  • 4 Cuisine & Ocean frozen spiny lobster tails

  • ½ an orange
  • 10g parmesan
  • 400g new potatoes

Defrost the spiny lobster tails for 12 hours in the fridge the day before. Preheat the oven at 240°C. Cut the potatoes in two, spread them in a large dish and mix with olive oil, crushed garlic and salt. Cook for 35 minutes and stirring from time to time. Mix the soft butter with the salt, pepper, parmesan and grated citrus zests. Roll the mixture into a sausage in a transparent film and put in the freezer. When the potatoes are cooked, turn on the oven grill. Cut the spiny lobster tails in two. Place them on top of the potatoes, shell-side up and put in the oven for 3 minutes. Turn the spiny lobsters over, spread ¾ of the sliced flavoured butter on the flesh and cook for 5 minutes. Serve with the remaining butter and a salad of young lettuce shoots.
