Warm Lobster Roll

Easter blessings to all! 

Warm Lobster Rolls
Serves 4

3   1 1/2 pound lobsters
4 New England style hot dog rolls
Melted butter

Bring an extra large stock pot of salted water to a boil.  Add the lobsters once the water has come to a full rolling boil.  Make sure that the lobsters are fully submerged.  Cook uncovered for 11-12 minutes after adding to the pot of boiling water.  Let cool for 5 minutes.  Remove the tail and claw meat from the shells.  Chop the meat into bite size pieces (1-2"). 

Brush the flat outsides of the rolls with melted butter and toast on a griddle pan until lightly browned.  Fill the buttered rolls with the lobster meat.  Serve with melted butter, coleslaw, and French fries.  Enjoy!

2 1/2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 1/2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
1/2 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. pepper
2 tablespoons grated onion

Shred the carrots and cabbage.  Whisk together all of the remaining ingredients.   Combine the shredded cabbage and carrots with the dressing.  Refrigerate for an hour before serving.

  4. Congrats to your wonderful daughter. I know the pulling and the sadness at empty nests... but they come back - and come and go and come and go and it is all more gradual than you think. Then, I remember my own leave-taking. And how excited I was. And I would always return if lobster rolls were waiting. How welcoming to see your hearty CT roll!
