Simmer gently for 30 minutes then filter half of the broth through a coffee filter.

The reduced broth should measure about one cup (250 mL). Stir in 1/20 oz (1.5 g) agar-agar.
Heat on a low boil for 1 or 2 minutes.
Pour into shot glasses; rest these on a slant on small L.R. wood supports and refrigerate.
Reduce remaining half of broth until fairly thick.

Bring to a boil to cook coral.
Thin the blend in the Thermomix with fennel juice; add lecithin or medium-cooked egg and whisk.

Chop half-cooked lobster meat and combine with dressing. Adjust seasoning and add chives. Spoon tartare into glasses, over the jelly.
Cut lobster tails into pieces and set pieces on glass rims.
Spoon coral mousse into inclined glasses.
To garnish, place a tat soy leaf (tat soy is an Oriental vegetable with spoon-shaped leaves) on top of the mousse in the glass. Serve immediately!
