Lobster Butter



Step 1: Lobster

Chop the lobster shells with a meat book in a blender bowl. Set aside.

Step 2: Aromatics

Sweat the unpeeled garlic cloves, shallots and tomato paste in some olive oil. Add the lobster shells and sweat lightly, then add the bouquet garni and the melted butter. Simmer over low heat for 30 minutes.

Step 3: Finishing

Add the pepper, basil and tarragon. Infuse for 10 minutes and filter through cheesecloth, reserving only the fat. The lobster butter is ready to use.
