As spring begins to settle in, it is time to get fired up in anticipation of all the warmth and sunshine the season can muster – so let’s add a little flare to celebrations, beginning with Cinco de Mayo!
In honor of the holiday, Chef Mac Arrington created this recipe for Chili Maine Lobster Salad Stuffed Avocado – spicing up lobster with fresh peppers, balanced by creamy ripe avocados and tangy yogurt.
Ingredients include 1 ½ cups hand-picked lobster meat, chilled, chopped; 1 mango, peeled, seeded, diced; 1 red onion, diced; 1 jalapeno, seeded, minced; 1 red bell pepper, seeded, diced; 2 tablespoons cilantro, chopped; 1 lime, juiced, zested; ¼ teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes; 1 tablespoon yogurt; 2 avocadoes, halved, seed removed; a pinch of smoked paprika; Cayenne pepper: as needed; salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste.
In a small bowl, combine mango, onion, jalapeno, red pepper, cilantro, lime juice, red pepper flakes and yogurt. Season with salt, freshly ground black pepper and a touch of sugar. Fold in chilled lobster meat.
Halve the avocadoes. Remove the seed and season the flesh with salt, pepper and cayenne. Top each half with a large scoop of lobster salad and top with fresh cilantro leaves and a dash of paprika. Enjoy!
