Fresh steamed lobster combined with a fresh tarragon lemon dressing make these Classic Lobster Rolls a cool, refreshing, and delicious summer sandwich for those hot days you don’t want to cook!
When it’s hot outside, the last thing I want to do is heat up my kitchen by using my stove or oven. I give it as minimal use as possible. So, when lobster went on sale at the grocery store I took advantage and had the store steam them before bringing them home. The hardest part of this job was removing the lobster meat, but it was oh so worth it!
Lobster really is a luxury item in our household and we don’t eat it too often. It’s way too expensive for me to buy on a regular basis, so it’s a real treat when we do get it and I’m more than happy/willing to break all that meat from the shell to have a delicious meal!
I was so excited about getting to eat this Classic Lobster Roll that I completely forgot to take photos of my set up and ingredients! I was pretty grr about it since I just explained how I don’t buy Lobster too often.
I just have to roll with the punches here though, suck it up and just share more photos of the sandwich. You don’t mind though, do you? 🙂
I did manage to remember to take one of the buns toasting on the skillet. I buy split top rolls for sandwiches like this where I want to toast the sides of the roll. This is the only time I used heat in my house for making these Classic Lobster Rolls!
Ok, one last shot, then I promise I will share the recipe. Just looking at the photos makes me wish I had more lobster. I’m sure I’ll buy it again before the summer is over as I’m sure it will go on sale again and I will feel too hot to cook.
