If you all remember about a year ago I posted a recipe for Lobster Macaroni and Cheese. It was my first attempt at boiling a live lobster.I have never felt so cruel. You see, I don't eat lobster so If I subject myself to that sort of evil... it is all for the sake of my husband. He loves me. So I kill innocent sea creatures for him.
Then it dawned on me. Boiling your own live lobster is totally unnecessary if you want just a cup of cooked meat. They have people who can do that for you... AND remove it from the shells.
I admit I'm not too quick. This time however I was, and I bought some precooked meat to make my husband some "Lobstah Salad"
Lobstah... why is it that we New Englanders feel the need to drop our R and add an H to words? I recently saw the most hilarious funny on facebook. If you are not familiar with the New England vernacular, you may not find as entertaining. When someone from Boston hears.... "I lost my khakis" They think you are saying CAR KEY's instead of a pair of tan pants, because when we pronounce "Car Keys" it's "CAAAH KEYS" Or "KHAKIS"
So I'm going to share my Lobstah Salad Roll with you all, after I find my khakis and paaahk my Caaah.
New England Lobster Salad Roll
4 hot dog buns
2 tbs of butter
1.5-2 cups of cooked lobster meat
3 tbs mayonnaise
the juice of half a lemon
a pinch of cayenne pepper
1 clove of minced garlic
1/4 cup diced celery
3 tbs diced scallions
shredded iceberg lettuce for serving
In a medium bowl mix together lobster, mayo, lemon, cayenne, garlic, celery and scallions. Once combined set aside.
In a medium fry pan over medium heat. Butter the sides of your hot dog bun. It is important to use the kind pictured in my photos. The ones with the flat sides!
Fry each hotdog bun until crisp and golden brown. Place shredded lettuce in the bottom of each bun and top with lobster salad.
