AC Lobster Dog Recipe

Makes 24 Lobster Dogs

3kg cooked lobster (this is based on buying the lobster still in its shell – if you are not buying it this way just reduce the quantity)

15 ml lobster bisque, either make from the shells or buy ready made

½ bunch chives, chopped

1 bunch spring onions, sliced finely

For the cream sauce

170 ml double cream

50 ml white wine

50 ml Pernod

50g shallots, finely chopped

2 garlic cloves, finely chopped

2 bay leaves

10 peppercorns

1 tea spoon Dijon mustard

Method

  • Shell lobsters and make a bisque from the shells, if you wish.
  • Chop lobster meat into bite size chunks.
  • To make the cream sauce, reduce the cream, white wine, Pernod, shallots, garlic, bay leaves and peppercorns and mustard until it reduces to about 1/3 of the volume (approx 100 ml.)
  • Stir in the pre-made bisque. You can chill at this stage if you are making the dogs later.
  • Mix lobster meat, reduced bisque cream and bring to a gentle simmer for a few minutes until fully warmed. Add the chives. Season to taste.
  • Pile into buns and garnish with spring onions.

Quick to make and easy to eat! Goes perfectly with a chilled bottle of Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay or Chenin Blanc.

Bon Appetit!
