Ingredients

Four 6-ounce lobster tails

1 cup panko breadcrumbs

1/2 cup all-purpose flour

Salt and pepper

1 large egg, beaten

1/2 cup white wine

1 shallot diced

1/4 cup chicken stock

2 ounces key lime juice

1 stick (8 tablespoons) unsalted butter, cold and cut into cubes

1/4 cup clarified butter

Directions

  1. Remove the meat of the lobster tails, making sure to keep them intact. One by one, pound the tails thin: Cover the top and bottom with plastic wrap, place on a hard surface and use a smooth mallet to gradually pound the tail to less than 1 inch thick and uniform. Repeat with each tail.
  2. Place the panko and flour and in separate shallow dishes. Season the flour with salt and pepper. Place the egg in another dish. Place the dishes in the order of egg, flour and panko. Take a lobster tail and rinse with the egg, letting the excess drip off before placing it in the flour, lightly coating both sides. Finally press the lobster into the panko, pressing on both sides to coat evenly. Set aside and repeat with the remaining tails.
  3. Reduce the wine and shallots to one-fourth in a medium saucepan over medium high-heat. Add the chicken stock and reduce by half. Add the key lime juice and bring to a simmer. Reduce the heat to low and slowly whisk in the cold butter. Check for seasoning and keep warm.
  4. Heat the clarified butter in a medium-to-large skillet over medium heat. Sear the lobster tails until golden brown, about 3 minutes per side (these can be done in batches). Be careful not to overcook: the lobster is done when it begins to become firm to the touch.
  5. Serve with the sauce and enjoy.
