{recipe of the week} Real Simple's Lobster Rolls


My first time ever cooking lobster tail.  Its not nearly as scary and intimidating as it sounds.  This was husband approved (and I loved it too.  I don't even like lobster).  The dog got a few table scraps and I do believe he is hooked as well.

Adapted from the July 2013 Issue of Real Simple Magazine.
Serves 4
Cooking Time 20 minutes

{the goods}
4 lobster tails (1 1/2lbs.) thawed
3 Tbl. unsalted butter at room temperature
1 c. fresh corn (about 1 ear)
2 stalks of celery sliced
1/3 c. mayo
1 Tbl. lemon juice
salt and pepper
4 hot dog buns
** 1-2 dashes of cayenne pepper for a little kick

{to cook}
Fill large saucepan with 1 inch of water and fit with steamer basket.  Bring to a simmer.  Place tails in basket, cover, steam until opaque (8-10 minutes).  Remove tails.  Using shears cut straight down the central membrane and pull apart to break tail in half.  Remove meat from shell immediately (to stop cooking) and chop.  Cool.  Heat oven broiler to low.  Butter inside of hot dog buns and place on cookie sheet.  Put in oven and broil until slightly crisp on edges.  (WATCH and don't burn the buns!) This might only take you 5 minutes depending on your broiler.  Take buns out of oven and divide salad between buns.

This is a great leftover recipe for lunch the next day.
