  3. Top with the sliced lobster and spoon on the lime, pink pepper and dill hollandaise to dress.

Warm Green Bean, Fennel and Lobster Salad with Hollandaise 1

A proud partner of RPPSG for many years, Quebec's dairy producers, Les Producteurs de lait du Québec (lafamilledulait) encourage traceability by including their logo "J'aime le beurre" on each medallion. Be inspired by this local recipe because with butter, lobster caught in the Gaspé is much better!

The Quebec wine growers ally with the lobster fishermen of south Gaspésie for a gastronomic and local dinner and suggest: Classique blanc, Domaine St-Jacques
The Classique blanc charms with fine aromas of citrus, apples and a floral note of acacia. A wine to experience with your local lobster!

For a more festive summer touch, try the Domaine St-Jacques Brut, a sparkling rosé. The finesse of its bubbles, its freshness and round mouth make it the perfect partner for a lobster salad.
