Lobster Cocktail with Ginger Vinaigrette

Author: Canadian Living

"There has to be lobster," agreed Bob and Barbara when planning the menu. And what a delicious way to savour it: in a fragrant, light dressing with an Asian heritage. To julienne daikon (large Asian radish), cut peeled daikon crosswise into very thin slices, then into matchstick-size strips.

  • Portion size 8 servings

Ingredients

  • 12 oz fresh cooked lobster meat about 2 lobsters
  • 1/2 cup diced avocado
  • 1/2 cup diced mango
  • 1/4 sweet red pepper
  • 1 cup baby greens
  • 1 cup mesclun
  • 2 tablespoons julienned daikon radishes
Dressing:
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh basil
  • 1 small green onion minced
  • 1 teaspoon liquid honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon Asian chili paste
  • 1/2 teaspoon hot pepper sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon grated gingerroot
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil

Method

Dressing: Whisk together juice, soy sauce, basil, onion, honey, chili paste, ginger, salt and pepper. Gradually whisk in oil.

Break lobster meat into chunks, saving any claws for garnish. In bowl, combine lobster, avocado and mango; pour in half of the dressing and toss. Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes. (Make-ahead: Refrigerate lobster mixture and remaining dressing for up to 2 hours.)

Cut red pepper in half crosswise; slice into thin matchstick-size strips. Arrange greens in bottom of each of 8 cocktail glasses. Top each with 1/4 cup (50 mL) lobster mixture. Garnish with red pepper and daikon; drizzle with remaining dressing.
