For the Marie Rose Sauce

  • 110g Tomato ketchup
  • 100g Mayonnaise
  • tsp Cayenne pepper
  • 12 drops Worcestershire sauce
  • 10g Lemon juice
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 5g vanilla paste

To Finish

  • 2 x 500g lobsters live
  • 160g Cocktail sauce
  • 1 Avocado
  • 4 Heads little gem lettuce
  • 20g Extra Virgin Olive oil
  • Lemon juice


For the Sauce
Combine the tomato ketchup, mayonnaise, cayenne pepper, Worcestershire sauce and lemon juice in a bowl. Add the vanilla paste and season with salt and pepper. Mix thoroughly.

For the Lobster
To humanely kill the lobster you will need to drive a knife quickly and smoothly through the top of the head. This will instantly kill it. Remove claws and tails. Bring a pan of water with 10g of salt to every litre to the boil. Have a container of ice water ready. Drop the lobster claws and tails into the boiling water for 2 minutes, remove and plunge into the ice water. Once chilled remove meat from claws and tails, leaving as whole as possible. Chargrill the lobster pieces on a preheated FURNACE barbeque making sure to get char marks on all sides and cooked through.

To Serve
Peel and de-stone the avocado and chop into medium dices. Shred some little gem lettuce. Chop the lobster into pieces and coat in the cocktail sauce. Dress salad leaves with olive oil and lemon juice and sea salt. Build the salads into 4 glass bowls. Place the lobster on top and finish with a little extra sauce.

Best gift ever!

My family knows how much I adore having loved ones around and cooking up a storm - so they know just what to get me when I was given the 4K! So sleek and intricately designed, the quality is ridiculously good.

Dad absolutely loves his new 4K

After doing my research I decided to buy the 4K as Dad’s fiftieth present. Let’s just say he is truly in love. I can only speak from my experience, but the quality of food created from this barbeque is like no other.
