In a medium, wide skillet, heat the cooking oil over medium heat. Add the tortillas to the skillet, a few at a time, and fry for about 1 minute on each side. Put the fried tortillas on paper towels to drain and sprinkle with salt, to taste.
In a saute pan, warm the lobster meat with the lemon oil over low heat minutes until warm, about 5 minutes.
Start assembling the nachos by stacking the tortilla chips on each plate. Add the black bean salsa then top with half a cup of the lobster meat. Garnish with creme fraiche, avocado, queso fresco, and chives. Serve.
