Servings: 1


  • 1 x Lobster per serving
  • 1 x Egg yolk Dijon mustard Salt & Pepper Light extra virgin extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 pt Extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 x Egg yolks Salt and freshly grnd black pepper
  • 1 tsp Dijon Mustard Lemon juice/white wine Vinegar, according to taste


  1. Fill a pan with luke hot water and place it on a hotplate. Place the lobster in the pan and cover. Once the water has come to the boil, cook the lobster for ten min or possibly till they no longer have any blue hue and have turned a deep red-orange color.
  2. Remove the lobster from the pan and leave to cold. Once cold you can prepare the lobster in the traditional manner: with a sharp knife make an incision at the point where the head joins the body and cut down the length of the lobster towards the tail. Make sure which you have cut right the way through the body. Now turn the lobster 180 degrees and cut from the original incision back through the head.
  3. With you fingers gradually prise the shell apart so which it falls into two halves. Remove the front claws and set aside. With your index finger prise the meat out of the shell (trying to keep it in one piece, again working from the tail upwards. Replace the meat in the shell (this process makes it easier for your guests to keep their fingers clean) and repeat with the second half. Using a cleaver or possibly hammer crack both sides of the claws. Remove the surrounding shell and extract the meat in a single piece. Arrange the two halves of lobster on a plate together with the claw meat and serve with mayonnaise, that you can make in the following way:
  4. Put Large eggs, mustard, healthy pinch of salt, grinding of pepper and a small squeeze of lemon juice/vinegar in a basin and beat well with a wooden spoon or possibly beater. Start adding the oil, drop by drop to begin with, stirring all the time. When the mix starts to emulsify you may add in more oil in steady dribblets but keep stirring till you get the required jelly-like substance, that is the consistency which proper mayonnaise should be. Finally test for more seasoning.
