Culy actually wanted to make an asparagus dish with lobster, but they ran out of asparagus. So on to plan B. And what a delicious plan that turned out to be: grilled Oosterschelde lobster with smoky chipotle sauce and corn. Call it lobster the Mexican way. ole!
Oosterschelde lobster the Mexican way
Preheat the grill of your oven (you can also make this recipe very well on a barbecue!).
Remove the lobster from the package and let it come to room temperature on a cutting board.
Start by making the sauce (the mojo). Heat the olive oil in a saucepan over medium heat. Add the garlic cloves and cook in the warm oil for about two minutes, until soft and starting to brown.
Pour the warm oil into a food processor or blender, along with the stock, the chipotles in adobo, and some salt and pepper. Blend until smooth and return to the pan. Heat over low heat and keep warm.
In the meantime, rub the corn cobs with some olive oil and fry them in a hot pan (can also be used in a grill pan), turning regularly.
Brush the meat of the lobsters with some of the sauce. Place them under the grill for about 3 minutes, until the meat is nicely cooked. Tip: if you can easily get between the meat and the shell with a knife, the lobster is cooked.
Place the Oosterschelde lobster on the plates. Sprinkle the corn on the cob with some lime juice and the Maldon salt and place them next to the lobster. Divide some of the chopped coriander over it and serve with the remainder of the sauce, the mayonnaise and the remaining lime wedges.
