InSide-Out Lobster Roll
I grew up in New England and every Summer my family and I would vacation in Maine.
My dad would always stop at these little lobster houses and get lobster rolls and I -
would always be a tad jealous? Why you ask? Well, I don't eat any food that has Mayo
in it. I never have and never will. So, as an adult..You have to be creative and find cool
ways to eat one of my most beloved foods, LOBSTER. This meal could not be any
simpler and it's very impressive.
Lobster Roll Deconstructed
2 lobsters (1 1/2 pounds each) or 4 lobster tails
4 tablespoons butter
1 lemon, juiced
1/2 loaf of brioche
1) Steam lobsters in a large pot, covered, for 14 minutes. Transfer to plate and let cool.
Remove meat from shells. Whisk 2 tablespoons melted butter with lemon juice. Toss
in the meat. Cut the bread into 1 inch cubes, crusts removed. Melt 2 tablespoons
butter in a medium skillet. Toast bread until golden. Toss with sea salt. Divide on
meat and bread on 2 plates. Serve with lemon wedges and garnish with tarragon.
