Did you ever take a trip to Maine and stop off at a small roadside restaurant to enjoy a world famous Maine lobster roll? If you haven't then you should consider taking a trip there one summer.
But you don't even have to be anywhere near the northeastern part of the United States if you want to enjoy one of these tempting tarragon seasoned taste treats.
Here's a recipe that you can use to make two of these delicious delights to enjoy any time of the year.
If you can procure one or two live lobsters or a half pound of fully cooked lobster meat then you will be good to go.
In order to make these delicious morsels you will have to first prepare the lobster salad. Here's an easy recipe that will get you out of the kitchen and into your backyard to enjoy this symbol of summer in no time at all.
If you're using live lobsters you'll have to boil them or steam them until they are fully cooked. Then let them cool to room temperature.
Next, take a cleaver and remove the lobster meat from the tail, claws and knuckles. Then remove all of the meat from the cartilage. Once the meat is prepared cut it into ½ to ¾ inch pieces. You can pick the rest of the meat from the shell and add it to the mix.
Now, take ½ of a medium sized cucumber. Peel it, seed it, and finely dice it. Add ¼ cup of mayonnaise and ½ tablespoon of fresh tarragon to the diced cucumbers and combine it with the lobster. Thinly slice 2 small scallions and add them to the mix along with either sea salt or Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper to taste.
Cover the lobster salad with plastic wrap and chill it in the refrigerator for a half hour to an hour.
While the lobster salad's chilling you will want to prepare the buns. You can either toast them under a broiler or in a skillet.
If you have a 12" to 14" cast iron pan you can preheat it before placing lightly buttered New England style hot dog buns in it. Cook the rolls until they are golden brown. This should take about two minutes. Then turn them over and cook the other side.
When the buns are done take the lobster salad out of the fridge and stuff it into the hot dog buns.
Put each of the rolls on a plate, add potato chips and pickles, and enjoy.
