Lobster is the best food in the world, but not cheap. So it's important to use a lobster roll recipe with ingredients that carry the slightly delicate flavor of lobster, not smother it. Or why bother putting that lovely lobster in a sandwich at all?
Add a simple dressing with old seafood-friends like mayo, lemon and Old Bay seasoning, a little celery for crunch, soft, sourdough rolls, and you have Lobster Rolls even I'll sign off on... 3 times a day.
3 cups cooked lobster meat
1 cup diced celery
3/4 cup mayonnaise
4 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon Old Bay seasoning, or to taste
Pinch of salt, dash of pepper
Soft sandwich rolls (sourdough is great)
3 tablespoons melted butter
Chunky-chop the lobster and dice the celery. Set them aside.
Combine the mayonnaise, lemon juice, Worcestershire sauce, Old Bay seasoning, salt and pepper. Fold in the lobster meat and celery.
Brush the melted butter over the insides of the rolls and lightly toast them under the broiler or on the grill. Spoon the lobster filling into the toasted rolls and serve.
Makes 6 respectable or 4 honkin' sandwiches.Grilled Lobster Tails
