Ingredients

  • 15 ml (1 tbsp) olive oil
  • 1.3 L (5 ½ cups) fresh spinach
  • 30 ml (2 tbsp) white vinegar
  • 6 large eggs
  • 250 ml (1 cup) unsalted butter

  • The meat from 2 lobsters (about 1 ¼ lb each), cooked and peeled

Gently slide the eggs into the water, one at a time. Cook for 3 minutes. Remove from water with a slotted spoon and place on absorbent paper. Set aside.

Hollandaise sauce

Melt the butter in a small saucepan. Remove from heat, but make sure the butter stays hot so it can be incorporate.
Add the remaining 2 eggs, juice of ½ a lemon, and a pinch of salt to a blender. Mix on high speed for 30 to 45 seconds, until the mixture is pale and slightly foamy. Without stopping the blender, trickle in about half of the still hot melted butter and wait 30 to 45 seconds. Still without stopping the blender, trickle in the rest of the melted butter and wait 30 to 45 seconds. Set the hollandaise sauce aside.
