Ginger lime lobster salad

Salad

1

Halve and clean the lobsters. Brush with 3 tablespoons of lime juice; season with salt and pepper. Broil for 10 minutes; cool. Remove the meat and cut into bite-size pieces.

2

Cook the orzo in a medium saucepan of boiling salted water until al dente, about 7 minutes. Drain and transfer to a small bowl. Toss with 1 tablespoon of olive oil; set aside.

3

In a small bowl, combine the apples and the celery. Toss with the remaining lime juice and olive oil. Season with salt and pepper. Chill.

Ginger beurre blanc dressing

1

In a medium saucepan, combine the shallots, wine and ginger. Over medium-high heat, reduce the mixture until it’s almost the consistency of syrup. Remove from heat and strain, discarding solids.

2

Replace the strained wine-ginger mixture in the saucepan. Over medium heat, whisk in the cream; bring to a gentle boil. Whisk in butter, lime juice, salt and pepper. Remove from heat and cool to lukewarm.

3

In a large bowl, gently combine the lobster meat, orzo and apple-celery mixture. Drizzle with the dressing, add the chervil and toss to coat. Serve immediately.
