Great Meal for Warm Weather

The weather here has been extremely hot. We were treated to a great summer meal by our good friends Sylvain and Lianne. They served lobster rolls with potato salad and of course a variety of tasty drinks. The rolls were huge served in small sub like buns. The basic recipe is as follows:

1 tablespoon butter, softened

4  kaiser rolls, split

leaf lettuce
1 1/2 pounds cooked and cubed lobster meat

2 tablespoons mayonnaise

1 teaspoon fresh lime juice

1 dash hot pepper sauce (e.g. Tabasco™)

2 green onions, chopped

1 stalk celery, finely chopped

salt and pepper to taste

fresh basil, parsley or tarragon or any other favourite seasoning
1.Lightly butter the insides of the buns or rolls and line with lettuce leaves. Set aside.

2.In a medium bowl, stir together the mayonnaise, lime juice, hot pepper sauce, salt and pepper until well blended. Mix in the green onion and celery, then lightly mix in the lobster so it just gets coated without falling apart.

3.Stuff the lobster filling into the buns and sprinkle parsley, basil or tarragon lightly over the filling.
These were outstanding rolls and a great treat on a hot summer night. The potato salad was Lianne's and I will have to get the recipe. It was one of the best I have ever had.
On the negative side this supper blew my carb count sky high but was well worth it.
