One important thing, the chef advises that the time between killing and cooking the animal must be a short as possible to keep the quality of the flesh. For the salad, the Lobster is cooked in a charcoal oven during 3 minutes at 300 degrees. At very fast and powerful cooking “to keep all the juice inside”.
