Cooking For Special Occasions | Gordon Ramsay

For my ultimate special occasion lunch I’ve got some stunning and I mean Stunning lobsters And I’ll be cooking them very simply With chili and garlic butter serving Them with Bloody Mary linguine I’m going to start with a pasta sauce I love the Indulgence in this dish If I was doing this for the kids I’d Scratch the vodka and just do like a Virgin Mary but a bit of a grown-ups Fish now pan nice and hot special olive Oil Onions in seasoning Touch of salt and Pepper Garlic be nice and generous with your Garlic it’s not just your average tomato Sauce it’s a royal stunning tomato sauce And you’re in for a big treat Season the onions and garlic the Tabasco That’ll give that really nice lift Little pinch of celery salt Spice that up with Worcester sauce it Instantly colors the tomatoes goes Brilliantly well with the celery salt Tabasco and that nice caramelized garlic A little light sprinkling of sugar all The Worcester sauce has reduced down We’ve got this nice sweet spicy sticky Garlicky onion base glaze with a couple Of spoons of vodka in Lovely Chopped tomatoes in A little touch of water

Look at the color of that sauce Check the seasoning Bring that up to the ball and cook it Out six to eight minutes reduce it down Slowly turn down the Gas let that simmer With my sauce simmering I can move on to A delicious breadcrumb topping to dress My linguine Fly off my bed cars get them nice and Crispy but don’t put too much oil in There otherwise the bread will just Absorb it they become greasy Beautifully season them And they go really nice and golden brown 30 seconds before they come out flat Leaf parsley roll that through your Bread crumbs and that is going to finish The linguine on top You can hear how crisper they are Before I cook the linguine I’m going to Make the chili butter that will flavor My Lobster Get your chili and slice it I want to Take advantage of all those seeds Trillion touch your soul A nice clove of garlic And here’s some parsley Start breaking that down but I’m looking For a lovely garlic chili paste exactly Like that now don’t overdo it with the Butter Her Butters are a great way to flavor

Fish and meat they can be used as a Stuffing in dishes like chicken kiev or Added towards the end of a Dish as a Delicious glaze Lobsters They’re already cooked so Firmly placed Lobster flat on your board There’s a little crisscross here lying There and a line going across put the Point of the knife in and just push Through The head turn the lobster around Cut through the lobster Snap the legs off Snap the claws off just get the back of Your knife Crack them Spread that beautiful butter on go into The heads as well And then the claws take off bits of the Shell And get a little bits of butter in there This can be done way in advance for me The longer that chili butter sits on top Of that Lobster the better the flavor Especially when they hit the grill While my Lobster firms up in the fridge I can finish cooking my linguine water Brought up to the boil Seasoned nicely and a little touch of Olive oil now linguine first that’s Going to take the longest eight to ten Minutes in
