(8 servings)

2 garlic cloves, unpeeled
1 cup orange juice, reduced from 4 cups
1/4 cup lime juice
1 piece chipotle chile, canned
1 cup olive oil
To taste sugar, salt and pepper
6 cups romaine lettuce, shredded
6 cups iceberg, shredded
1 pound lobster meat, cooked
1/2 cup mango, 1/4-inch dice
3/4 cup cucumber, peeled, seeded, 1/4-inch dice
3/4 cup red bell pepper, seeded, 1/4-inch dice
3/4 cup jícama, peeled, 1/4-inch dice
1/2 cup radish, thinly sliced
1/4 cup green onion, chopped
1/2 cup avocado, 1/2-inch dice
2 Tablespoon cilantro, chopped coarsely
4 lobster claws, cooked, halved lengthwise


For the Vinaigrette:
Place the unpeeled garlic in a dry sauté pan over low heat. Let cook, rotating periodically, until soft all the way through and slightly charred. Peel and smash to a paste. Combine with reduced orange juice, lime juice, and chipotle in a blender. Turn on the machine and slowly add the olive oil to emulsify. Season with salt, pepper, and sugar to taste.

Combine the romaine and iceberg lettuce. Place a mound of greens in the center of each dinner plate. Drizzle with a little of the vinaigrette. Place a line of each ingredient across the top of the lettuce, like a Cobb salad. Garnish with the lobster claw and drizzle with the vinaigrette.
