Who watched the Super Bowl? And of all of you, who thought the Falcons had it in the bag? Well shame on you if you did! Because this family jumped on the Patriots Band wagon hard this past week. Dave and I visited New England before Brycey was born and we had such a great time traveling from Massachusets, through New Hampshire and up to Maine. In fact, I planned the trip in September because, according to experts, that is the ideal time to eat Lobster in the area. We made it our goal to have Lobster every day, and I’m pretty sure we made good on that goal. Hopefully we’ll get to bring our boy back and check out the rest of New England in the future! Until then, we are bringing the taste of New England to the South Suburbs of Chicago.
In honor of the Patriots winning the Superbowl I bring you the Lobster Roll. Oh yea, baby. Every bite will taste like sweet, sweet, victory. And, speaking of victory, it’s almost Valentines Day so I bet a bunch of grocery stores will have Lobster at a discounted price over the next few days. If you’re looking for an upscale meets casual dinner for the whole crew look no further. Or, if your short on time (what parent isn’t?) this is your fourth quarter sandwich, folks! Make this for your family and you will easily be the Tom Brady in the bunch. So, let’s get after scoring this kitchen touchdown, shall we?
For whatever reason, before I started really cooking, I just assumed making a Lobster roll would be really hard. Let me tell you, nothing could be farther from the truth! Follow me and I will give you the whole game plan my friend.
- 1 pound cooked lobster meat cut into bite sized chunks
- ⅓ cup mayonnaise
- 2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
- ¼ cup finely chopped celery
- 1 teaspoon chopped fresh parsley
- 2 teaspoons green tops from a scallion, minced fine
- 1 dash Sriracha hot sauce
- Pinch of salt & pepper to taste
- Gluten-Free Hot Dog Buns
- 2 tablespoons melted butter
- In a small bowl combine the mayonnaise, lemon juice, celery, parsley, scallion, sriracha, and salt and pepper. Mix and taste for seasoning. Once you have the seasoning to your liking, add to the cooked lobster meat and mix.
- Brush both sides of rolls with butter and toast both sides in a medium fry pan over medium heat until nicely browned.
- Divide the lobster salad between each roll per your preference. Enjoy!!
