simple lobster roll (serves 2)
3 lobster tails
1 celery stalk, diced
1/2 a small shallot, finely chopped
1 tablespoon mayonnaise
1 heaping teaspoon of creme fraiche
1/2 teaspoon dijon mustard
1 teaspoon fresh flat leaf parsley, chopped
1/2 teaspoon chive, minced
pinch of tarragon
squeeze of lemon juice
2 hotdog buns (try and find the kind with a slit on the top)
salt and cracked pepper to taste
1 tablespoon butter
3 small wooden skewers
Other yummy "optional" additions: capers, cornichons, lettuce such as butter or boston bibb
On high heat, heat up a few inches of water and place a steamer basket inside the pot.
stick a skewer through the lobster tails. This prevents it from curling up when steaming.
steam lobster tails for about 7-8 minutes then remove and let them cool.
Take out lobster tail meat. There are several ways to do this . Cut the lobster tail meat into nice big bite size pieces and place in a bowl.
Add all other ingredients and mix together.
Lightly toast the hotdog buns on both sides in butter. Don't get skimpy. Fill each bun with lobster salad mixture and enjoy!
