Homemade Lobster Roll

Thursday, November 7, 2013

A few months ago, during the peak of summer, my sister came to the city and met me for lunch. We went to Howells & Hood, and I had a lobster roll. I didn't have to go back in the office in the afternoon, the sun was shining, and we were making her 21 in 21 list. Everything seemed perfect, so I decided the lobster roll was also perfect.

Fast forward to yesterday. It was dark and dreary when I left for work in the morning. I was soaked from the rain when I got to my office. My rain boots were wet, heavy, and I had forgotten a change of shoes. It rained all day and was dark when I left. I walked past Howells & Hood on my way home and remembered that perfect, summer lobster roll. I know it's the season for comfort foods, but for a little taste of a better season, I decided to make my own lobster roll, and it didn't disappoint. It's the perfect, simple, hearty sandwich that'll get you through soggy days. 

Ingredients (for one sandwich): 
1/4 pound of cooked lobster meat, roughly chopped (This wasn't easy to find, but I eventually found some, frozen, at Whole Foods. I'm not an imitation lobster or crab fan, so I recommend splurging for the real stuff).
1 scallion (light green and white parts only), chopped 
1 teaspoon mayonnaise
1 squeeze fresh lemon juice
Sprinkle of paprika
Salt to taste
Hot dog bun

Add all ingredients (except bun and butter) in a mixing bowl. Fold together gently. Toast hot dog bun, then spread with a thin layer of butter. Top with lobster salad.
