It’s that time of year again! And may I say the best time of year…. Lobster season! One of my all-time favorite summer dishes would have to be lobster rolls. The combination of fresh lobster in a creamy dressing, served in a toasted bun is a match made in heaven. The secret to my lobster roll recipe would definitely be in the buns 😉 They’re slowly toasted in butter to give them that extra crisp and added flavor.
Lobster Rolls | Level: Easy | Serves: 2
WHAT YOU WILL NEED
1 Live Lobster (Or 1 Package Frozen Cooked Lobster)
1/4 Cup Mayonnaise
1 Inner Celery Stock (the paler, softer ones)
1/2 Lemon, Squeezed
Chopped Fresh Parsley
Chopped Fresh Chives
1/2 Tsp Salt
2 Hot Dog Buns
1 Tbsp Butter
WHAT TO DO
Drop your live lobster head first into a large pot of boiling water (if you bought frozen cooked lobster instead, skip this step and drain your thawed lobster). Cook for about 8 minutes (for a 1lb lobster). Remove lobster from water and place immediately in a bowl full of ice to cool it down. While the lobster is cooling, prepare your sauce. Mix together the mayo, lemon juice, finely chopped celery, parsley, chives, and salt. Let sit in the fridge while you prepare your lobster. Once lobster is cooled, remove meat from the shells, using only the tail and claws. Chop the lobster meat and mix it into the sauce. Heat 1 tbsp butter in a medium frying pan until melted, and slowly toast each side of the hot dog buns until lightly browned. Once toasted, fill buns with the lobster. Garnish with additional chopped chives or parsley and serve with lemon wedges and fries on the side. Enjoy!
