Method

1
Start by making the rustic tomato sauce. Sauté the onion and garlic until light brown. Add the fresh chopped tomatoes and let them cook for 5 minutes
  • 1 white onion, finely chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 5 tomatoes, skinless and diced

Add the passata, the lobster bisque, the wine and the bouquet garni and cook for a further 10 minutes
  • 150ml of passata
  • 150ml of lobster bisque
  • 100ml of white wine
  • 1 bouquet garni

In a separate frying pan, dry-roast the chilli for a couple of minutes and then add to the sauce. Season well, remove the bouquet garni and set aside. You will be left with around 500ml of sauce. Don't worry if you don't use it all, as it freezes very well

  • salt
  • pepper

Next, prepare the lobster. Starting at the top of the tail, cut lengthways with a pair of kitchen shears, trying not to cut the flesh. Using your hands, gently but firmly pull the meat from the shell in one piece
