So it’s time to go back to our vacation spot for the blog
I would be remiss if I didn’t include at least one picture of a lighthouse!
Now we have already discovered a great recipe here
But I think it is time for some more seafood inspiration from our trip to
A major staple in all of New England is lobster rolls
You can get a lobster roll anywhere… believe it or not, even at a McDonalds!
So when I say anywhere, I mean anywhere!
So let’s talk lobster
We came home with a bunch of steamed whole lobsters so we took three for this recipe
Once removed from the shell yielded about 1 pound of lobster meat that we cut up
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!
