Sous vide lobster tomato salad over vert

Sous Vide Lobster Tails Recipe

Lobster cooked sous vide is tender and succulent, and this recipe showcases it with a simple tomato and corn salad. I prefer my lobster cooked at 131°F (55°C), but 140°F (60°C) will give you a more traditional texture. For a much softer texture you can drop the temperature lower. I usually serve this with traditional lobster dinner sides of corn on the cob and clam chowder. When I want to be fancy I'll pair it with a simple salad of tomatoes, corn, and avocado.

Serve this with some roasted or stir fried vegetables in a grain bowl.
