Bite's Lobster Burger

The Dublin restaurant celebrates the gorgeous local lobster, and this recipe is a winner!


  • ciabatta roll
  • 0.50 cooked lobster (shelled)
  • baby gem lettuce leaves
  • crispy red onion rings
  • pickled cucumber
  • vine tomatoes
  • crispy pancetta
  • raclette cheese
  • truffle oil or truffle mayonnaise
  • samphire mayonnaise:
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 150 ml olive oil
  • 150 ml sunflower oil
  • 1 cup samphire
  • lemon juice, to taste
  • sugar, salt and pepper (to taste)


  1. To make the mayonnaise, put the egg yolks into a small bowl with a pinch of salt. Beat well with a whisk, electric beater or food processor.. Mix the oils, and drizzle a tiny stream of oil into the egg yolks, about 20 drops every 5 seconds, beating continuously. The mixture should expand and look thick and creamy.
  2. The secret is to drizzle in the oil slowly and beat constantly. Blanch the samphire in boiling water for a minute, purée and add the the mayonnaise. Season to taste with lemon juice, salt, sugar and pepper.
  3. To heat up the cooked lobster, drizzle over some melted butter and place a slice of raclette cheese on top. Grill very briefly until cheese has melted.
  4. To assemble the burger start with half the bun and stack up the lettuce, tomato, pickled cucumber, and lobster. Top with crispy pancetta and onion rings. Drizzle over a little truffle oil or mayonnaise.
