McEwan's Lobster Grilled Cheese

Serves 2


1 Live Lobster, about 1 ½ lbs
4 cups Court Bouillon
6 oz. Aged Brie de Meaux, cold
4 slices Focaccia, ¾ inch thick
¼ cup Soft butter
6-8 slices Crisp Pancetta
6 tbsp Garlic Aioli

Bring a large pot of salted water to a vigorous boil, plunge lobster into the pot head first, reduce heat, cover and simmer for 7 minutes. Remove lobster, cool under running cold water and drain. Shell the lobster and reserve the intentionally undercooked meat in the refrigerator.

Bring court bouillon to a bare simmer.

Cut the brie into ¼ inch thick slices thick. Slather one side of the focaccia slices with butter, then line them up, butter side down on a large nonstick skillet on medium-low heat. Cook the lobster in the court bouillon for 60 seconds or until warmed through and then drain it on paper towels. Divide the cheese among the four slices of bread, spacing it evenly. Top two of the slices with a row of 3-4 pancetta slices. Cut the lobster into bite-size pieces and distribute it over the pancetta. Finally, flip the two cheese covered focaccia slices onto the lobster side to complete the sandwiches.

Because of the thickness of the bread, the sandwiches should be flipped frequently, every minute or so. Add more butter to the pan as needed. When both sides of the sandwich are bronzed and the Brie is melting, remove the sandwiches to a cutting board, slice them in half on a diagonal and plate with a ramekin of aioli.
