Step 1: Lobster

Cook the lobsters in water seasoned with salt, dried fennel, and black pepper.

Allow 3 minutes’ cooking time for the tails and 6 for the claws, then shell the latter, making sure to remove all cartilage.

Cut each lobster tail into 5 medallions, remove the internal membrane, and devein.

In a pan, toss the lobster in the lobster butter. Remove and set on a rack. Deglaze the pan with a dash of cognac, and reduce a little. Add the lobster stock, reduce to a glaze, and emulsify with a dab of butter and a little olive oil.

Put the medallions back in the pan, and season with freshly ground pepper and the chopped basil leaves.

Cut each tomato wedge into 3 even slices.

Add the tomato and truffle slices to the pan, and remove from the heat immediately. Set aside.
