For the Risotto: In a medium saucepot, saute onions in olive oil on low heat until translucent and tender. Add rice and stir until coated with oil. Add wine and continue to stir until the rice has absorbed most of the wine. Add lobster broth 1/2 cup at a time, while constantly stirring. When the rice is almost tender, add cooked lobster meat, butter, and cheese. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. Set aside.
For the Foie Gras Butter: Place wine, shallot, thyme, bay leaves, and peppercorns in a saucepot and bring to a boil. Reduce until almost dry. Add cream and reduce by 1/2. Over a medium flame, slowly add butter while constantly whisking until all the butter is emulsified. Be careful not to boil. In a separate pan, sear diced foie gras until evenly browned. Whisk rendered foie gras and rendered fat slowly into the spice-butter mixture. Salt and pepper to taste. Set aside.
Melt 2 tablespoons butter in a pan, and then add the chanterelle mushrooms. Cook until almost tender. Add corn and cook until tender. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.
Saute halibut in olive oil in frying pan until cooked. Season with salt and pepper.
When plating this dish, place a generous spoonful of the lobster risotto in the center of the plate. Place the halibut on top of the risotto. Ladle 2 ounces of foie gras butter around the fish and risotto. Sprinkle the vegetable mixture around the fish and risotto. Garnish with cherry tomatoes.
