Blue lobster, onion compote and coffee bisque

The evocative aroma of foamed coffee bisque enhances juicy sweet meat adorned with sumptuously caramelised strands

Preparation (4 persons)

  • Remove the heads and tails from the lobsters.
  • Tie the tails together so that they do not close up during cooking, and set the heads aside.
  • Bring the vegetable stock to the boil, add the lobster tails, remove from the heat and leave to cook for 6 minutes.
  • Drain and leave to cool at room temperature. Remove the shell and refrigerate.
  • Crush the lobster heads into a paste, using a mortar and pestle.
  • Mix with the wine and water in a saucepan and cook until the alcohol has disappeared.
  • Pass through a conical strainer and add 100g of butter.
  • At the last moment, pour in the coffee and stir into a froth.
  • Peel and clean the onions.
  • Chop them finely and sweat them in the butter.
  • Continue cooking on a low heat for 1 hour until they form a compote. Season.
  • Blanch the pearl onions in a saucepan of boiling water.
  • Remove from the heat and cool down immediately in a bowl of iced water.
  • Cut the onions in half, removing the root part which holds the layers together, to separate them into petals.
  • In another pan of water, cook the beans, carrots, celery and smoked bacon on a low heat.

To finish:

  • Heat up the lobster tails in the bisque.
  • Remove and cut each tail into 4 equal portions.
  • Place the onion compote, beans, pearl onion petals and two slices of lobster on a dish.
  • Whisk the coffee bisque into a mousse and pour onto the vegetables, dressing the lobster.
