    Nova Scotia Lobster With Wasabi Sauce

    Waitrose Nova Scotia Lobster is caught in the icy-clear waters of Canada's north Atlantic coast. You can buy it freshly cooked and prepared, ready to eat, from the delicatessen chiller cabinet. Serve hot or cold with a creamy wasabi sauce, made with hot horseradish paste, for a perfect Christmas Eve or New Year's Eve dinner, or a meal for a special occasion. Depending on the level of heat preferred, add more or less wasabi paste.

    • Preparation time: 15 minutes
    • Cooking time: 10 minutes
    • Total time: 25 minutes 25 minutes

    Serves: 2 to 4 as starter

    Ingredients

    • ½ bunch salad onions
    • 2.5cm piece root ginger, peeled
    • 1 pack fresh coriander
    • 2 x 400g packs Waitrose Nova Scotia Lobster
    • 25g unsalted butter, melted
    • 100ml fish or vegetable stock
    • 142ml pot Waitrose Double Cream
    • 1-2 tsp Kinjirushi Wasabi Horseradish Paste
    • Salt and freshly ground black pepper

    Method

    1. Roughly chop the salad onions, ginger, coriander and seasoning, place in a food processor and blend to a paste.
    2. Heat the butter in a frying pan and, taking care not to burn, add the ginger and herb paste. Cook over a moderate heat for 3 minutes, stirring continuously, then pour in the stock. Bring to the boil and simmer for 2-3 minutes. Stir in the cream and wasabi paste and cook gently for 2 minutes, stirring continuously. Season to taste.
    3. Place the lobsters on a plate and pour the sauce over them. Serve immediately with a little watercress and warm ciabatta bread.
    4. Variation: brush the lobsters with a little melted butter, place flesh side up under a preheated medium-hot grill for approximately five minutes.
    5. The wasabi sauce can be served with grilled cod or whole prawns, or home-made fish cakes.
