Homemade Lobster Rolls 自家製ロブスターロール

Homemade Lobster Rolls by naotakem

Made these Maine style lobster rolls at a friends place as part of a evening of leisurely cooking and drinking wine.
Huge Lobster (7 lbs) 

Bought a huge lobster (7+ lbs) at a seafood merchant close to San Francisco International and steamed it with lemon slices and tarragon leaves. Did not have a pot large enough to steam this beast whole so had to wrench off the arms - no wonder the price per pound was low, the merchant must've wanted to get rid of something this huge.


Even getting the edible off the shell was a bit of a struggle, but managed to get a substantial amount of meat - which I chopped roughly and tossed with black truffle oil, chopped tarragon, lemon zest, and lemon juice, then seasoned with salt and pepper.


Served a generous serving of the seasoned lobster meat on brioche hotdog rolls toasted on a skillet with some butter, added a dash of melted butter, and garnished with a wedge of lemon. Tasted a lot lighter than anticipated. Not surprisingly, disappeared from the plate almost immediately.
