Maine Lobster Benedict
There are differing accounts as to the origin of Eggs Benedict. In this version, we've substituted Maine Lobster for the Canadian bacon and embellished the English muffins with a bit of baby spinach.
1 large English muffin, split
1 cup fresh baby spinach leaves
Extra-virgin olive oil
Salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
2 tomato slices, cut 1⁄2-in. thick and grilled
11⁄2 lb. Maine lobster, cooked and shelled
2 large eggs, poached
1 cup warm hollandaise sauce
Fresh chives (optional)
1. Griddle and butter muffin halves until golden brown. Wilt spinach in olive oil; season with salt and pepper. Warm lobster meat in melted butter.
2. To assemble, divide spinach on muffin halves; top with grilled tomatoes and
lobster. Arrange poached eggs over lobster and spoon on hollandaise. Garnish with spears of fresh chives.
