Shape lobster mixture into 6 equal sized cakes, then lightly dust cakes with flour. Heat olive oil over moderately high heat in a large nonstick skillet. Add lobster cakes to pan, reduce heat to medium and cook for about 2 minutes per side. Mango rhubarb salsa:
In a small saucepan, combine mango, rhubarb and red and yellow peppers. Add rice wine vinegar and brown sugar. Bring to a simmer over low heat and cook for 5 - 7 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in coriander and fresh black pepper.
