Lobster & Squid Ink Tortelloni with Yellow Datterini Tomato Sauce & Samphire

A staple sight in coastal Italian restaurants, lobster nevertheless sits at the very top of the table in terms of rich, indulgent tastes. So we're treating the lobster meat with due respect - hand-filling our tortelloni (literally 'big pies' or 'cakes') for a generous, fresh taste. This week, we've gone a step further, infusing the dough of our tortelloni with squid ink, imparting an onyx hue and intensifying the deep, Mediterranean flavour of this show-stopping seafood dish.

The meaty lobster is set off by a traditional Sicilian tomato sauce, matching the saltiness of the seaside with sweet, juicy datterini. These tomatoes are chosen for their rich taste and inviting aroma. Small and elongated like the datteri (dates) they are named after, they are fleshy, yet sweet and juicy. This is a true taste of the Sicilian coastline, with a small handful of samphire (known poetically as asparagi di mare or 'asparagus of the sea') to complete this beautiful dish...
