How to Make Lobster Cantonese

Step-by-Step

  1. Cut each lobster tail in half. Wash thoroughly. Drain. Cut tails into pieces 1 1/2 inches in length, leaving shells on.

    Sprinkle 1/2 teaspoon of salt and the flour on lobster.

    Mix garlic with black bean mixture in a bowl. Stir well.

    Heat oil for deep-frying to smoking hot. Put in lobster pieces. Deep-fry until shells are red. Drain. Remove.

    Reheat 1 tablespoon of oil in wok. Stir-fry black bean mixture 30 seconds. Remove.

    Reheat 2 tablespoons of oil in wok. Stir-fry ginger and scallion until there is an aroma, about 30 seconds. Add pork. Stir-fry on high heat until color changes. Add 1 tablespoon of sherry, soy sauce, black bean mixture, and stock. Bring to boil.

    Add lobster to meat mixture. Add 1 tablespoon sherry. Cover. Cook 3 minutes.

    Remove lid. Bring to boil. Thicken gravy with dissolved cornstarch. Season with 1/2 teaspoon salt. Add scallions. Slowly pour in beaten egg. Stir-fry about 10 seconds. Remove.
  2. NOTE: I CHEAT. I take the shells off before cooking.
