Nothing says "summer" like a Maine lobster roll. It is so easy, but super luxurious & special. We had left- over lobster meat from Jediah's mom's birthday feast. It consisted of a slew of Maine clams, Maine lobster & corn on the cob. So continuing the feast, Jediah made lobster rolls for dinner. Perfect.
Either you can buy a lobster or two & add them to boiling water for 3-4 minutes until the lobster shell turns pink. Then remove the meat. You can also buy already cooked/shelled lobster meat from your local fish market.
Maine lobster rolls.
2 cups cooked Maine lobster, chopped
3-4 TBL Vegenaise or your favorite mayonnaise
6 basil leaves, thinly sliced
1 tsp Dijon or grainy mustard
sea salt & cracked pepper
sweet paprika for garnishing
- Mixed everything but the paprika together in a bowl.
olive oil or butter
- Toast in a cast iron pan over medium heat until golden on each side.
- Fill the rolls with the lobster meat & sprinkle with paprika (you can use a small sifter or like, me, a mesh tea steeper/infuser).
Serve with homemade coleslaw & either a crisp Maine beer or vodka/seltzer...something summery, right?!
happy eatings & cheers!
