Chef Gordon Ramsay’s lobster capellini recipe is a delight to have with the delicious lobster pasta sauce. Not many people can make an excellent lobster sauce like this. The creamy yet chunky tomato sauce with the lobster is a perfect partner to the thin strands of Capellini pasta.

I came across this recipe a few years ago. What I loved was that he used Capellini pasta, which, to be honest, doesn’t get its fair share of the credit. The sauce, made from onions, tomatoes, garlic and spices, does wonder when combined with ultra-thin Capellini. The lobster is also the perfect meat for the recipe.

To make Gordon Ramsay’s lobster capellini, cook the capellini al dente. In a pan, add butter, tomatoes, onions, garlic and chili and cook. Add pepper and white wine, cook until wine dries. Add cream and small pieces of lobster. Pour the sauce over the capellini on a plate. Top with parmesan, basil and drizzle olive oil.

Gordon Ramsay Lobster Capellini recipe
  1. Place the tomatoes, chili, onion, garlic, and butter in a heavy-based pan and cook over moderate heat until soft but not colored.

  5. Take the lobster meat and cut it into small pieces.
  6. Drain the Capellini in a colander and transfer to a warm serving plate.
  7. Add the cream to the tomato sauce and bring to the boil. Add the lobster and toss to warm through. Do not overcook at this stage.
  8. Pour over the Capellini, scatter over the basil and parmesan, drizzle with the oil and serve immediately with a crisp green salad.
  9. Serve with a simple green salad with lardoon and soft boiled eggs.
