Lobster and Potato with Poached Egg and Hollandaise Sauce
Recipe type: Appetizers
  • 1 lobster, about 1 1/2 pounds
  • 4 cooked new potatoes
  • 2 eggs for poaching
  • 2 egg yolks for hollandaise sauce
  • 250 gram butter; (9oz)
  • 50 milliliters vinegar; (2 fluid ounce)
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  1. Put a large pan of boiling water big enough to hold the lobster. When boiling add a little salt, place in the lobster, allow the water to come to the boil then set the timer for 7 minutes. After removing, plunge into ice water to cool down, when cool remove the lobster meat from the shell and set aside.
  2. To poach the eggs you need a pan of boiling water with a little vinegar in. Before you add the eggs the water should be boiling. Crack your eggs into the centre of the water and cook for about 3 minutes, remove and refresh in cold water. Set aside.
  3. To make the hollandaise sauce crack the egg yolks into a bowl, add the vinegar and a teaspoons of water. Over a pan of boiling water whip the egg to a thick foam, then slowly add the softened butter which can make the sauce even thicker. Remove from the heat and check seasoning.
  4. To assemble the dish place a pastry ring in the middle of a 10 inch plate. Arrange the lobster and potato alternatively leaving a hole in the middle for the warm poached egg. Finally cover the poached egg with hollandaise sauce.
