• 1 cooked lobster (see tip below for video guide on how to prepare lobster), claws and tail meat kept separate from the smaller bits of meat
  • crusty bread, to serve

For the sauce

For the salad


  • STEP 1

    To make the sauce, warm the lemon juice in a small saucepan. Add the butter, a few cubes at a time, swirling them into the lemon juice over a very low heat to melt them, adding a few more pieces until all the butter is used. Take the sauce off the heat, season to taste and keep warm.

  • STEP 2

    To make the salad, gently toss the rocket, avocado and lobster meat together. Dress with the lemon juice and olive oil, and toss again until everything is mixed and coated.

  • STEP 3

    To serve, stir the herbs through the sauce and pour into a ramekin or small bowl. Put the sauce on a plate and pile the large chunks of lobster meat on one side and the salad on the other. Bring the plate to the table to share – dip the tail meat, claws and crusty bread into the sauce.
