Lobster with a fresh herbs crust and pea puree

I love lobster but only eat it the plain way , freshly cooked with homemade mayonnaise . Unfortunately , i cannot get a hold of a fresh lobster so i have to use a frozen one , which is still OK . This time i decided to serve it a different way , and it was really nice and refreshing . Since i grow my herbs at home i took this opportunity to use them in this recipe . I served this dish with a green pea puree because it one of my favorite side order , it tastes so good and has a lovely bright green colour that compliment well with the lobster.
