Chefs special grilled lobster- with whisky, sweet red pepper, red onion and cheese sauce

Ingredients

 2 cooked whole lobsters, halved lengthways.

1 red pepper chopped

Half a red onion chopped

75g butter.

40g plain flour.

80ml good quality whisky.

410ml milk.

40g cheddar cheese  

Pink Himalayan Salt Flakes & ground white pepper

2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley

150g chopped baby leaf spinach


Method

Remove meat from lobster shells, chop and set aside until required. Place the lobster shells cut-side up in a large roasting pan. Preheat grill on high.

Melt butter over medium heat add red pepper and onion. Cook until soft. Add the flour and cook, stirring for 1-2 minutes or until mixture bubbles. Remove from heat.

Gradually add the whisky, whisking constantly until mixture is smooth (take care not to set it on fire). Gradually add milk, whisking constantly until smooth and combined. Place over medium heat and cook, stirring constantly for 3-4 minutes or until sauce boils, thickens and coats the back of the spoon. Add the cheese and stir until cheese melts. Remove from heat. Taste and season with salt and pepper. Stir in the parsley, spinach and lobster meat.

Spoon lobster mixture evenly among shells. Cook under preheated grill, for 4 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from heat.

Serve with a portion of homemade chunky chips and a crisp green salad
