Let’s start off with some confession time.
Confession: I have never had a lobster roll.
Now that I’ve got that off my chest we can proceed.
Lobster roll’s aren’t something you see in a small prairie city like Saskatoon, like AT ALL. Of course, having watched more then enough Diners, Drive-Ins & Dives on the Food Network, I have seen and drooled over a lobster roll or two (or ten?)! Feeling rather deprived, while also having leftover lobster in my fridge, I knew it was time to change my sad lobster roll-less existence. It was simple, easy and delicious. I only hope I can taste a fresh Maine lobster roll one day to know true bliss!
- 1 thick slice of french bread
- ¼ cup chopped lobster meat
- 1 tbsp mayonnaise
- 1 tsp chopped green onion
- 1 tbsp chopped celery
- 3 cherry tomatoes (quartered)
- a few drops of lemon juice (to taste)
- salt & pepper to taste
- romaine lettuce
- Get pan on medium heat.
- Cut a thick slice of french bread (about an inch and a half thick), then cut ¾ down the middle of the slice, forming a bun.
- Generously butter the outside of of bread, frying both side in the pan until golden brown.
- In a bowl mix lobster, mayo, green onion, celery and tomatoes. Add in lemon juice, salt & pepper to taste.
- Place leaf of romaine lettuce in the center of your roll.
- Place lobster filling into your bread and enjoy!
I was very happy with this! The flavours were fresh, and there was some great texture coming from the celery, bread, and lobster! For the rare moments I have leftover lobster I will definitely be doing another lobster roll!
For those who have had a “real” lobster roll, let me know what it was like in the comments!
