  • 100 gram cream
  • 75 gram cold butter

  • cress

Instructions
 

Creamy vanilla sauce

  • Cut the shallot and pepper in rings. Crush the clove of garlic.
  • Fry the shallot, red peper, vanilla, and garlic in a pan with oil on a medium fire. When everything is soft, deglaze with the rosé.
  • Reduce entirely. Add the stock. Reduce to 20%.
  • Add the cream and bring to the boil
  • Seive and add salt to taste.
  • Bind with the cold butter, the sauce is now ready for use.

Cherry tomato and burnt sprout

  • Use the burner to roast the tomatoes until they are black.
  • Remove the skin. You are now left with a beautiful skinless tomato. Use salt and pepper tot taste and put aside.
  • Cut the sprouts in halve and peel. Put the loose leaves on an stainless steel plate and burn the lightly. Put aside for later

Finish:

  • Take the tail out of the lobster shell
  • Heat the lobstertail in the vanilla sauce. This way, the lobster is poached until warm. When it is warm, it is time to garnish.
  • Put the tail on a plate. Divide the sprouts over the tail. Put some cress in between.
  • Put three cherry tomatoes next to every tail. Pour the sauce on the tomatoes.
  • Finish the recipe with a onion and cress crunch.
