Combining a beautifully delicate Maine lobster with a potentially heavy dish like fettuccine Alfredo can be a recipe (#sorrynotsorry) for disaster. A successful pairing depends on a couple of things: Vinalhaven’s smoked lobster can stand up to any heavy sauce, even an Alfredo, as well as lightening the lightening the Alfredo sauce with my favorite secret ingredient, lemon zest. The classic combination of lobster and lemon makes this pasta dish an easy fix for all of the warm-weather months.
