  • 1 tbsp. Olive oil
  • 1 tbsp. Lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp. Chicken bone broth

  • 1 tsp. Garlic powder

  • ½ c. Crushed pork rind crumbs
  • 2 tbsp. Melted unsalted butter

Instructions

  • Preheat your oven to 450 degrees.
  • Pour 1 ¼ cup of heavy whipping cream into a small saucepan, and place 1 lb of uncooked lobster meat in as well.
  • Cook the lobster meat in the cream over medium heat until it comes to a low boil. Do not overcook the lobster meat, or it will become chewy in texture.
  • Strain and reserve the milk from the lobster meat, and set both aside separately.
  • Heat up 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat.
  • Cook the chopped onion in the skillet for a few minutes until it begins to become browned and tender.
  • Pour in 1 tablespoon of lemon juice and 2 tablespoon of chicken bone broth. Scrape the bottom of the pan to deglaze it, and simmer for an additional 30 seconds.
  • Add in the cream that was reserved from earlier.
  • Toss in the chopped fresh basil.
  • 1Mix in salt and pepper to taste as well as 1 teaspoon of garlic powder.
  • 1Add in the cooked lobster meat, reduce heat to medium, and simmer to cook down the cream mixture for an additional 3-5 minutes.
  • 1Place ½ cup of very finely crushed pork rind crumbs to a small mixing bowl.
  • 1Add ½ cup of shredded gruyere cheese, and 2 tablespoon of melted unsalted butter. Mix the ingredients together, these will be the topping for your lobster bake.
  • 1Pour the lobster mixture from the skillet into a small baking dish.
  • 1Layer the pork rind and cheese topping mixture on top, and bake for 15 minutes until the top is browned and bubbly.
  • 1Remove the lobster bake from the oven, allow to sit for 5 minutes, and serve over cauliflower rice, freshly steamed broccoli, or your choice of keto-friendly vegetables.
