Our Christmas Dinner : Baked Lobster tails in Lemon Butter, Mussels in Yellow curry sauce, Roasted Potatoes, Sauteed Asparagus and cheese platter

Baked Lobster tails in lemon butter : I washed and towel dried the loster tails. Then made a long slit till the end of the tail and loosened the flesh from shell. Poured the Lemon butter and baked in 475F preheated oven for 30 min.

Lemon Butter : Stir together 3 tbsp melted butter , 2 teaspoons and grated lemon rind until blended. Stir in 1tsp parsley.

Roasted Potatoes : Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Cut 2 large potatoes in half or quarters and place in a bowl with the 2 tbsp olive oil, 1/2tsp salt, 1/2 tsp pepper, and 1tbsp garlic; toss until the potatoes are well coated. Transfer the potatoes to a sheet pan and spread out into 1 layer. Roast in the oven for 45 minutes to 1 hour or until browned and crisp. Flip twice with a spatula during cooking in order to ensure even browning.Remove the potatoes from the oven, toss with parsley, season to taste, and serve hot.

Sauteed Asparagus :  Cut and discard 2 inch bias from bottom of the Asparagus. Heat 1tbsp olive oil in a large skillet and add 1chopped garlic followed by 12 asparagus. Stir fry for 3-4 min or until done. Sprinkle salt and pepper.
