2 cups lobster meat
1/2 cup mayonnaise (we like the Japanese brand Kewpie)
1/2 yellow bell pepper, finely diced
1/2 red bell pepper, finely diced
2 stalks Chinese celery, finely diced
1 avocado, diced
1/3 cup scallion, finely chopped
2 leaves tarragon, finely minced
Juice of a half lemon
Freshly ground black pepper
Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Place the lobster in the water then turn heat down to medium. Cover and cook until lobster is just cooked through, about 10-15 minutes depending on the size of your lobster. For a 5 pound lobster, we cooked it for 12 minutes. Transfer the lobster to the sink to cool. Once the lobster is cooled, use a hammer to crack the shell and remove lobster meat. Cut lobster meat into large chunks.
In a large mixing bowl, mix the mayonnaise with lemon juice, scallion, tarragon, bell peppers and celery. Add salt & pepper to taste. Then carefully fold in the lobster meat and avocado. Serve at room temperature or refrigerate until ready to serve.
*Note: the water you cooked the lobster in can be reduced down to about 1/3. It’s great to use the next day as a shellfish pasta sauce base, lobster or shrimp bisque, for rice dishes, paella or risotto. Happy Cooking!
