to the finals again.
