Cooking at Home: Lobster Rolls

Restaurant quality made easy!     

New England is known for its seafood, more specifically lobster. Most restaurants in Boston have a lobster roll on the menu. However, a lot of times the flavor of the lobster is overwhelmed by other "filler"components in the lobster roll. James' lobster roll is an out-of-the-box, delicious interpretation of a traditional New England lobster roll!

Lobster Rolls:

     1. Buy fresh lobsters 
     2. Make the boil....remember that if the boil has no flavor the lobsters will have no flavor!
           -Grab the largest pot you have, fill it with water, and let it boil
           -Add a whole onion, a couple of carrots, all spice, crushed red pepper, black pepper, salt, vinegar, and lemons
                   -These are just suggestions for the around with the vegetables and seasoning and create your own                                 flavors....the important thing is that the water be seasoned!
     3. Bring the water to a boil 
     4. Add the lobsters to the boil
     5. After 10 minutes take the lobsters out 
     6. Remove the meat from the lobsters and chill it 
     7. In a large bowl add diced and pealed cucumber pieces, about two tablespoons of mayonnaise, the juice from one whole              lemon, and a dash of salt  
     8. Chop the lobster and mix it with the ingredients in the large bowl 
     9. Toast some New England style buns 
    10. Plate your lobster rolls! 
              -We topped ours with chopped scallions and thai basil (for some peppery flavor)
    11. Enjoy! 

*This recipe makes about a pound of lobster and four lobster rolls*
