Things To Grab

  • Kitchen shears
  • Medium skillet
  • Medium bowl


  1. Use kitchen shears to cut through top of lobster shells. Open shells and carefully pull out the meat. Chop lobster into 1/2-inch pieces and season with salt and black pepper. Heat butter in skillet over medium heat until it begins to bubble. Add lobster to skillet and drizzle with lemon juice. Cook about 3 minutes or until lobster is opaque. Remove lobster from skillet.

  2. Combine beans, mango, shallot, and chiles in a medium bowl for salsa. Stir in agave nectar, cumin, and salt and black pepper, to taste.

    Hyvee Culinary Expert Tip
    Chile peppers contain volatile oils that can burn your skin and eyes. When working with hot peppers, wear protective gloves.
