will be taking you to New England for this seashore classic. The Lobster Roll
is believed to have been invented in the 1920s in Connecticut. It was popularized throughout the 1970s with
roadside stalls selling the acquisition lobsters meat in a hot dog bun
throughout New England.
two basic types are Maine and Connecticut Lobster rolls. The “Maine” lobster roll is served cold with
the lobster mixed with mayonnaise, celery, and tarragon. The Connecticut
version is typically served hot with only melted butter, while the cold version
is referred to as a “Lobster Salad Roll” instead. We will be providing a choice of both.
of type, a true New England-style lobster roll must be served with a bun slit
open on the top with no crust on the sides. Why must the bun sides be
crustless? The better to soak up butter when toasted in the pan. And, we will be providing lobster-infused
butter for the buns.
lobsters are steamed which tends to overcook the meat and imparts no
flavor. As such, we will instead be
poaching the lobsters in a Court Bouillon. A Court
Bouillon, known as a “Quickly Boiled Liquid,” is made by simmering aromatic
vegetables and herbs in water, white wine, vinegar, and/or citrus. This enhances the flavor, especially when
served cold, while keeping the meat tender.
As corn, the traditiaonal accompanyment is not yet in season, we will be offering a side of Wild Morel Mushrooms and fresh English Peas. With the exception of Asparagus, nothing says spring like Morels & Peas!
not traditional, we also will be providing Salicornia, or “Sea Beans,” as
garnish instead of the traditional celery ribbons.. Also referred to as samphire, glasswort,
pickleweed, and sea asparagus, Salicornia have a crisp yet very juicy texture
and distinctly salty, caper-like flavor.
Once referred to by Shakespeare in King Lear, Sea Beans are especially
good served with seafood.
