Fairly Traditional New England Lobster Rolls, a recipe

>> Wednesday, July 21, 2010

Since we enjoyed an obscene amount of lobster on Saturday night, we wound up with a decent container of leftovers on Sunday. I decided that some lobster rolls were in order. This recipe makes 2 hearty sandwiches!

1 cup of fully cooked and cooled lobster meat (fresh is best!)
2 stalks of celery, diced
1/3 cup vidalia onion, diced
1/2 cup Hellman's mayonnaise
juice of 1/2 a lemon
1 TBSP fresh chopped parsley
salt and pepper to taste

Sandwich requirements:

2 rolls (traditional calls for New England style hot dog rolls) I've used two Italian sandwich rolls, sliced down the top and hollowed out.
2 leaves of Romaine lettuce

Rough chop your lobster meat then combine it with the celery and onion. Whisk together the mayonnaise, lemon juice, parsley, salt and pepper. Add the mayonnaise mixture to the lobster and refrigerate while preparing your rolls.

Roll prep:
If you are using the traditional N.E. style hot dog rolls, butter the outsides and grill in a frying pan over medium heat until golden brown (1-2 minutes).

If using larger grinder/sub/hoagie style rolls, slice them down the top- but not in half- and using your finger, pull out some of the bread to create a hollowed center to make room for the filling. Since these rolls are typically crustier on the outside than hot dog rolls, you can't really butter the outsides, but you can still get that buttery yummy taste! Place a 1/2 TBSP of butter into a pan over medium heat and warm the rolls, using tongs to turn them every minute until desired result is achieved.

Line your rolls with a crisp leaf of Romaine lettuce and fill with the lobster salad. Serve immediately.

Drooling...DH is from New England and I love these. Lobster Eggs Benedict is good for lobster leftovers too.

I don't like seafood, but that looks absolutely delicious!

This looks like a fabulous recipe! I spent some time in Maine a few years ago and tried to eat as much lobster as possible- nearly three meals a day!

Looks fabulous- I don't think I've ever had lobster before... I'll have to try it soon!
