How to Make Your Own Lobster Roll
In January of this year my grandmother, Margaret Berkeley O'Leary, passed away at the venerable age of 100. As per my wont, I've been processing my grief for my grandmother through food and cooking, remembering and recreating the dishes she enjoyed. Gramma particularly loved lobster rolls (the main course at her last birthday party), so when I got a craving for one last week I decided to make my own rather than take the easy way out and go to Mainely Sandwiches.
Making your own lobster roll at home can be more or less time-consuming depending on whether you boil your own lobster or wimp out like I did and buy some surprisingly affordable pre-cooked lobsters from Kroger.
In either case, what is most important is to extract as much meat as possible from the craggy shells of the crustacean.
