1 lb. fresh lobster
1 passion fruit, halved
1 tbsp olive oil
1 blood orange, halved
1/2 oz. chilled Champagne (optional)
Sea salt to taste
1 heaping tbsp smoked roe
Edible flowers for garnish
Crunchy peas for garnish
Thai basil for garnish
Step 1: Cook 1 lb. of lobster for 4 minutes, remove from boiling water and shock in ice water bath. Remove shell (watch this video for simple steps), and slice lobster into thin pieces. Arrange “carpaccio” pieces in the centre of a chilled bowl.
Step 2: Cut 1 passion fruit in half and remove juice and pulp into a stainless steel bowl. Whisk in olive oil, and squeeze half a blood orange into the bowl. Reserve the other half of the blood orange for garnish.
Step 3: Pour dressing over sliced lobster. Pour chilled champagne over dressed lobster, sprinkle with sea salt and add smoked roe. Garnish with some edible flowers, blood orange segments, crunchy peas and thai basil.
