A while back, Albertson's had a sale on lobster tails for $3.99 apiece. Granted, they were pretty small, but I couldn't pass up that price and purchased three of them. I froze the lobster until I could come up with a good recipe. Not that lobster needs a good recipe. I like lobster plain, grilled or boiled, and dipped in butter sauce or even, mayonnaise.
Which then got me thinking. If I'm perfectly happy with plain lobster and butter, then I might as well keep it simple and make a lobster roll. I'm always tempted to order one when I see it on the menu, but at upwards of $12, I haven't been able to justify spending that much for a sandwich. Even though my version cost the same, I got two lobster rolls for that price. And because lil' sis doesn't like lobster (I know!), she only had one bite and the rest was all for me.
The recipe is really simple. Baked lobster tails lightly sprinkled with salt, tossed in Sriracha butter, served on toasted hot dog buns. So if you love lobster and Sriracha, this recipe showcases both ingredients wonderfully.
Lobster Roll with Sriracha Butter
For two lobster rolls, you'll need:
2 to 3 lobster tails
Dash of salt
2 tblsp butter
1 tblsp or more Huy Fong Foods, Inc. Sriracha
2 hot dog buns
Optional: Chives as a garnish
Grill the lobster tails however you wish. For ease, I broke the shells and pulled the lobster tail meat out. Sprinkle lightly with salt and broil in the toaster oven for about 10 minutes.
While the lobster tails are baking, make the Sriracha butter. In a small pan on medium-low heat, melt about 2 tblsps butter and 1 tblsp or more Sriracha. When the lobster is cooked, put the hot dog buns into the toaster oven.
Then, hand-shred the lobster into roughly 1-inch-sized pieces. Toss the lobster in the Sriracha butter until evenly coated.
Serve on top of the toasted hot dog buns.
Snip some chives on top to garnish if you wish.
