I love getting packages in the mail. Especially when it’s from the good brethren of the Sir Kensington camp. Now, if you’re unfamiliar with the Sir Kensington brand, keep in mind they aren’t just another condiment company, rather Rare Spice Merchants. Simply put, these guys make really good ketchup. I mean REALLY GOOD. It’s been nearly a year since we first featured them on the blog, so it was a nice surprise to see what they would have in store for us this time around.
After discovering a fully cooked lobster in my bare refrigerator , I pounced on the idea of whipping up some authentic lobster rolls, for many reasons. First, it was the perfect excuse to twist open a jar of their classic mayonnaise. Secondly, I was hungry, so there’s that too.
Ingredients for the Gentlemen’s Lobster Roll:
1/2 pound cooked lobster meat
2 tablespoons Sir Kensington Gourmet Scooping Classic Mayonnaise
2 New England-style hot dog buns
2 Romaine Lettuce leaves
1 tablespoon butter
Juice of 1/2 lemon
Kosher table salt
Ground black pepper
Mix lobster chunks with mayo, lemon juice, salt and pepper. I personally don’t like to add celery (or anything else for that matter) because I want as much lobster as possible in every bite.
Once it’s mixed, store in fridge for about 5 minutes. Now’s the time to toast/grill the hot dog buns. In a small saucepan, melt butter atop medium heat. Grill each side of the buns until golden-brown (or in my case, almost burnt).
Place a lettuce leaf inside each bun and then layer the cold lobster meat onto the lettuce. Serve with a bag of Cape Cod Waffle Cut Potato Chips and enjoy.
Now what to do with their Chipotle Mayo?…….
