Lobster, Chanterelle, Corn & Bacon Salad
The combination of the bacon, the lobster, and the chanterelles is a wonderful and complex taste experience. A salad for a formal occasion, or because you love someone!
Melt the butter in a mixing bowl and add the chopped basil.
Steam the lobster for about 4 minutes. To stop the cooking process, shock the lobsters in cold water and permit them to cool.
Heat the grill to moderately high and split the lobsters in half. Remove the meat from the claws.
Brush the lobster meat with the basil butter and place them on the grill. Cook them meat side down for about 3 ½ minutes.
Turn over and brush again with more butter. Continue grilling for about 3 ½ minutes with the shell side down.
Place the claw meat on the grill and cook for about three minutes.
Remove the lobster from the grill and serve with salad.
For the salad:
In a large pan cook the bacon until crispy. Drain and set aside until needed.
Use the same pan to heat 1 tablespoon olive oil and use it to sauté the chanterelles until they're golden brown. Season with salt and pepper.
Add more oil to the pan and use it to cook the corn and the onion for about 2-3 minutes, or until the onions are translucent and the corn is heated through.
Add the peppers and toss with the rest of the mixture until they are warm.
Add the mushrooms and frisee to the pan.
Toss for about one minute before adding the remaining oil, vinegar and salt and pepper.
Toss together until the frisee just begins to wilt, then add the bacon and serve with the lobster.
