SFS Summer Social 2012: Spicy Lobster Tostada

Spicy Lobster Tostada from Blue Star Diner

To cook lobster:
1 quart water
1 Celery stalks, whole
1 Carrot, whole
1/2 White Onion, minced
3 sprigs Thyme
1 Bay Leaf
1/2 cup sweet White Wine
1/2 cup White Vinegar
2 lb lobster

Cooked lobster, shredded
2 Shallots, minced
2 Jalapeno pepper, minced
1 bunch Chives, minced
2 Lemons, juice
200mL Mayonnaise
Apple cider vinegar, to taste
Kosher salt, to taste

1/4 Iceberg Lettuce, thinly sliced
2 Avocados, thinly sliced
1 Mango, thinly sliced
1/4 Red onion, minced
Sambal Oelek, to taste

32 – 3” golden fried corn tortillas (or tortilla chips)

To cook the lobster: In a large pot with steamer fitting, add all ingredients except lobster and bring to a boil. Place the steamer in the pot, then the lobster, claws first, and cover with a tight fitting lid. Start a timer for 12-15 minutes as soon as the water comes back to a boil. Once done, remove from heat, let cool, then remove all meat from the shell.

In a large bowl combine all filling ingredients and mix until well combined.

Place a dollop of filling on crisp tortilla shells or chips, and top with lettuce, avocado, mango, red onion and a dollop of sambal oelek. Serve immediately.
