Not a Maine lobster roll
It only looks like something you'd find in Maine.
Here are the ingredients that I use to make a lobster roll. They are not at all traditional.
I served this to a person with deep New England roots the other day. She was polite, as proper New Englanders are taught to be, but that is all she was.
Want an authentic Maine lobster roll? You came to the wrong place.
Saute a garlic clove or two and some hot pepper in plenty of butter, but not for long, only enough to flavor the butter a bit.
Remove and discard the garlic and pepper.
There's a half pound of cooked lobster meat here, enough for two good sandwiches. Just add the meat to the flavored butter, salt to taste, saute for about a minute, and into the rolls it all goes.
Like I said, you won't find this in Maine. Unless you're headed to my place.
In which case bring along a couple bottles of white, would you.The lobsters I got.
