Ingredients

  • 2 lobsters (1 to 1 1/4 lb each), cooked, chilled and shelled
  • 1 mango, peeled and sliced
  • 1/4 jicama, peeled and sliced into strips
  • 1/2 cucumber, peeled, seeded and sliced thinly lengthwise
  • 1 cup arugula
  • 16 mint leaves
  • 8 sprigs cilantro
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • Sea salt, to taste (TRY: Eden Sea Salt – French Celtic)

CUCUMBER VINAIGRETTE

  • Juice of 1/4 cucumber (about 2 tbsp) (TIP: If you don't have a juicer, you can blend peeled cucumber with just enough water to get blades moving, then strain; you may want to make an extra batch of this dressing and store in the fridge for a couple of days.)
  • 1½ tsp Sucanat
  • 1 tbsp fresh lime juice
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp chopped jalapeño chile pepper

Preparation

  1. Prepare vinaigrette: Combine all ingredients with a whisk until Sucanat is dissolved. Taste and adjust seasonings, if desired. Set aside
  2. Slice lobster tail meat and arrange on a plate in a circle. In a bowl, toss claw meat with mango, jicama, cucumber, arugula, mint, cilantro, oil and vinaigrette. Sprinkle a touch of salt on each piece of plated lobster, and top plate with a pile of salad.
