Chipotle Lobster Roll

Lobster Roll Recipe

A few weeks ago I decided to reach out to marketing at the Tasting Table in hopes they would let me attend their Lobster Rumble event where I can eat almost every Lobster roll in the city of Los Angeles and write about it on my blog. To my utter excitement and joy, they obliged and now I’m heading to their event this Thursday. If you haven’t gotten your tickets, do it, NOW! I’d love to see some friendly faces over there!

In honor of this event I decided to create a lobster roll recipe of my own, and if you know me you know I love Mexican food (I also used to wait tables at a Mexican restaurant) so I decided to incorporate some traditionally (at least American-mexican) Mexican flavors into this roll of mine.

Chipotle, for one, because it is my favorite seasoning aside from smoked paprika. Which they taste a lot alike except chipotle is a little spicy, cilantro and lime. I also included a cilantro lime coleslaw because…why not!

So I started with 8 oz of lobster tails – which was 2 that I got from Vons for only $7.99 a piece! This is definitely a meal for one, and I only ended up using one half of the roll you see above. Next time I’ll make sure to buy more, but this is my first time cooking a lobster roll so…we live and we learn!

I also decided to quarter my lemon and lime rather than cut them in half like you see in the photo, because once I realized how little lobster I had I didn’t want the mixture to be too runny. I also reduced my mayo size by mixing in 1 teaspoon at a time. Make sure you’re tasting as you go. That’s the best advice to give because you may like something a little less spicy, a little more salty…etc etc. Food is all about preference!

I added all of my ingredients to the bowl and mixed. Tasting as I went along and added flavors here and there. The chipotle just gives it SO much flavor.

Next time, I’ll also use a whole lobster because I LOVE the red coloring that comes out of the claws. I got a little red in there but it was masked by the mayo! I cooked the lobster tails for 8 minutes, but feel I could’ve left them in the boiling water for just a tad bit longer.

I also added my cilantro lime coleslaw to the mix, and I’m glad I did because it was delicious!

This recipe is probably one of my favorites EVER. Make sure to get that bread roll toasted reaaaaaal good so it’s a little crisp. It adds a ton of flavor to the roll but doesn’t cover up that succulent lobster taste. Try this recipe please, you will NOT regret it. I promise it’s so worth the price.

AND of course, get your ticket to the Tasting Table’s Lobster Rumble Event. You won’t regret that either! Hope to see you there!

  1. Hi! I know this is sort of off-topic but I had to ask.
    Does building a well-established blog such as yours require a lot of work?

    I am brand new to writing a blog however I do write in my journal daily.
    I’d like to start a blog so I can easily share my experience and feelings online.

    The website taste is ideal, the articles is truly excellent : D.

  3. In the awesome scheme of things you’ll get a B- just for effort. Exactly where you actually lost everybody ended up being on all the details. As it is said, the devil is in the details… And that could not be much more accurate right here. Having said that, allow me reveal to you what did give good results. Your text is actually really engaging and this is possibly why I am taking the effort in order to opine. I do not really make it a regular habit of doing that. Secondly, whilst I can easily notice the jumps in logic you make, I am not confident of how you seem to unite the details that make the actual final result. For now I will, no doubt subscribe to your point however hope in the near future you actually connect the dots much better.
