Lobster Rolls

We do not feel comfortable eating out in a restaurant, be it inside or even outside dining. We will to take away but that is it, for now. The summer in New England means Lobster Rolls. Our favorites are at Abbott's in Noank. Seeing we will not venture out I decided to make them at home. Lobster tails were on sale a the Big Y this week. I had all the other ingredients in the house.

The recipe is from Where they as good as Abbott's? Well they were not bad but it would have been nice to be sitting next to Long Island Sound...

3 (12-oz.) lobster tails, steamed, meat removed and chopped (3 c.)
1/4 c. butter, divided
4 split-top hot dog buns
2 tbsp. freshly chopped chives
Kosher salt
Freshly ground black pepper
Lemon wedges, for serving
To Steam the Lobster- Visit this link for in depth instruction on lobster tails.

Melt 2 tablespoons of butter and brush all over cut sides of hot dog buns. Heat a large skillet on medium heat and add buns, cut side down. (You may have to do this in batches.) Let toast until golden, 1 to 2 minutes.

When buns are toasted, remove from pan and add remaining butter. Reduce heat to low. When butter has melted add lobster and cook, stirring constantly to coat lobster with butter. Remove when lobster is completely coated in butter and warmed through, 3 to 4 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.

Fill toasted buns with lobster and garnish with chives. Serve with lemon wedges on the side for squeezing.

And the side dish. Zucchini Fritters. Yeah fried balls of dough with Zucchini and Shallots. How can that be bad!

And dessert!! Yeah it's the weekend. That Blueberry Crisp I made last night. Wow, really, really good!
The recipe can be found on I told you it was a real thing!
