Lobster Sliders… need I say more?
C and I were watching Eat St. a couple of weeks back and they featured a food cart that sold these delicious looking lobster rolls… they piled the lobster so high, that customers actually needed forks to eat it. Looked so good.
We’ve never worked with lobster before, so we opted for frozen raw tails, rather than a whole live lobster.
Slightly tweaked from ‘Ed’s Lobster Rolls’ recipe
- lobster meat from 4 tails, cubed
- 2/3 C Mayonnaise
- 1 stalk celery, minced
- Juice from 1/2 lemon
- 1 1/2 tbsp chives, chopped
- Salt + Pepper
- 12 mini ciabatta buns
1) Cook lobster – boil in salted water for 6-8 minutes. De-shell, clean, and cube the meat. (*tip – try to squeeze out any extra water from the meat to prevent the mixture from becoming too watery)
2) Combine mayonnaise, celery, lemon juice, chives, salt + pepper, and lobster chunks. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.
Spread some margarine or butter onto buns and toast till golden. Scoop a good amount of the chilled filling into bun and enjoy.
These slider appetizers were so good, everyone loved them. Easy, fast, delicious.
Full on rolls would have been better, but you’d definitely need more lobster meat (or fewer people!)
