Lobster with garlic butter

Lobster with garlic butterNothing goes better with lobster than garlic butter, and lots of it.





1. Cut the lobster in two halves and remove stomach sack and the intestine track. Preheat the oven to 240C/gas 9. Combine the garlic, butter, anchovies and parsley in a food processor for about 30 seconds – until well blended. Set aside.

2. Lay the lobster halves on a baking sheet and drizzle with olive oil. Cook in the oven for 6-7 minutes until the meat has turned white but is still moist. Spoon over enough of the garlic butter to fill the lobster’s head cavity and return to the oven for a minute, to melt the butter. Spread the hollandaise sauce over the lobster meat and put under a hot grill to brown the hollandaise – you want it to bubble but watch carefully to make sure it doesn’t burn. Serve warm.
