Lobster & Caviar Small Bite

by Olga Schafranek |

When I made the Cauliflower Panna Cotta with Select Caviar dish a couple months back, I had a lot of extra boiled cauliflower florets leftover. Not wanting to waste them, I put together a dish that is a twist on our Luxe Signature Bite for our Golden Reserve Caviar. The Signature Bite is vanilla bean butter poached lobster atop cauliflower puree and dolloped with caviar. My dish is less intimidating but no less "luxe" and makes another great small bite for the holidays.
I took the leftover florets, mashed them up, mixed in some breadcrumbs, eggs, salt and pepper to taste, until I could shape the mixture into patties. I set the patties aside in the fridge while I prepared the lobster. At one of my local grocery stores they will actually steam the lobster for you. This is amazing and one of my most favorite things ever. So I had a few lobsters steamed, cleaned them and cut the meat into bite size pieces. I then melted some butter in a saucepan and scraped in some vanilla bean. 
Next, I took the cauliflower patties out of the fridge and pan fried them, making sure they were nice and crispy on both sides. I tossed the lobster pieces in the vanilla butter and topped each patty with the lobster. Then I dolloped with Golden Reserve Caviar and garnished with microgreens for color. 
I love that I salvaged some leftovers and created a fun and decadent dish to share with you.
Order some Golden Reserve Caviar and make these for your next party.
