Lobsters from Walter Purkis

A lobster will be at its freshest and tastiest if you buy it live and cook it yourself. To offer our customers the freshest lobster on the very best condition we have installed a “Homarium” in our Muswell Hill shop. This is a specialist tank that keeps the lobsters humanely in ideal conditions. You can see more here >>

If you are not keen on the extra effort of cooking the lobster in your own kitchen don’t worry – We have plenty of prepared lobsters in the shop. You can also choose from the tank and we will cook it for you.

This delicious dish is surprisingly quick to get ready – allow about 15 minutes. The quantities below are for two people

Cooking Method For  Prawn And Lobster Salad

First make the spicy salsa.  In a small bowl mix together the red onion, chilli, ginger, garlic and tomatoes. Next add the lime juice to taste, a small splash of olive oil to moisten. Finally season with salt and some freshly ground black pepper. Stir through the chopped coriander.

Season the prawns with a little curry powder to taste. Heat a non-stick frying pan, and dry fry the prawns for 30 sec or until just cooked. You will see the colour change from translucent to opaque white and orange.

To serve arrange the lettuce leaves on a serving plate. Fill with the lobster and prawns, spoon over the salsa and decorate with the orange segments. Eat right away.
