when you have a house, there’s always circulars at your door…something i’m starting to get used to since moving to the burbs. it usually go straight to the recycling bin but this weekend i decided to see what’s on sale. $5.99/lb live lobsters at shop rite!!! my eyes lite up…LOBSTERS on SALE!!! since we didn’t get to go to Maine this year, i have a craving for lobster rolls…it’s not as good as Red’s but it’s close to it =P
after seeing martha making her own mayonnaise, it looks pretty easy and i had all the ingredients so y not =P i never liked commercial mayonnaise to begin with.
- 2 egg yolks
- 2 tablespoons of lemon juice
- 1/4 teaspoon of salt
- 1/4 teaspoon of ground mustard
- 1 cup of oil
this is when a hand whisk came in handy. whisk egg, salt, mustard, and lemon juice until smooth. start adding a drops of oil into the mixture until it’s combined. continue adding slowly until it emulsifies.
refrigerate…it’s not as thick as commercial mayo…n it tastes very fresh n tangy
steam lobsters…we had 3 one pounders
deshell, tear into bite sizes, lightly toss with 2 teaspoons of mayonnaise, salt n pepper to taste
grill new england style buns with butter n load with lobsters…accompany with fries…i like my lobsters w/very light mayo…it shouldn’t be swimming in it
sammy made his own version with more mayonnaise n some cucumbers…
total cost of the meal $30…
total prep time spent 1hr….
total consumption time 5mins…
