Donegal Bay Lobster & Watermelon Salad
|Enda's Donegal Bay Lobster & Watermelon Salad|
- Gently simmer the lobster for 20 mins over a light heat. When it’s cooked drop it into iced water to cool quickly. This stops the cooking process so the lobster does not get tough.
- Mix your rocket leaf, red onion and cherry tomatoes together and chill. To make the dressing use 3 parts oil to 1 part vinegar. Season with pepper and salt and add the juice of a lemon and orange to the oil.
- Add a spoon of Dijon mustard and whisk it all together. Coat the rocket salad evenly with the dressing.
- Set on your plate and place the shelled lobster meat on top. Neatly arrange the thinly sliced watermelon and salad on the plate and finish with a spoon of marie rose sauce.
