- Lobster meat from 1 cooked lobster
We cooked the lobsters ourselves, but you can buy lobster meat frozen from the supermarket
- About 100 gram mixed lettuce
- 1 green apple (eg: Granny Smith)
- 3 slices white bread
- 1/2 lemon (juice + grated skin)
- 1/2 cucumber
- Olive oil
- Salt and pepper to liking
- Optional: cress for garnish
Kitchen equipment needed
- Cutting board
- Chefs knife
- Citrus grater
- Small bowl
- Medium-sized skillet
- Vegetable peeler
Preparation — 10 minutes
TRIM the ends off the 3 slices of white bread. SLICE the middle part into cubes. HEAT up a dash of olive oil in the medium-sized skillet. COOK the diced bread golden-brown and crunchy. SEASON with a pinch of salt and pepper. This is the easiest way of preparing your own croutons.
MAKE a simple dressing using juice and grate from 1/2 a lemon. ADD about 50 ml olive oil into a small bowl while whisking the citrus juice. SEASON with a pinch of salt and pepper. WASH and dry the lettuce, if needed. WASH the cucumber, then use a vegetable peeler to create thin cucumber lints.
Finishing the lobster and green apple salad — 5 minutes
DIVIDE the lettuce over two plates, slice the lobster meat in smaller chunks. DIVIDE lobster meat over the two plates and roll up the cucumber lints. WASH the apple and slice into thin, long strips. THE reason why you should slice the apple last is to prevent discoloration.
DIVIDE the apple strips, croutons and citrus dressing over the lobster salad. Optionally garnish with the cress.
Enjoy your meal!
