Sequence Step
1Pre-heat grill.
2In a large pot boil about 4 l of water with lots of salt.
3Add one live lobster and cover. Cook for 3 minutes. Remove lobster with tongs and return water to boiling. Add 2nd lobster & cook three minutes and remove with tongs. Place lobsters in bowl with ice to cool down.
4Meanwhile, in a sauce pan add shallots and sweat for a few minutes at medium heat, add cup of white wine, and reduce, stirring occasionally, to about 3 tablespoons, about 15 minutes.
5Crush the saffron threads and add to the sauce. Reduce heat to low and start adding the butter to the sauce, I tablespoon at a time, whisking until thoroughly incorporated before adding next. Add salt and pepper to taste. Keep sauce in a bains-marie.
6Remove lobster from bowl and turn upside down and cut lengthwise from the tip of the tail through the head (you may need to use a poultry sheers to cut the tail portion of the shell). This should give you 4 half lobsters. Remove claws, gills and knuckles.
7Add any coral or tomalley to the sauce.
8Place lobsters shell side down on a medium hot grill and baste with butter and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Place claws, gills and knuckles. Cover grill and cook for about 8-9 minutes or until the meat in the thickest part of the tail turns opaque. Claws, gills and knuckles shell will have turned bright red.
9Before serving stir chopped basil to sauce, serve %BD lobster x person with some claws, gills and knuckles and place the saffron butter sauce on a ramekin to dip lobster pieces.
