Lobster tails served with a delicate sparkling wine sauce

Serves: 4 - 6
Cooking Time: 30 mins

Ingredients

  • 9 lobster tails, fresh or frozen, rinsed well
  • 1 x 750ml bottle MCC (Méthode Cap Classique) or sparkling wine
  • 4 spring onions, sliced
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 300ml fresh cream
  • 30ml (2 tbsp) cornflour
  • 150g butter

Instructions

1

In a large pot, bring the lobsters, wine, onions, garlic and seasoning to the boil.

2

Cover with a lid, reduce the heat and simmer for about 10 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, remove the lobsters and set aside until needed. Strain and set aside the liquid but discard the garlic and onion.

3

Pour the liquid back into a clean pot and add the cream. Boil until the liquid is reduced to a thick consistency. Mix in the cornflour only if necessary.

4

Using a wire whisk, beat in the butter 15ml (1 tbsp) at a time until smooth.

5

Place the lobsters on a serving dish and spoon over the sauce. Serve warm.

Notes

To drink: Keep it festive with a flute of Boschendal MCC Grande Cuvée Brut. Bright and zesty with a Granny Smith crunch, the bubbles cut through the rich sauce while enhancing the clean, fresh taste of the seafood.
