Sweet and succulent sous vide lobster pairs incredible well with a light and flavorful salad of corn, cherry tomatoes, and avocado. With some butter for richness and basil for a little bite it's a great springtime meal!
Lobster cooked sous vide is tender and succulent, and this recipe showcases it with a simple tomato and corn salad. I prefer my lobster cooked at 131°F (55°C), but 140°F (60°C) will give you a more traditional texture. For a much softer texture you can drop the temperature lower.
To remove the lobster from the shell, you can either cut the shell off with kitchen shears, or boil the lobster for 1 to 2 minutes and chill it in an ice bath.
