In this video, you'll see how to make lobster thermidor. This isn't the ultra decadent lobster thermidor from the 1980s! With Chef John, the lobster takes center stage. In place of the rich, thick, overpowering cheesy sauce, he goes with a lighter sauce. "Lobster is sort of sweet, and rich tasting to begin with," says Chef John, "so covering it in a super heavy sauce never made much sense, which is why I like this approach so much more." So it's just mildly decadent. This impressive recipe is a smart choice for entertaining because you can do all the prep in advance and just pop the lobsters in the oven when the guests arrive! Watch the video, then get the recipe for Chef John's Lobster Thermidor.
