What are some good accompaniments for Lobster Newburg?

I'm planning to serve it over puff pastry with a crisp arugula salad. What else?

Thanks for your help!

      1. +1, sounds delish!

        I like the crisp pastry and salad. Sometimes, simple is perfect.

        1. Perhaps a starter of roasted aparagus with a poached (or sous vide-ified) egg on top? Shavings of parm shards, and a balsamic glaze drizzle?

          Seems like it would play up the decadence factor, while still being fresh, simple, and clean.

            Sounds like a yummy start. I did poached eggs for top of a salad last night, and broke each raw egg into a big spoon with holes and let the watery bits of white drain through. Great egg with a little bit of white...great for me because I don't like white particularly.

              i was thinking asparagus also, but steamed, then pureed into soup with some light chicken stock, lemon zest and either butter or olive oil for mouthfeel. no cream, too heavy. if really going for it, a poached quail egg as garnish with a bit of caviar over that.

            2. I think of nice simple buttered peas. If you don't want a totally separate side, peas actually go really nicely in salads.
