Step 1: Lobster

Cook the lobsters in water seasoned with 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 each lobster tail in 5 medallions, remove the internal membrane, and devein.

Sauté the medallions with lobster butter, shell-side down in a hot sauté pan. Remove the lobster, and add the coarsely chopped reserved roe. Mash with a fork until finely crushed.

Deglaze with some cognac, reduce a little, and the lobster stock. Reduce a little, add the lobster medallions, and infuse with some truffle juice and the crushed basil leaf. Add a drizzle of olive oil, a dash of lemon juice, and freshly ground pepper.
