From My Kitchen: Lobster Rolls

I’m obsessed with Lobster Rolls. Most people I know are with me on that. My favorite Lobster Roll here in the Big Apple is one served at Rebecca Charles’ Pearl Oyster Bar in the West Village. Simply scrumptious, served with the most amazing shoe string fries. I can’t get enough. During the Covid related closures, we all pretty much stayed inside for about a year, so going for a Lobster Roll wasn’t really in the cards. But the universe has a funny way of giving you what you need, because sure enough I came a across their recipe on social media! I’ve been making them ever since, I absolutely love them. Of course it’s still better at Pearl Oyster Bar, especially with those fries, but it came pretty dang close.

What you’ll need:

Cut the lobster meat into 1/4 inch pieces. Combine the lobster with the mayonnaise, celery, lemon juice, salt and pepper in a medium bowl. Cover and chill until ready to serve. In the meantime melt the butter in a small sauce pan.

Coat the sides and top of the bun with butter, then toast in the oven until golden brown on both sides. Stuff the buns with lobster salad and enjoy!

Bon Appétit!

Hello there, fellow foodies! My name is Erica, I was born and raised in Germany, and moved to the US, New York City to be exact, in July of 1987. I have worked most of my time here in the Big Apple as a bartender, but my true love is food. I cook just about every day, I search for good food everywhere, and pretty much always find it. I don't consider myself a food critic, I don't have the culinary background for that kind of expertise. I do however know good food, good chefs and good restaurants. I report back about my culinary adventures, and I choose to leave out my unsatisfactory experiences. We have enough negativity in our daily lives, I don't want to add to that. All the recipes in my FROM MY KITCHEN and DOTW blogs are cooked and prepared by me. All pictures are taken by me. I don't always eat everything you see in my pictures, but you bet your buns, I do try everything. Last but not least, you should know that I am a huge Top Chef fan. I have never missed an episode of the Bravo TV show. I have at this point visited almost 20 restaurants run by Top Chef contestants, and I'm continuously impressed by their skill, drive and passion. So I will continue to seek them out, and I hope you join me in my journey!
