Lobstah Salad Roll "Recipe"….
I heard you loud and clear!
Here’s the recipe for Lobstah Salad Rolls a la Prince Charming!
We get our lobster at the grocery store, we live in Central PA, no dock-side lobster markets here!
We wait til they’re on sale and then indulge! One 1 1/2 to 2 pound lobster yields at least 2 generously filled rolls.
We have the store steam them for us…you know me well enough by now to know I’m a “no muss, no fuss” kind of gal! Prince Charming then cracks and opens,etc. He seems to really enjoy that part…go figure!
He also chops the celery and onion…now this you add to your liking. For us it’s about 2 large stalks of celery and a bit less than 1/4 cup of sweet onion per 2 or 3 lobsters.
I forgot to give you the disclaimer at the beginning:
I am not one to follow recipes a whole lot…and I don’t measure many things…so most of my “recipes” are my best guess at how much I used! Now when I’m baking…no, wait! that never happens…never mind!
Ok…so, we’ve got our lobster, our celery and onion diced/chopped very finely, then we add….
UPDATE: Since having to modify my diet for health reasons, I no longer use Miracle Whip or regular mayo. This is what I use instead…..these 2 combined are way yummier & healthier in any summer salad!
Miracle Whip…or mayo for those who prefer or a mixture of the two as we sometimes do. I add this a little at a time and mix it through each time…..Prince Charming is very particular about his lobster salad having just enough to hold it together but not enough that it’s soupy or that you can’t taste the lobster (THAT would be a crime!), add salt and pepper to taste (again, I do this a little at a time, then taste…catch my drift?) a dash of dill (fresh dill if you’ve got it) and two dashes of paprika…optional is a tiny bit of fresh squeezed lemon juice…tiny bit as in cutting off about 2 inches of the end and squeezing it in.
We think it is best to make this up the night before to let all the flavors meld together overnight (in the fridge, of course!)
Tah Dah! you serve the lobster salad on grilled hot dog rolls (better if they are New England style) and fries, our favorites are Ore-Ida Extra Crispy Fast Food Fries (frozen) they cook up under the broiler in about 8 minutes!
We enjoyed ours as a “coffee table picnic”!
Add a fresh garden salad and NON GMO sweet corn on the cob…and you have yourself one heavenly Summer Time Feast!
If you don’t care for lobster….we think you’re nuts…no, not really, I could actually take it or leave myself…but my point is that you can make this same meal without lobster by substituting seafood or crab salad…or even chicken or tuna salad…just a thought!
