  • For the sauce:
    Boil a pot of water and season with an appropriate amount of salt (for cooking peas). Cut the cold butter into small cubes about 2 cm long and put them back in the refrigerator for later use. Add shallot, white wine, and white wine vinegar to a saucepan, boil and reduce to about 1 tablespoon of liquid.
    Step 3
  • Strain the shallots and return the filtered liquid (1 tablespoon) to a clean pot. Reduce heat and add ice-cold butter. Add a small piece at a time and beat with an egg beater until the butter is completely melted and completely blended with the liquid before continuing to add.
    Step 3
  • After adding all the butter pieces, you should get a smooth and thick sauce like below. Squeeze in fresh lemon juice. Taste it, add salt and black pepper to taste.

The grilled lobster is topped with sauce and served with peas (or green beans).
