Catalan-style lobster with exotic fruit

An elegant suggestion of Indian Ocean and land of Africa

16-05-2020 di redazione

On the African shores of the Indian Ocean, combining fish with fruit is not a gamble, but a pleasant contrast.
On the other hand, if the fish fauna goes so well with lemon, why not also dare with passion fruit, mango, pineapple and papaya?
Here, for example, is the Catalan lobster recipe with exotic fruit.


1 Mango 
2 fruits of passion
2 slices of pineapple
2 files
1 lobster (about 400-500 days)
an onion
extra virgin olive oil
ground black pepper
half a teaspoon of ginger powder
a sprinkling of paprika
(as you wish: a splash of brandy or white wine)


Cut the fruit into cubes, pit the passion, add the finely chopped onion and lay it all on an oven dish greased with oil.
Sprinkle the fruit with black pepper and ginger powder, and the alcohol to taste.
Heat in the oven already at 180 degrees for three minutes.
Cook the lobster in boiling water for five minutes, drain it and cut it into two parts.
Place it on the baking dish, sprinkle with paprika and oil.
You can also decide to remove the pulp from the carapace, cut it into cubes and mix it with some of the fruit, and then place it back in its place, like a salad.
Serve it still warm, or for those who prefer, let it cool and put it in the fridge for two hours, then serve.
