Justin Timberlake Loves Lobster Pecorino Fettuccine!
That’s right! Justin Timberlake has stated he’s bringing lobster back and his favorite dish is Lobster Pecorino Fettuccine. This is a suit and tie type of meal, but I wouldn’t be surprised if Justin has whipped this up himself a few times while quarantined in Montana. Let me take you through the steps to recreate this great dish so the next time you buy lobster, or perhaps the next time you entertain JT, you can cook it up for your dinner party.

Let’s Start Cooking that Lobster Fettuccine
Cooking the Lobster & Pasta
- We’re going to boil the lobster tails for this recipe. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil and add the lobster tails in. Boil for 8-10 minutes until the lobster tails’ shells turns red and the meat turns from opaque to white.
- Remove the lobster tails from the salted water and set aside to cool. Crank up the stove and get the remaining water back to a boil. We’re going to use the broth from the lobster to cook up the pasta.
- Reduce the heat to low once the water is boiling and add the fettuccine. Cook al dente.
Let’s Get Saucy
- Once the lobster has cooled, it’s time to carefully remove the meat from the tails without cutting yourself. Place them in a bowl along with the pre-cooked lobster claws and knuckles. Set the shells from the tails aside, we will use them later.
- Heat up the oil and butter over high heat, and add in the shallots, garlic, and red pepper. Stir continuously and once the air has a nice fragrance, add the white wine vinegar. Stir often.
- Add the shells of the lobster tails to the saucepan to add in some extra flavor to the sauce..
- Add the tomato paste, tomatoes, bay leaves, sugar, and heavy cream. Bring it to a boil and continue stirring until everything is combined.
- Take a cup of the water from the pasta and stir into the sauce. This will cause the sauce to get smoother and thicken.
- Reduce heat and simmer, stirring occasionally for 10-15 minutes.
- Pour the sauce into a colander to strain into a bowl, removing the shells from the sauce as well as the skin from tomatoes and bay leaves. Press firmly on the solids to strain any juice into the sauce.
- Drain all the water from the fettuccine and set aside.
We’re Almost There!
- Transfer the sauce to the pot (now empty) that was used to cook the pasta and place on a medium-low heat.
- Stir ¾ of the Pecorino cheese into the sauce, stirring occasionally.
- Cut up the lobster meat into small pieces, keeping some of the lobster claws whole for presentation. Add the meat to the sauce.
- Raise the heat to a medium high and begin to add the pasta directly into the sauce, tossing the pasta until it has a full coat of sauce. Add most of the fresh herbs, saving some for presentation, and toss until thoroughly mixed.
- Portion out each serving onto plates. Sprinkle the remaining cheese, parsley, thyme, and tarragon on each plate of pasta.
