Grilled Sourdough Atlantic Lobster Rolls

lobsterIs there anything more representative of the Maritime lifestyle then a freshly caught, Bay of Fundy Lobster? Cold, salty and juicy..mmm. It’s crazy to think that lobster used to be considered a poor mans meal.

Ingredients:

  • 1 Lobster ( I used one  1 1/2 pound lobster and it was enough for 2 large lobster rolls)
  • 2 large sourdough rolls (or your favorite rolls)
  • 1 celery stalk, thinly sliced
  • 1 scallion, thinly sliced
  • arugula
  • 1/2 a lemon to squeeze for juice
  • 1/3 cup mayo
  • salt n pepper, to taste
  • pinch of garlic powder
  • pinch of fresh dill
  • pinch of old bay seasoning
  • fresh parsley, chopped and sprinkled on top for garnish
  • olive oil

How To:

  1. Get Ready to get messy. Set yourself up to destroy a lobster. I always have a bag to put all my shells in as I go. And you don’t need crackers or pickers, a large strong knife is all you need. If you’ve never taken a part a lobster before, stop and google that shit. It’s second nature to a maritimer. I started with the claws, then tail, then body. When you take the tail off, you get a lot of juice, which I saved in the bowl and poured over the meat for extra flavour. Continue until all meat is out of lobster.
  2. Once all meat is in a bowl, add mayo, scallion, celery and spices. Mix well. Once mixed, squeeze lemon over top of mixture.
  3. Slice open roll and brush with olive oil. Season with salt n pepper.
  4. Place seasoned roll on grill and press down for grill marks, which adds flavour and appeal.
  5. line roll with a hand full of arugula, then spread lobster meat on top.
  6. Add old bay seasoning and fresh chopped parsley over lobster roll for a little extra flavour.
  7. ENJOY!
