METHOD

As the aim of this menu is to ‘cook together,’one of you will be responsible for the salad while the other cooks the lobster.

Salad & Vinaigrette

  1. Clean the green beans by removing the two extremities. Then blanch them for 7-8 minutes. The green beans should be cooked but still “al dente”. Remove the green beans from the boiling water and put them in ice cold water for 2-3 minutes.
  2. Put the onion slices in a bowl of cold water with a pinch of salt, and leave to soak for an hour.
  3. In a small bowl mix the balsamic vinegar, salt, pepper and olive oil.
  4. Mix the green beans with red onions & parsley, add salt, freshly ground black pepper, 1 Tbsp of olive oil, 1 tsp of balsamic vinegar & the almonds.

Lobster Tails

  1. Take the Lobster tail, open the shell carefully without removing the meat from the shell. Rub the meat with a drizzle of olive oil.
  2. Put the lobster tails in an oven tray; cook at 180°C for 6-7 minutes.

Serve

  1. In a tended plate put the green beans in the center, add the roasted lobster tail with the meat still attached to the shell, then season with the balsamic vinaigrette & truffle oil.
  2. Sit close to each other and enjoy your first course.
