  • Cauliflower that tastes like lobster!

    We're having chicken scampi for dinner tonight and we decided, for the first time, to toss in a head of cauliflower to get all of dinner cooked at one time.

    I swear, the scampied cauliflower tastes remarkably like lobster! I'm not saying I'd confuse the two, but it's very close. My hubby's not nearly as impressed (not as much of a lobster fan), but he says he can taste it too.

    All we did was bake chicken and cauliflower in a butter garlic sauce with chives, for just under an hour.

    EDIT: Just talked to my son and turns out, he thought it was pretty lobster-like too. Interesting.

    You've won me over. Will try this sometime this week.

      Ok, so what comprised the butter garlic sauce? Butter and fresh garlic? Anything else? (sounds delicious!!!)

        When you wrote "scampi chicken" I thought the fishy flavour from the scampi might explain it, but as there doesn't actually appear to be any scampi in the recipe....

            This gives me the idea to add the cauliflower to some Shrimp scampi and enhance the effect.

              The butter garlic sauce was just butter and fresh garlic with chives and a splash of white wine.

                Nope, just chicken and cauliflower done in the style of shrimp scampi

                  A lobster in a tank of circulating sea water next to the ocean and an inland supermarket lobster are two totally different things. The latter is so mild in flavor that al dente cauliflower and butter could mimic the mouthfeel and flavor enough to trick the mouth.

                    Okay?
