Recipe: Skewers of MaineLobster with Pesto Dipping Sauce
4 cooked Maine lobster tails, about 5to 6-ounces each
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup low-fat sour cream
1/4 cup pesto (or more to taste)
Fresh basil leaves for garnishing the serving tray
60 (6-inch) bamboo skewers
Makes about 60 skewers.
Ingredient Note: Pesto is an uncooked saucemade with fresh basil, garlic, Parmesan or pecorino cheese, oliveoil and often nuts, like walnuts or pine nuts. In traditionalItalian homes, this sauce was made fresh by crushing the ingredientswith a mortar and pestle. Today, home cooks can use a food processoror blender. I make batches of pesto every summer and freeze themin small jars. Pesto is also available in the international sectionof larger supermarkets, specialty food stores, and often at yourlocal farmers’ market.
