How to make
- Step 1
Pickled Red Onion: Pack red onion snugly into 1-cup (250 mL) canning jar with tight-fitting lid. Bring vinegar, 1-1/2 tsp (7 mL) sugar, the coarse salt, peppercorns, mustard seeds and 1/2 cup (125 mL) water to a boil in small saucepan. Carefully pour mixture over red onion; cover with lid and screw on band to seal. Let stand at least 20 minutes. (Make-ahead: Refrigerate for up to 2 weeks.)
- Step 2
Tacos: Meanwhile, stir together fennel, mayonnaise, lemon zest and juice, 1/4 tsp (1 mL) sugar, the salt and pepper in bowl. Stir in 2 tbsp (30 mL) chives. Set aside.
- Step 3
Preheat grill to medium. Oil grill. Arrange lobster skewers, shell side down, on grill. Cook, lid down, 22 to 24 minutes, turning once, until opaque throughout. Remove lobster meat from shells and skewers. Cut each tail into 4 pieces; keep warm.
- Step 4
Grill or pan-fry tortillas over medium-high heat, turning once, until slightly puffed and lightly toasted, 30 seconds to 1 minute. Transfer to serving plates.
- Step 5
Top tortillas with fennel mixture and lobster, dividing evenly. Top each with 1 tbsp (15 mL) drained pickled red onions. Sprinkle with remaining 1 tbsp (15 mL) chives and the potato chips, dividing evenly.
- Try this:
The leftover pickled red onion will keep in your fridge for up to 2 weeks. Use in salads and sandwiches – you can even use the pickling liquid in salad dressings and savoury cocktails.
