Lobster Rolls!

We’re back home after a week of vacation on Cape Cod!
 
We had a great week with our extended families and once I get through all the photos I’ll post some highlights. I’d say food was a big theme of the week – we made lots of delicious meals and enjoyed them, along with lots of laughs, on the deck of our rented house. On our last night together Mark’s sister and her husband treated us to steak and lobsters and it was the perfect end to a wonderful week. Yesterday, after packing up the rental house, heading home, and then unpacking, we were delighted to remember that we had all the leftover lobster meat and Mark whipped up lobster rolls in no time.
Holy moly!!! — Were they good!!!
(As opposed to the quality of the photos my little point-and-shoot takes – they are not so good. Ugh.)
 
{Thank you Jen & Mike for TWO lobster dinners!}
 
Simple, fresh and delicious. I’d say Mark’s lobster roll might be the best one I’ve ever had….so of course I have to share his recipe with you! This is such a great way to use up leftover lobster – and in fact I prefer it this way to eating lobster freshly steamed. It is truly a treat (especially when you consider a good lobster roll in a restaurant will run you somewhere between $18-$25!)

Mark also sliced tomatoes and topped them with fresh mozzarella, chopped garlic and fresh basil, then drizzled olive oil & balsamic vinegar over them. Divine summer dining!

You never know how much lobster meat you’ll have leftover – so adjust this recipe accordingly.

Mark’s Lobster Rolls

2 cups lobster meat, medium-diced
1-2 tablespoons mayo, to taste
juice of half a lemon
a dash of salt & pepper
a pinch of dried tarragon (don’t overdo this! – it’s the magic ingredient but too much will overpower the lobster)
2 top-split hot dog rolls (we used hamburger rolls – same affect, but the hot dog rolls are traditional lobster roll fare)
butter

Mix the lobster meat, mayo, lemon juice, s&p and tarragon together. Chill until ready to serve.

Butter the rolls and toast in a pan until lightly golden. Fill with lobster salad and serve.

Mmmmmm-mmm – thats all you’ll hear!

Thanks for stopping by!
