Flame-grilled lobster with roasted garlic aioli
This is a very easy way to prepare a cooked rock lobster. It’s split into two, gently heated on a flame grill and basted with lemon and parsley butter.
Preparation time: 15 minutes
Cooking time: 1 hour for garlic, 6 minutes for lobster
Serves: 2 (one half tail per person)
- 600g cooked lobster
- 60g butter, melted
- 2 tablespoons of parsley, chopped
- 2 tablespoons of lemon juice
- Salt flakes and freshly cracked black pepper, to taste
- 1 lemon
Roasted garlic aioli:
- 1 head of garlic
- 1 tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil
- 2 egg yolks, at room temperature
- 1 teaspoon of Dijon mustard
- 1 tablespoon of white wine vinegar
- ½ teaspoon of salt
- Pinch of white pepper
- 150ml extra virgin olive oil
- 150ml vegetable oil
- 1 tblsp snipped chives
- 2 cups of mixed lettuce leaves
- 1 tablespoon of lemon juice
- 3 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil
To make the aioli, cut the top quarter off the garlic head so that the cloves are partly exposed and drizzle with one tablespoon of olive oil. Season the garlic and wrap in aluminium foil. Place in a pre-heated oven set at 160ºC for one hour. Leave to cool, then squeeze out the cloves and mash until smooth.
Combine the egg yolks, mustard, vinegar and seasoning. Whisk well then slowly incorporate the two oils, a few drops at a time at first, then more as the mixture thickens.
Blend in the garlic purée and chives and check for correct seasoning. The addition of a tablespoon of cold water will lighten the mixture, if needed.
Split the cooked lobster in half and remove the head sac, feathery gills and intestinal tract.
Combine the melted butter, chopped parsley, lemon juice and seasoning.
Place the lobster halves, flesh side down, on to a pre-heated, lightly oiled open grill on moderate heat. Heat for two minutes, then turn over on to the shell side. Now brush the lobster flesh with the seasoned butter and grill until the butter has melted on to and into the lobster flesh (about five minutes).
Present warm with the dressed lettuce leaves, half a lemon and a bowl of the roasted garlic aioli.
