Maine’s Lobster Rolls w/homemade Mayonnaise

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.

ingredients

  1. 2 egg yolks
  2. 2 tablespoons of lemon juice
  3. 1/4 teaspoon of salt
  4. 1/4 teaspoon of ground mustard
  5. 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…
