Un astice for a special occasion

Our dear friend Leen is here for a few days. Iris is going to demonstrate how to prepare lobster. My tribute is : buying the ingredients, preparing a herbal butter,a simple green salad and oven baked potatoes. Mix a bunch of chopped parsley, 1 or 2 garlic cloves, the zeste of 1 lemon with 50 grams if butter in a blender. Add some olive oil to make it smoother. Season with pepper and salt. Store in the fridge.

PS living lobsters go in a kind of coma status if you store them in the fridge or cold temperature outside.

Fill a large pan with water and a cube of vegetable stock. Once the water is boiling, add the lobster ( approximately 750 grams each) one by one. Boil only for 1-3 mins ( depends on size). Cool down. Use a sharp knife to cut the lobsters in halves. Iris removes the greenish part from the head ( in certain recipes this part is used to prepare the sauce). Break the claws. Put the halves on a tray on baking paper. Spread the herbal butter.

Heat the grill. Put the tray under the grill for 10 mins.

Serve the lobster with a green salad and oven baked potatoes as main course.

Special food for special friendsā¤.
