lobster rolls, care to share your recipe?
 
i thought i'd find a lobster roll thread on here, but didn't. i bought a nice lobster tail and some beautiful shrimp and i'm making seafood rolls this weekend.

i've made them before and they were delicious, but i pretty much just "winged it" and to be honest, i don't really even remember what i used.

do you have a recipe you'd care to share?

thanks in advance.

The Maine way is a K.I.S.S method. Leave big chunks light coating with mayo on a griddle toasted bun with butter. Dash paprika for color... Done

I like to add some finely chopped celery to this one and sometimes leave the tomato out.

Sandwich, Lobster Rolls
INGREDIENTS:
3 large garlic cloves, lightly crushed
6 Tbs salted butter
4 Maine lobster tails, each about 6 ounces
Kosher salt
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup 1/4-inch-diced plum tomato
2 Tbs minced scallion (white and light green parts only)
2 tsp fresh lemon juice
Hot sauce
2 tsp chopped fresh chervil
4 hot dog buns, sliced vertically from the top
1- 1/3 cups shredded hearts of romaine

PROCEDURE:
1 In a small saucepan over medium-low heat, warm the garlic and butter until the butter melts. Set aside about 2 tablespoons for brushing on the buns.
2 Prepare the grill for direct cooking over medium heat (350 to 450F).
3 Carefully cut the lobster tails in half lengthwise. Season the meat with a little salt and brush some of the garlic butter over the surface of each one. Brush the cooking grates clean. Grill the tails, meat side down, over direct medium heat, with the lid open, until the meat is opaque, 2 to 3 minutes. Turn the tails over, brush with more garlic butter, and continue to grill until the meat is slightly firm, about 3 minutes. Set aside to cool.
4 In a large bowl combine the mayonnaise, tomato, scallion, and lemon juice. Season with salt and hot sauce. Remove the lobster meat from the shells and cut into 1/2-inch pieces. Add the lobster meat to the mayonnaise mixture. For best flavor, chill at least 1 hour. Mix in the chervil just before serving.
5 Using a serrated knife, trim some of the crust from the sides of the buns. Brush the remaining garlic butter on the cut sides (outside only) of the buns and toast over direct medium heat until golden brown on both sides, about 1 minute, turning once.
6 Place 1/3 cup romaine on the bottom of each roll and then top with the lobster mixture. Servings: 4
Preparation time: 25 minutes
Cooking time: 7 minutes

I did a post on grilled lobster rolls a while back:

Honestly, they don't pick up much from the grill, so I tend to just steam or boil the tails most of the time.
As you'll see from the post, a good lobster roll is pretty simple. I use mayo, celery, salt/pepper and a little lemon juice and thats about it. Add just enough to coat the lobster, then serve it on a toasted hot dog bun.

The only way make lobster rolls, any other ingredients are just unnessecary.

This is a great thread for me.
I have to admit, we watch in horror the tv shows where they show all the different ways to make lobster sandwiches and rolls in the USA. Since lobster is a delicious delicate taste, there is just no way you can taste it under all the melted butter, cheese, mayo, aromatics, and to us it looks like a dog with a bad diet has soiled the bread roll!
So, to see these Maine comments is such a relief.:clap2:
I would use salted white vinegar and white pepper, or melt a dash of butter in virgin olive oil and squeeze lemon juice with a dash of the zest over medium low heat and brush the steamed lobster flesh.
So happy to see these K.I.S.S comments, we thought you were all nuts!:wink:

thinking back now, and looking at the picture, that was lobster, shrimp, homemade mayo, green onions and i remember that lemon juice was in there. salt and pepper i'm sure.

i'm going to KISS for sure. if i can just get the mayo right. i've only made it successfully once and it was glorious. the other two times i've tried, i ended up with a tosser and one that ended up more like an aioli.


thanks for all the replies.

Simple, really: Big chunks of lobster, light coating of mayo, 1/2 a lemon, and a stalk or two of finely chopped celery. Buttered and toasted roll. Top with a squirt of lemon juice or some scallion. EXCELLENT
