Ingredients
  • Aioli:
  • 2 quarts lobster stock made by simmering lobster bodies and white Mire Poix in water for 45 minutes then strain.
  • 1 egg yolk*
  • 4 tablespoons canola oil
  • Salt and pepper
  • 4 small vine ripe tomatoes with stem, peeled and sliced
  • 2 (1 1/4 pound) lobsters, cooked and removed from the shell intact
  • 1 avocado
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 lemon, zested and juiced
  • 4 basil leaves, sliced
  • 1 shallot, minced
  • Sea salt and black pepper
Directions
  • To make aioli, reduce stock down to 2 tablespoons and cool. In a mixing bowl combine yolk and stock with a whip, season with salt and pepper. While mixing, slowly add the oil in a steady stream until fully incorporated being careful not to add the oil to fast. Taste and adjust seasoning, reserve.

  • For the salad cut tomatoes in half widthwise, cut bottom flat so that the tomato will stand upright. Slice lobster into bite size pieces and lay out on a sheet pan. Remove avocado skin and stone, slice into 1/8-inch slices. Lay avocado out on a sheet pan. Drizzle with extra virgin olive oil, lemon juice and sprinkle with teaspoon zest, basil, shallot, salt and pepper.

  • Place a spoonful of aioli in the middle of each plate. Place tomato button in center of aioli, top with 3 to 4 slices of avocado and then 1/4 of the lobster. Place top of tomato on top so that it is reassembled. Garnish with baby greens and serve.

*RAW EGG WARNING
  • Food Network Kitchens suggest caution in consuming raw and lightly-cooked eggs due to the slight risk of Salmonella or other food-borne illness. To reduce this risk, we recommend you use only fresh, properly-refrigerated, clean, grade A or AA eggs with intact shells, and avoid contact between the yolks or whites and the shell.
