What's for Dinner? Wednesday

Happy What's for Dinner? Wednesday! I have a very special, very delicious recipe to share with you today. As a former New Englander, I have always loved lobster rolls.  However, have never really liked mayonnaise.  While going through some old Shape* magazines I found this gem of a Healthy Lobster Roll recipe that I had to try.  It came out wonderfully! None of the taste of the lobster was hidden by any icky mayo.  To make four of your own, grab the ingredients below:

Ingredients for 4 Lobster Rolls:
  •  One 2 lb, Lobster pre-steamed
  •  1 stalk of celery, minced
  •  1 tbsp shallot, minced
  •  1 tsp olive oil
  •  1/2 tsp fresh lemon juice
  •  1 tbsp butter, softened
  •  4 hot dog buns

Step One:  Remove the meat from your pre-steamed lobster.  You'll need a cracker and pick and some patience, but trust me, it'll be worth it! 

Step Two:  Prepare your bun's filling.  Chop up your newly earned lobster meat and mix it in a bowl with your celery, shallot, olive oil, and lemon juice

Step Three:  Heat a pan over medium heat.  Spread your very minimal amount of butter on the outside of your buns and toast them for 1 minute on each side so that they achieve a nice golden brown color.

Step Four:  Stuff your browned buns with your lobster filling and get ready to enjoy a New England classic as it was meant to be enjoyed-fresh fresh fresh!
