Lobster and Shrimp Baguette Caps

Usually, make baguettes with blue crab meat, but for whatever reason, my crab dealer doesn’t have it in stock. Keep reading
Suspect it’s a seasonal thing but looking around their stash I noticed “lobster head” meat. It was pretty cheap at about 6 bucks + for approximately 2 cups. The lobster meat wasn’t dirty like full of fat, it looked pretty clean.

Lobster Stuffing Parts

  • 2 cups lobster (crab works too, head meat chopped up)
  • 1 cup parmigiano cheese (='s 1/2 bag)
  • 2 oz pimento (it’s by the olives maybe 2 ounces)
  • 1 cup green onions ( sliced)
  • 2 oz jalapeno (='s 1 jalap de-seeded and diced.)
  • 12 tsp garlic (='s 1 bulb of roasted )
  • ½ tbs Cottonmouth
  • 1/4 tsp salt (to taste)

Baguette Parts

  • 12 oz baguettes
  • 1 lb shrimp (this recipe made 15, enough to put one per baguette)
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tbs butter
  • 1 tbs Cottonmouth
  • 1/4 salt (to taste)
  • 1 tbs hot sauce (Lousianna style)


Lobster Prep

  • Probably the easiest part of the recipe but takes a bit. 1st cut top off garlic bulb, sprinkle salt, a little olive oil, wrap in foil and bake at 350 for 45 minutes (until soft).
  • Once you got garlic baked and cooled squish it into a large bowl.
  • With the lobster chop I cut/diced into about ¼ inch pieces.
  • Anyway mix all the “lobster stuffing parts” in a bowl.
  • Set in fridge for a second.

Shrimp Prep

  • Clean your shrimp if they need be. You can get them in all fashions, headed, de-headed, peeled… I like mine bought de-veined and if it wasn’t a choice I would de-vein myself. Stressing de-veined cause sometimes that vein contains sand and you’ll sure know it when you bite into it.
  • In a medium high heat pan drop in 1 tbsp of butter.
  • Sprinkle in salt and Cottonmouth to your taste.
  • We aren’t cooking these fully. With the higher heat we are trying to get a sear on both sides of shrimp. So push’em around a bit and take off heat.
  • It will look cooked but when opened still a little translucent. This is cool because they are getting more heat soon.

Lobster Shrimp Cap Erection

  • Oven at 350, take a piece of parchment paper and lay on cookie sheet.
  • I put a IG sized amount of lobster stuffing on baguette but you can control that. About an ounce is good.
  • Semi press a shrimp on top of that.
  • Dab about ½ tsp mayonnaise on top of that.
  • Place on cookie sheet… 1 done about 14 to go!
  • OK most my recipes are at 350 when baking. This is because it’s my safe temp to where I don’t burn things (parts) that will cook faster than others. Just say’n, most frozen food recommend temps around 400.
  • Put cookie sheet full of love in oven and bake (350) for 30 minutes.
  • Check at 30 minutes. A good way to tell if done is parmigiano cheese is melted, mayonnaise starting to brown, and/or the translucent part of butterflied part of shrimp is whiter.
  • Once cooked, plate and drip a couple drops of your favorite hot sauce over top. You don’t have to put hot sauce but it does add a nice touch to the mayonnaise.
  • Have fun with them! A small piece of homegrown tomato would be nice too (afterthoughts).
