lobster head and trimmings
Take the lobster head and chop it in small pieces. Now add a drizzle of oil to a hot pan and pan fry the lobster head and trimmings on a high heat till it starts to color. When that has happened add the butter and turn down the heat to a minimum. Then cut the lemongrass fine and add it to the pan as well. Mix it well and then let it marinade on the lowest heat for at least 40 minutes. Mix it every now and then. Once that’s done pass it through a fine sieve that’s lined with a kitchen paper to clarify it.
