Butter Poached Lobster with Tomatoes and Basil
Serves 2

Adapted from Steamy Kitchen

4 lobster claws or one whole lobster, about 1.5 pounds
1 stick butter
2 large tomatoes, cut into wedges
1/2 cup basil, chiffonade
Salt and pepper, to taste

Steam or boil the lobster for 3-5 minutes, then remove and let cool until you can handle it. Remove tail and claw meat and discard shell. Cut lobster meat into large chunks and set aside. Heat butter to just barely bubbling over medium heat in a large saucepan. Add lobster, tomatoes and basil, and poach for about 5 minutes, turning lobster pieces occasionally.
