The Atlantis Casino in Reno, Nevada has a restaurant located on the Sky Bridge that has for years been serving the most incredible Lobster Pan Roast. Its made fresh to order and is always a real treat. Its one of my Wife's favorite meals. Its spicy warm and highlights the seafood you choose to use.
Having mover to the Pacific Northwest monthly trips to enjoy a meal there has become impossible. But access to great fresh seafood that is sometimes caught in the morning (when the fish are biting) and cooked that night makes this dish even better.
So starting with some tips and hints given to me by the generous Chef's at the Atlantis Seafood Bar. I set out to recreate my version of this great dish.
It called Lobster Pan Roast at the restaurant but it is great with any seafood. I have made it with Cod, Crab, Flounder, Salmon, Smoked Salmon or a combination of your choice. It easy to make and adjust spices to suit your taste.
It is a great dish year round.
Step 1: Ingredients
1. White Wine. I use a nice Oakey Columbia Crest Chardonnay 1 Cup
2. Clam Juice Available in most Supermarkets 1 Cup
3. Heavy Cream 30 or 36% 1 Cup
4. Cocktail Sauce Use a good quality Cocktail Sauce of your choice 1/2 Cup
5 Lemon 1/2 lemon juiced into the pot 1/2 Juiced
6. Butter Unsalted Butter 1/2 Cup
7. Celery Salt 1 tsp.
7. Garlic As much as you like I use about 2 Tbs. fresh 2 Tbs.
8.Tobasco Tabasco reg or Smokey 3/4 to 1 tsp
9. Worcestershire Thick or thin your choice 1 tsp
10 Protein Lobster, Crab, Cod, Flounder, Salmon fresh 1 Lb. or More
Step 2: Put It All Together
Now the easy part
In a large Pot combine the Wine, Cam sauce, Lemon, Butter, Fresh Garlic, Celery Salt, Tabasco, and Worcestershire.
REVISION to this reciepe as follows:
Bring Everything to a Boil, Add the Heavy cream and Cocktail Sauce. Then Add the Seafood (cut into small pieces and take off the Heat and cover all to sit for about 5 minutes and serve. The Hot Soup is hot enough to perfectly cook the Seafood and not over cook it.
Update to this recipe. I hade the opportunity to make this on air during a local radio show Broadcast Seattle Kitchen. Everyone loved It but they had a great suggestion. Because it was on radio and being done live timing was a difficult(for me) So the fish was slightly over cooked and the Chefs had a suggestion that I tried the next time I cooked it and it worked great.
Thanks to Tom, Terry and Katy whose suggestion made this an even better dish. And check out Seattle Kitchen pod casts for more great cooking tips.
