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 boil...play 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*
