Butter Poached Lobster, Crispy Artichokes, Bay Scallops, Pistachio Puree and Meyer Lemon

I found some fresh mini lobster tails at Fresh Market for $6 each so I thought this would be a great way to make a spectacular dish on a budget.  This costs under $30 feeds two and takes about 45 minutes.

Butter Poached Lobster
1 stick salted butter
1/2 meyer lemon, juiced
4 tablespoons olive oil

In a very small saucepot start all ingredients over low heat.  Once melted add lobster tails in one at a time for about 15 minutes.  Remove and place in a warm oven to keep hot.

Pistachio Puree
1/2 cup of fresh pistachio, blanched and inner skin peeled
1/2 small potato, peeled, diced and blanched
1/2 white onion, diced and blanched
1/2 meyer lemon, juiced
4 tablespoon olive oil

Boil all ingredients until tender.  Puree in a blender with olive oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper.

Sea Scallops
1 cup bay scallops seasoned with salt and pepper and then sauteed on medium high heat for 4 minutes until golden on one side.

Crispy Artichokes
1 package marinated artichokes.  Remove artichokes and rinse in cold water.  Pat dry and sear in a sautee pan with butter and olive oil until golden.

Buon Apetito!!
