Ingredients for 4 servings

  • 4 shelled lobster tails

Avocado confit

  • 300 g avocado pulp
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • Juice of half a lime
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper

Creamy lime jelly

  • 200 ml whipping cream (42% fat)
  • Juice of half a lime
  • 1 sheet of gelatine 
  • Salt and pepper

Tomato jelly

  • 200 ml tomato purée
  • 1 sheet of gelatine
  • Salt and pepper

Aromatic herb jelly 

  • 200 ml fish stock
  • Parsley, coriander, chervil, dill, spinach, basil, tarragon, all chopped
  • 2 sheets of gelatine
  • Salt and pepper

Chive brick pastry feathers

  • 4 sheets of brick pastry
  • 12 chives
  • Clarified butter


  • 40 g caviar
  • Olive oil
  • Black salt

Freshly ground pepper


Special equipment

Shallow stainless steel container of coarse salt


Vacuum pack the lobster tails and cook them at low temperature (60 °C) for fifteen minutes. Refresh in iced water.

Alternatively, they may be cooked in a traditional court bouillon for four to five minutes (in the shell).


Avocado confit

Blend the avocado pulp with the lime juice, salt, pepper and olive oil. Place in a bowl and chill. For a firmer more flavourful result, this mixture should be prepared twenty-four hours in advance.


Shot glass with three Jellies

Lime jelly: heat the cream with the lime. Add the sheet of gelatine previously soaked in cold water and squeezed out. Season.

Tomato jelly: heat the tomato purée. Add the sheet of gelatine previously soaked in cold water and squeezed out. Season.

Aromatic herb jelly: mix the herbs with the fish stock and then heat. Add the sheets of gelatine previously soaked in cold water and squeezed out. Season.


Let the three mixtures cool separately and when they begin to set, pour the jellies in layers in the glasses, one after the other: after each layer, place the glasses at an angle in the container filled with salt and let the jelly set before pouring in the next one and changing the angle. Alternatively, one can skip the container of salt and simply make horizontal layers.


Cut eight sheets of brick pastry into feather shapes. Insert three chives between two buttered sheets to obtain four feathers. Brown them lightly in a pan in a little clarified butter. Put to one side.


Cut the lobsters into thin slices and arrange them on the plates. Season with olive oil, black salt and freshly ground pepper. Place the chive-brick feather on top. Add the shot glass and a scoop of the avocado topped with a little caviar.
