Lobster on Charred Potato with Smoked Bacon & Apple

Prep time: 5 minutes Cooking time: 13-15 minutes Serves: 2 Skill level: For the Foodie Recipe by: Seafish

A great way to liven up a baked potato, with lobster and bacon replacing the usual toppings


The method

  1. Bake the potatoes (in the microwave for about 10 minutes, or for about 45 minutes in the oven) until cooked, remove and cut in half lengthways.
  2. Heat a grill and lay the potato halves under the heat, cut side up, to cook. 
  3. In a pan heat a little oil and add the bacon - once it starts to colour, turn down the heat, add a knob of butter and lay in the sliced lobster to warm through. 
  4. Once the potato halves take on a bit of colour place them on a tray cut side up.
  5. Transfer the warmed lobster slices on to the potatoes, sprinkle on the apple batons and then the cheese, place under a hot grill to melt the cheese.
  6. Serve with a crisp salad.

As an alternative to apple, you could try using radish batons instead.
