  • Sprinkle the chopped parsley into it, followed by a dash of cayenne pepper, salt as well as ground black pepper to taste and give them a good stir to mix well.
  • Bring the stew to a rolling boil and then reduce it to a simmer.
  • Cook over moderate heat for 15 minutes or until the potatoes are fork-tender.

  • Heat a splash of extra virgin olive oil in a clean skillet over moderately high flame until it becomes smoking hot and toss the lobster meat pieces into it.
  • Sprinkle a dash each of seasonings over them to taste and sauté for few minutes or until the meat is heated through.
  • Pour in a large bout of sherry to deglaze and tip the contents of the skillet into the simmering stew.
