Today's Foodie File has basically nothing to do with cooking technique and everything to do with flavor combinations. I wanted a really fresh, summery salad the other day and the idea of mixing lobster, avocado and grapefruit sounded so appealing. I'm happy to report it was a killer combo. The grapefruit and avocado were especially complimentary...they're officially on my radar as a dynamic duo. Hope this brings a little relief to your sweltering week!
2 avocados, sliced
8 oz langostino lobster tails
1 1/2 lemons
1 TBS extra virgin olive oil
1 small shallot, diced
Salt and pepper to taste
Slice and separate grapefruit segments, removing the white film as you go.
Juice one lemon and mix into oil. Add shallots to lemon-oil mix and set aside.
Squeeze remaining half lemon over langostino lobster tails and season with salt and pepper.
Toss all ingredients and serve.
