Summertime Maine Lobster Tails

With the warm weather this Memorial Day weekend the boats are out hauling in lobsters for the summer season. For lobster lovers who do not want to handle live lobster, lobster tails are the right choice for you to throw a Memorial Day lobster party. Add a little zest to your summertime fun with this recipe for lobster tails with balsamic dressing.

Maine Tails Summertime Maine Lobster Tails Ingredients:
4 Lobster Tails from LobsterAnywhere!
Select 6-7 oz. lobster tails, 8-10 oz., 16-20 oz. tails
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
salt and pepper
1/2 tsp. cayenne
1/4 tsp dry mustard
1 tbsp chopped shallots
1 Tbsp. packed light brown sugar

Cut the bottom of the lobster tail shell with kitchen scissors, so they will lie flat. Put in shallow dish. Mix remaining ingredients together and pour over tails. Marinate for at least two hours in the refrigerator, turning a few times. Broil tails, basting with marinade, for 12-15 minutes. Alternatively, you can grill your lobster tails.

The Perfect Lobster Roll

The lobster roll, like chili, is one of the most contentious foods out there; everyone’s got a favorite way to do it. The sandwich goes back to when lobster was plentiful and cheap as a means to use up less-than-perfect lobsters that wouldn’t fetch that high a price on the market. Your itinerary to Maine wold not be complete without a stop at a roadside stand for this New England favorite.

Here’s what to do: Use a hot dog bun, the kind with flat, white sides, because it absorbs the most butter when toasted in a pan. For the lobster salad, think just mayo, or add celery and a shake of salt and pepper. We like Cain’s mayonnaise because it made right here in Massachusetts and does not contain any of those hydrogenated fats. Pack as much into the bun as you possibly can.
