Ingredients

  • 4 Lobster tails
  • 50g salted butter
  • 2 tablespoons plain flour
  • 300ml whole milk
  • 50g grated mature cheddar
  • 50g grated parmesan
  • 50g grated gruyère
  • 50g grated mozzarella
  • A good grating of nutmeg
  • 8 thick slices bloomer
  • 6 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • For pickled cucumber
  • 100ml white wine vinegar
  • 50ml caster sugar
  • 1/2 cucumber, thinly sliced
  • A small bunch of dill, picked

Method

  • To make pickled cucumbers, combine vinegar and sugar in a small pan with 50ml of water. Heat until the sugar has dissolved.

  • Remove the mixture from the heat and let it cool.

  • Once it’s cool, add the cucumber slices, then refrigerate for at least 2 hours.

  • Boil the lobster tails in accordance to package instructions, then cut into chunk-sized pieces.

  • Add the butter to a pan and cook over medium-high heat until it begins to foam. Once the butter has started to emit an aroma, add the flour.

  • Gradually add the milk little by little until a smooth sauce is created. Keep stirring for 5 minutes until the mixture has thickened.

  • Add four kinds of cheese, a good grating of nutmeg, and seasoning to your sauce. Stir over a low flame until completely melted.

  • Gently mix the lobster and cook for a few minutes to warm up. Let it cool slightly.

  • Spread mayonnaise on one side of the two slices of bread. Evenly distribute the lobster and cheese sauce among them.

  • Set an oven to 160°C/140°C/3 flames.

  • Fry the sandwich for 2-3 minutes on each side over medium heat in a large frying pan, in batches if possible, until brown.

  • Transfer the fried sandwiches to a baking sheet and bake them for 5-10 minutes.

  • Drain the pickled cucumber. Add the dill to it.

  • Serving Suggestions: To serve the sandwiches, cut them in two and offer a healthy pile of cucumbers.
