Delicious - Lobster Roll #Recipe

I have had this many times - it is truly one of my favorite sandwiches. A New England, Cape Cod must try for sure, if you have been there you know what I mean.  A lobster roll is some thing that is decadent and should be enjoyed from time to time... They are very easy to make at home with just a few ingredients. Yes lobster is a little pricey but OH So Worth IT!! recipe down below. Now get that big pot out and fill it with water.

The Lobster Roll

6 each
2 oz.
2 each

New England style top cut hotdog rolls
softened butter
celery stalks

  • Wash and dry celery stalks. Using a vegetable peeler, peel celery stalks lengthwise to create long ribbons.  Place Ribbons in ice water and set aside.
  • Trim the crust off four sides of the roll to “square off” the roll. Lightly spread softened butter on the three longer sides including the bottom. 
  • On a griddle on medium heat, toast all buttered sides until golden brown.
  • Fill each roll with lobster salad and place a twisted celery ribbon on top of each stuffed roll. Serve with chips or pretzels.

Lobster Salad
Ingredients for Lobster:
2 each
4 oz.
1 gallon
whole 1 lb. live Maine lobsters
Kosher salt (for cooking water)

Ingredients for Dressing:

1 Cup
1 each
1 tsp.
1 tsp.
1/2 tsp.
1/4 tsp.
1/8 tsp.
juice of 1/2 a lemon
small garlic clove - minced
parsley - chopped
chives - chopped
tarragon - chopped
freshly ground black pepper

Cooking those Lobsters!!

In a medium stock pot bring Kosher salt and water to a heavy boil.
Make an ice bath by filling a large bowl with ice water and set aside. Completely submerge Lobster in boiling water for 10-12 minutes.  Carefully remove from boiling water and place in ice bath until thoroughly chilled. (approx. 10-12 minutes).
Once completely cooled remove meat from the shell and discard shell. Cut lobster meat into small pieces. Set aside.

In a medium bowl mix remaining ingredients well to make the salad dressing.

Use a rubber spatula to gently mix desired amount of dressing into the cut lobster meat being careful to not break up the lobster meat.  Place in refrigerator in sealed container until ready for use.

 thanks and enjoy!!
