In from Daisy, our resident foodie: Lobster Rolls.
Lobster Rolls (sandwiches filled with sweet and succulent lobster meat) are most popular in the New England states — especially Maine, Connecticut and Eastern Long Island. There are two ‘schools of thought’ when it comes to serving lobster rolls: warm or cold . . . In Connecticut, lobster rolls are served warm, with just a drizzle of butter. In Maine and in Long Island, mayonnaise is either spread on the inside of the bread or mixed with the lobster by itself and in some cases with diced celery and herbs.
One thing that both sides agree on is the bread – a split top hot dog bun, toasted on both sides in butter! I love eating lobster tails with drawn butter . . . but for lobster rolls, I prefer making the mayo-based lobster “salad.” Don’t overdo it with the herbs and celery . . . let the delicate flavor of the lobster remain the star!
