When Denise and I made our video on How to Kill a Lobster Humanely, I had the pleasure of eating the lobsters since Denise won’t touch them, let alone eat them. I still laugh out loud every time I think of her jumping out of her skin about Thelma and Louise.
After eating some of the freshly steam lobster, I saved the rest for my husband to enjoy with me. We ended up with a daytime meal, so I made this tasty and light salad to enjoy the perfectly decadent lobster. Oh so good!
I blended these perfect lobsters with some Roasted Tomatillo Salsa I had just made and had leftover too. Yum!

1/4 cup Greek yogurt

Special Equipment and Other Items Needed:
Preparing Roasted Tomatillo and Lobster Salad:
Make the tomatillo and poblano salsa according to the recipe in the link above. For this amount of lobster, I would cut the recipe in half which is what is indicated in the quantities above.
Steam the lobster and remove from the shell as described in the video. Simple and easy. Just takes a few minutes…if Denise is not in your kitchen freaking out!
Mix the tomatillo salsa, yogurt and juice of one lime. Taste. Add salt and pepper as needed.
Add in the lobster and stir gently to combine.
Plate with fresh spinach tossed with salt and pepper and the juice of the other lime.
Cut an avocado and add to the side. Top with the lobster and tomatillo salsa mixture.
