Janet selected the recipe this week, and her choice was a Lobster Roll. The only thing that says summer to me is excellent seafood, or more specifically, shellfish.
Shellfish is my favorite food – shrimp, lobster, mussels, and my famous littleneck clam. I’ll eat it all, no matter what form you prepare it in.
This recipe piqued my interest, so I attempted it. I had initially planned to make it with lobster that my husband’s sister and brother-in-law were bringing down from Rhode Island for the 4th of July, and I forgot to do that. I made it with jumbo shrimp earlier this week.
This recipe all boils down to the dressing: mayo, greek yogurt, celery, scallions, lemon juice, salt, and pepper. I liked it. The hubby used a lot more dressing on his sandwich than I did, and he loved it. Some members mentioned it was a bit bland during the comment section, so I added more salt and celery salt. Celery was already in the dressing, so it seemed natural to put it there. The sauce reminded me of coleslaw dressing.
My knowledge of lobster or shrimp rolls is limited, so I don’t know how this compares. Those sandwiches likely contain mayo and sour cream. Additionally, I didn’t serve these on hot dog rolls since I had some baguettes in the house, which I’m sure made a difference in texture.
It wasn’t my favorite recipe, but I still enjoyed it. But what I liked was the rice and lentil salad I made as a result of watching Giada DeLaurentiis. I loved it! Worth trying.
