Serves 4
AIOLI
2 egg yolks

3 cloves garlic, peeled

500ml olive oil

30ml hot water

60ml lemon juice

Sea salt & cracked black pepper

LOBSTER
1 x 800g lobster or 2 x 400g lobsters

1 tbsp ghee

200g samphire

Extra-virgin olive oil
Method
1
. Place the egg yolks and garlic in a food processor and combine. Once thoroughly mixed, slowly start to drizzle in the oil while still processing. Take care not to add the oil too quickly or the mixture may curdle. Slowly add the hot water and lemon juice. Once completely incorporated, season to taste.

2. With a very sharp knife, cut the lobster in two from the head downwards. Remove the waste shoot and brush the flesh with the ghee.
 
3. With the flesh side up, grill the lobster for about 8 minutes or until the shell has turned bright red and the flesh just starts to come away from the shell.
When the lobster is almost cooked, blanch the samphire in boiling water for a minute, drain and toss with the olive oil.
 
Tip
If using frozen lobster, ensure it’s thoroughly defrosted and reduce the cooking time slightly.
