Lobster Rolls

So it’s time to go back to one of our favorite vacation spots for the blog.  As much as we love Maine and the beautiful scenery, we love their cuisine.  One of our favorites is the Lobster Roll

Sweet delicate lobster lightly dressed with mayo, crisp veggies and a touch of Old Bay on a toasted, buttered hot dog roll

I would be remiss if I didn’t include at least one picture of a lighthouse!


Check out some of the other great recipes we’ve recreated from the state of Maine:

Lobster Corn Chowder


So let’s get cooking

We came home with a bunch of steamed whole lobsters so we took three for this recipe


Once removed from the shell, they yielded about 1 pound of lobster meat that we cut up into large chunks


Now depending on where you go, lobster rolls can vary

Some have a mayonnaise base… some are just tossed in browned butter

We are taking a more traditional route with a bit of a Simply Sundays’ flair

We used 1 celery stalk, 2 scallions, 2 tablespoons of fresh parsley, 1/4 cup of mayonnaise and 1 teaspoon of Old Bay seasoning

We don’t want to overpower the delicious lobster meat with too much mayo, so be conservative and taste as you go


Give the celery, scallions and parsley a nice chop


Add them to the lobster


Next up, add in the mayo and Old Bay


Give everybody a gentle mix and place into the refrigerator until your ready to serve (this will allow the flavors to meld)


Now this next step is crucial and separates the good lobster rolls from the okay lobster rolls

It’s the bun!

The hot dog roll has to be a split top and as far as I’m concerned, it needs to be toasted with some butter

So spread some butter on the sides of the roll, get them into a hot pan


And toast them up!


Now fill them with that delicious lobster salad and serve!

We love it when our readers make and share our recipes!
