Fresh tagliatelli with lobster and young salad leaves

Main course

Ingredients

Measures for 4 servings:

  • 4 lobsters (around 400g each)
  • 450g fresh tagliatelli
  • 1 bag of mixed salad leaves
  • Sun- dried tomatoes
  • 3 dessert spoons of olive oil
  • 150ml crème fraiche or sour cream
  • 1 bunch of tarragon
  • salt and pepper

  1. Remove shells from the lobsters.  Crack the claws without removing the flesh.  Heat the oil in a saucepan and fry the lobster flesh until golden.  Remove from the pan and place the flesh in the middle of 4 silver foil sheets (papillotes).
  2. Chop the tarragon and mix with the crème fraiche, season the lobster.  Light the oven at mark 8 (240°).
  3. Place a heaped dessert spoonful of the tarragon mixture next to each portion of lobster and close the foil to make a parcel.  When the oven has heated up, cook the parcels for 8 minutes.
  4. During this time, cook the pasta in a large pan of boiling salted water, for 3-5 minutes, according to the cooking instructions.  Drain and keep warm.  Divide the pasta between 4 plates. Open the foil parcels and place the lobster on top of the pasta.
  5. Cover with the remaining tarragon cream, add several dried tomatoes and young salad leaves.
