Antonia Lofaso is chef/owner of Los Angeles’ Black Market Liquor Bar and Scopa Italian Roots. Her lobster fra diavolo is the perfect way to warm up during these lingering cold months, and pays homage to her native Long Island’s abundant seafood.

“I used to go crabbing in Long Island every year with my family, and we would make crab fra diavolo with all the crabs we caught,” says Lofaso. “This dish is one of my favorites and includes a lot of my family’s flavors, so I thought it was only natural to include this on the menu.” Lofaso served as culinary director for the exclusive Master’s Club at equestrian athletics event Longines Masters of New York this coming spring, and loaned us the recipe to recreate at home.

The mix of seafood with colorful veggies such as artichokes, sunchokes and carrots will brighten up any dinner table, and a hint of chili flakes will give your taste buds a nice kick. Try it over pasta or polenta.
