RECIPE: Lobster Guacamole With Tortilla Chips

In the chips? Add lobster to your guacamole! While lobster salad is also popular in an avocado half (i.e., stuffed avocado), you can add a twist using it atop guacamole. For special occasions, of course.

This recipe is adapted from one sent to us by Dos Caminos restaurant in New York City.

    Preparation

    1. MASH 1 tablespoon of cilantro, 1 teaspoon onion, 1 teaspoon minced chile, and the salt together in a medium-size bowl, using the back of a spoon to mash against the bottom of the bowl.

    2. ADD the chopped lobster to the bowl. Add the avocados and gently mash them with a fork until chunky smooth.

    3. FOLD in the remaining cilantro, onion, and chile. Stir in the tomatoes and lime juice; taste to adjust the seasonings.

    4. GARNISH with the pickled ginger or extra cilantro. Serve with warm corn tortilla chips.
     
     
    TO WARM TORTILLA CHIPS

    1. PREHEAT the oven to 350°F. Line a baking sheet or pan with parchment paper (optional, for easier clean-up).

    2. ADD the tortilla in a single even layer. Heat for 4 to 5 minutes or until the chips are warm.
