Easy and Expert Recipes For Lobster Rolls

Lobster Rolls Two Ways — Beginner and Expert

Lobster rolls might just be the world's most ideal on-the-go treat: they're highbrow yet informal, portable yet palatable, and, like all shore food, pair perfectly with a balmy breeze. For my next outdoor meal — likely to be a picnic at a Summer concert —I'll surprise everyone with these simple yet stunning sandwiches. If I have the time, I'd love to steam live lobster myself and make my own mayonnaise for the freshest roll in town — but if I don't have the bandwidth, I'll still wow the crowd, using pre-cooked lobster meat and fresh hot dog buns.

Expert Recipe For Lobster Rolls

Ingredients

  1. Homemade Mayonnaise:
  2. 1 large egg, room temperature
  3. Salt
  4. 1/4 cup canola or vegetable oil
  5. 1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  6. Juice of 1/2 lemon
  7. Lobster Rolls:
  8. 2 one-and-a-half-pound live lobsters
  9. 1 tablespoon snipped chives
  10. 1 tablespoon chopped fresh tarragon
  11. 2 tablespoons Homemade Mayonnaise
  12. 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  13. Freshly ground black pepper
  14. 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  15. 1 bunch arugula

Directions

  1. Make homemade mayonnaise: Wrap the outside and bottom of a 1-quart bowl in a damp towel to secure it in place on the work surface. Combine egg and salt with a large balloon whisk, mixing until foamy and pale. Whisking constantly, add oils a few drops at a time, and then in a steady stream as the mixture emulsifies. Add lemon juice; blend briefly. Add additional salt and lemon juice to taste. Makes 1 cup. Store, tightly covered, in the refrigerator for up to 7 days.
  2. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Plunge lobsters in headfirst. Allow water to return to a simmer, and cook for 5 minutes. Remove pot from heat. Leave lobsters in hot water for 3 more minutes. Remove lobsters, and let cool. Split lobsters lengthwise, and crack claws, allowing water to drain. Remove meat from shells, and cut into large chunks.
  3. In a small bowl, combine herbs with mayonnaise, lemon juice, and pepper to taste. Add lobster meat, and mix well.
  4. Brush insides of buns with melted butter. Grill or broil until brown and crisp.
  5. To assemble lobster rolls, line each bun with arugula, and top with lobster salad.
