First, prepare the sauce Choron. Place the egg yolks, salt and sugar in a food processor and give them a quick whizz. In a small pan, heat the lemon juice, wine and wine vinegar together with the shallot and reduce by half
  • 1 shallot, peeled and finely sliced
  • 3 egg yolks
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • 1/2 tsp caster sugar
  • 1 tbsp of lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp of white wine vinegar
2
In another pan, melt the butter and allow to bubble. Turn on the food processor again and strain in the hot reduced liquid, followed slowly by the hot butter
  • 175g of salted butter
3
When all of the butter has been added, pour the Hollandaise sauce into a bowl and then stir in the tomatoes and tarragon to make it a sauce Choron. Cover with cling film until required and keep somewhere warm
  • 2 tbsp of chopped tarragon
  • 3 tomatoes, skinned, deseeded and diced
4
Plunge a pointed knife into the cross on the top of the lobsters' heads to kill them instantly. Remove the claws and remove the head
  • 4 lobsters, approx 700g each
5
Bring a large pan of salted water to the boil, plunge the lobsters and claws into the pan and remove the lobster bodies after 3 minutes. Immediately plunge into ice-cold water. Remove the claws after 4 minutes and plunge into the ice-cold water with the bodies
6
Preheat a water bath to 60°C
7
Crack open the claws, remove the meat (in whole pieces) and place into a vacuum bag. Remove the meat from the body of the lobsters and place into a separate bag. Add some clarified butter to each bag together with a few sprigs of tarragon and season with salt and pepper. Seal in a chamber sealer and cook in the water bath for 10 minutes
  • 3 sprigs of tarragon
  • black pepper
  • salt flakes
8
Heat a frying pan until very hot and add some clarified butter. Add the spinach and cook until it just starts to wilt. Season to taste
  • 200g of spinach, washed
