- 1 x 675g fresh lobster, ready to cook
- 50g fresh breadcrumbs
- 125g butter
- 1 tsp. salt
- 1/2 tsp. black pepper
- 1 tsp. dried tarragon
- 1 tbsp. freshly chopped parsley
- 2 tbsp. grated parmesan
- 2 tsp. extra-virgin olive oil
Bring a pot of water to the boil. Add the lobster, cover and cook for around 8 minutes. Remove from the pot, drain and leave to cool until you can handle it. Preheat oven to 200C.
Split the lobster in half lengthways using a sharp knife. Remove the black strip if present. Remove the meat, chop and mix in a bowl with the breadcrumbs, butter, salt, pepper, tarragon, parsley and parmesan. Stuff back into the lobster and drizzle with oil. Place onto a baking tray and cook for 10-15 minutes until browned.
