        Heat up this Fall with this Spicy Lobster Curry Noodle Soup

        Autumn is officially here in Canada. Temperatures are dropping, the air is feeling crisp, and the leaves are changing to some beautiful colours. We’re enjoying some final weekends up in cottage country and have cozying up with some good food, wine and friends. We’ve been LOVING this Lobster Curry Noodle Soup dish from @rhubarbandcod.

        This soup features flavourful and hearty pieces of lobster served over a tangle of noodles swimming in a lobster based coconut red curry soup. Toronto based food photographer and stylist, Susan from @rhubarbandcod developed this video of how to make this delicious soup AND was generous enough to lend us her recipe. Scroll down to learn how to make this mighty soup! 🙌

        Lobster Curry Noodle Soup Recipe

        • Prep Time: 35 mins
        • Cook Time: 1 hr 30 mins
        • Course: Main Course
        • Servings: 4

        Ingredients

        • 2 Half-Split Lobsters
        • 2 tbsp olive oil
        • 2 tbsp unsalted butter
        • 4 shallots halved and sliced
        • 3 carrots peeled and chopped
        • 3 stalks celery leaves removed and reserved, chopped
        • 4 cloves garlic peeled
        • 1 (1½-inch) knob ginger sliced into medallions
        • 1 cup frozen shrimp shells optional
        • 3 tbsp red curry paste
        • 1 tbsp shrimp paste
        • ½ cup dry vermouth
        • 4 cups low sodium vegetable or chicken stock
        • 2 bay leaves
        • 1 (400ml, 13.5 fl oz) can coconut milk
        • 1 (354ml, 12 fl oz) can evaporated milk
        • 400g (14oz) fresh wheat noodles
        • 1 lime juiced
        • beansprouts to serve
        • fresh cilantro to serve
        • radish microgreens to serve
        • lime wedges to serve

        Method:

        All of Chef’s Vault sustainably sourced seafood is delivered frozen. Take your selected pieces from the freezer and thaw the lobsters in the fridge overnight. Remove the meat from the shell and set aside. Cut the tail and body shells in half and set aside.

        Strain the stock through a fine-mesh strainer, pressing the shells to release any excess juices. Return the stock to the pot and pour in the coconut milk and evaporated milk. Bring the soup back up to a simmer. Let cook for 10 minutes.

        While the soup is simmering, cook the noodles according to the package's directions. Drain and rinse the noodles, then divide them among 4 bowls.

        Deglaze the pot with vermouth and pour in the stock. Add the bay leaves and bring everything up to a boil before reducing to a simmer. Cover and let cook for 1 hour.

        Add the butter and olive oil to a large stock pot or dutch oven and place over medium heat. Once the butter is frothy, add the shallots, carrots, celery, and a healthy pinch of salt. Sauté until the shallots are just translucent.

        Add the garlic, ginger, lobster shells, and shrimp shells (if using sauté until the shells turn bright red). Stir in the red curry paste and shrimp paste and sauté until fragrant, about 3-5 minutes more.

        Chop the lobster meat into bite-sized pieces and add it to the simmering soup. Take the pot off of the heat and stir until the meat firms up and cooks through in the hot soup. Stir in the lime juice.

        Ladle the soup and lobster meat over the noodles and garnish with beansprouts, cilantro, reserved celery leaves, and radish microgreens. Serve the soup immediately with lime wedges on the side.

        Smoked Salmon Eggs Benedict

        Smoked Salmon Eggs Benedict

        So, Eggs Benedict is already insanely good. But have you tried our Smoked Salmon Eggs Benedict? It’s seriously next level. You may or may not have tried smoked salmon with your Eggs Benny before but… this recipe- knocks all others straight out of the park 🔥

        What makes this recipe so delicious? Chef’s Vault signature Smoked Salmon of course. Using the highest quality of ingredients creates a major impact on the overall taste. Not all smoked salmon is created equally. Procured in Toronto’s finest smokehouse, our process uses a lower salt percentage compared to mass-produced smoked salmon. This curing process results in the salmon having a fresh flavour profile with notes of sugars, black pepper, and lemon.

        Topped with a creamy hollandaise sauce... honestly this dish can do no wrong.

        We’ve just made things even more tempting for you. 🔥

        Ready to get your brunch on? Without further ado, here’s another classic recipe straight out of the vault:


        Ingredients:

        Main:

        • 4 eggs
        • 2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
        • 2 English muffins, halves
        • Butter for spreading
        • 8 slices of Smoked Salmon
        • 1 bunch of fresh cilantro, chives, dill, or parsley, to serve

        Hollandaise Sauce:

        • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
        • 2 teaspoons white wine vinegar
        • 3 egg yolks, room temperature
        • 125g (4.4oz) unsalted butter, diced (room temperature)


        Method:

        For the Hollandaise Sauce:

        1. Put the lemon juice and vinegar in a small bowl, add the egg yolks and whisk with a balloon whisk until light and frothy.
        2. Place bowl over a pan of simmering water and whisk until mixture thickens slightly. Gradually add butter to avoid overcrowding the pan.
        3. After the last of the butter has been incorporated, continue whisking the mixture until thick, ensuring the mixture doesn’t overcook. Season and keep warm.

        4. To Poach the Eggs:

        5. Bring a large pan of water to boil and add the vinegar. Lower the heat so that the water is simmering gently. Stir the water so you have a slight whirlpool, then slide the eggs one by one. Cook each for around 4 minutes, then remove with a slotted spoon.

        6. To Assemble:

        7. Lightly toast and butter the English muffins, then place a few slices of Smoked Salmon on each half. Top each half with an egg and drizzle as much Hollandaise Sauce as you’d like. Garnish with herb of choice and serve with some sizzling sausages and a fresh garden salad.


        There’s nothing like treating yourself to a bougie brunch on a warm and sunny September weekend. Whether you’re cooking for your friends, family… or even just yourself- nothing will boost your mood like creating and perfecting Chef’s Vault Smoked Salmon Eggs Benedict. If you’re feeling extra fancy, make your brunch bougie and boozy. A classic Canadian Caesar or Mimosas will pair perfectly with your Eggs Benny.
