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.

Step 2: Lobster Ragout

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

Sauté the medallions in lobster butter shell-side down in a hot sauté pan. Take them out, add the lobster stock and reduce a little, then put the lobster medallions back into the pan. Season with a little truffle juice, olive oil, a dash of lemon juice, and freshly ground pepper, tossing the medallions in this sauce.
