lobster-tarragon BLT


Is anyone going to read this post if I type one up? Or will you just glance on by and get right to the photos? I mean when I served this to my hubby and started talking he didn't hear a word I said. He was gone--transfixed to another foodie planet......
OK, I'll make it quick. Living on cape cod there is an abundance of scallops and lobster. One can get quite sick of it. Yes, it does happen. Thankfully lobster and scallops are a very mild but sweet protein with which the pairing possibilities are endless. Remember my lobster salad with spicy adobo-mayo? That was my favorite. I made it with you in mind: you know quick, easy, but really packs a flavor-punch. See I'm always thinking of you; I know you want to cook, your tastebuds are craving some real flavors, textures and such, but some nights you just don't want to do a lot of prepping--you want to eat now. I hear you. A lot of days I do not want to take an hour or more to prep and cook dinner, especially in the heat of the summer, which is coming soon btw. I give you this tasty lobster-tarragon on a BLT. It's so easy to prepare, has a few flavors going on here and will definitely wow your family, friends or guests. I mean it wowed you right? See, then you can do it too.




tarragon-lobster BLT
print recipe

(this recipe is enough for 3 good sized lobster rolls)

1 lb of fresh lobster meat
Couple tablespoons of lemon juice (optional)
2-3 TB Hellmans mayo (you don’t want a lot of mayo)
3 TB fresh tarragon, chopped
Salt & pepper to taste, if needed (I used pepper only)
6-9 Cooked bacon slices (about 2-3 slices per roll)
Sliced tomatoes
Fresh lettuce
3 jumbo rolls, buttered and toasted/grilled

Chop up lobster meat, sprinkle with lemon juice. Set in fridge until ready to use.
In separate bowl mix the mayo, tarragon and pepper. Mix and let it chill in fridge a bit to let the tarragon seep into the mayo (about 20 mins or longer if you can).
Get your buns buttered and grill them till nice and golden brown (I forgot this step this time). You can also toast or fry them if no grill.

When ready to serve, take the lobster chunks and mix them with the tarragon mayo, stir well. Then take toasted bun, fill with lettuce, tomato, bacon, then the lobster salad.
Serve with potato chips or fries.

  4. I always wish I had cherished my NE lobster days more! So good, so fresh, so not as expensive as it is down in SC! I've actually never had a lobster roll or sandwich. I always stuck with plain ole lobster. Maybe I was missing out!

  5. I think I need to move back to New England for some good lobster. Or just move in with you. I'll bake you brownies every day. AND do the dishes. I swear it. You just promise that we can eat lobster-tarragon sandwiches. Um. All the time.

  14. We definitely don't eat lobster a lot, so when it's around, it's a huge treat. Those rolls? Amazing! The tarragon's a nice herb to choose.

  26. Usually I have my lobster naked, LOL, but I do enjoy a good lobster roll and I like how you've jazzed it up!

    I'm a MA girl, and we spend most of our time in Maine, so you can imagine how good the lobsters are! We had scallops for dinner last night baked in panko bread crumbs . . . can you say delicious!

    Just wanted to let you know, I love how you enhanced this sandwich and I'll be trying it soon. So true what you said about getting tired of lobster and scallops! LOL!!!

    I'm your newest Follower, stop by when you have a moment. New friends are always welcome. Plus you can have a slice of my recently posted banana bread!
