Ingredients:

  • Hollandaise sauce:
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 2 tablespoons hot water
  • 1/2 cup clarified butter
  • 2 tablespoons fresh squeezed lemon juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 dash cayenne pepper
  • For the eggs:
  • 2 English muffins, split
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 lobster tails, freshly shucked and sliced in half lengthwise

Instructions:

For the Hollandaise, place all ingredients except the butter in a double boiler and beat vigorously with a wire whip. Gradually add the butter, beating constantly. Cook over hot, not boiling, water, and when sauce thickens remove from heat.

Toast the English muffins until golden brown. In medium-size skillet bring 1 inch of water to a fast simmer. Crack eggs and slip them slowly into water. Cover and cook 3 to 5 minutes. Add the lobster tails during the last minute of cooking. Place English muffins on plate and place a slice of lobster tail on top of each. Carefully remove eggs from water and place one on top of lobster. Spoon hollandaise over and serve, garnished with fresh fruit.
