There's nothing like an oh so delicious New England Lobster Roll. And its easier to make at home than you may think, and a lot less expensive.
We may not be in the northeast anymore but that hasn’t lessened our desire for shellfish. Lisa and I do love shellfish with lobster being high on the list and with that being said you can be sure that my New England Lobster Roll Recipe is always in great demand!
In terms of lobster use not much has changed since my move to Florida except for the quantity I buy at one time since I’ve been shopping more at Restaurant Depot. Now you may not have access to a Restaurant Depot but don’t that let that stop you, just look in the frozen seafood department of your local supermarket, and you just may just find one pound containers of frozen lobster meat.
What you don’t want to use are lobster tails for lobster rolls, that part of the lobster doesn’t work. What you need for a good lobster roll is body and claw meat. It’s got that great lobster flavor, and stays tender and moist which makes a lobster roll a very enjoyable sandwich!
