Lobsters Rolls with Garlic Parmesan Fries

Let me begin by stating we do not frequently cook lobster for dinner. Such indulgences are usually saved for a special occasion like a birthday or anniversary. But it seems I have happened upon a new phenomenon. Send your husband to the market for hamburgers and he will return with lobster tails! And better yet, he will cook a fabulous dinner.

I am blessed to have a husband who enjoys cooking. And every once in a while (especially when lobster tails are on sale), he gets a wild hair and creates an amazing meal for us. Sunday was one of those occasions. He recreated one of the best meals I've ever eaten - lobster rolls from Neptune Oyster in Boston, Massachusetts.

I loved that my husband created an "open face" variation of the sandwich. They were out of this world, especially accompanied by some incredible garlic parmesan fries! So please enjoy this meal for a special occasion or just an ordinary Sunday dinner.

Lobster Rolls
serves 4

* 6 lobster tails
* Four slices Shepherd's bread, thickly cut
* 1 stick butter (use a portion for buttering bread, and the remainder for melting)


Fill a large steam pot with water. Bring to a boil, and steam lobster tails for approximately 5-7 minutes, or until tails turn red and meat is cooked through. Remove meat from the tails, and roughly chop, so you have large chunks of lobster. Set aside.

Butter bread on both sides. Toast bread in a skillet over medium heat, until each side is golden brown. Approximately 3-4 minutes per side.

Top toasted bread with chunks of lobster. Drizzle with desired amount of melted butter.

Enjoy as an "open face" sandwich.

Garlic Parmesan Fries

1 bag frozen shoe string french fries
3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
2 tablespoons flat leaf italian parsley, finely chopped


Cook french fries as directed (frying method works best for this recipe). After cooking the fries, toss with garlic, parmesan and parsley. Serve immediately.

  1. I plan to use this recipe for lobster sliders for my next cocktail party. Add your greek turkey burger recipe and, for those unwilling to venture into the unknown - add a beef slider. Know they'll be a hit. Keep the recipes coming. They not only work for a young family with kids but for us empty nesters who have to eat too.
