yeah, you don't want to overpower the lobster with your side dish..

 

a traditional side dish for lobster in california are hot flour tortillas and dipping sauce.

 

but also you might try a nice side salad consisting of lettuce, thinly sliced tomatoes, mushrooms, sprouts, sprigs and a drizzle of balsamic dressing..

 

and rice is always great..

blanched asparagus with balsamic viniagrette reduction, super quick and easy and compliments seafood perfectly. and garlic skin-on mashed taters is always a go to guy.

i dont think a salad would really go to well with lobster, if its just like straight up lobster boiled and on a plate with clarified butter. if it is then def go with teh salt potatoes and some asparagus both with a little bit of that buttery goodness on em. make sure you put some dill int he potatoes too, dill + seafood = always good combo

So maybe chop up some dill really fine and do it over the lobster?

 

I don't have a pot large enough to boil the lobster so i am just going to buy some frozen tails and thaw'em out.
