Cooking with Lobster

Okay, so lobster isn’t exactly a fish, but it’s another type of seafood that many people tend to shy away from cooking with. However, lobster is great not only for special occasions but for working into your everyday meals. Plus, it’s easier to cook with than you might think! Read on to explore a light yet savory lobster dish that’s great for lunch or as a side with dinner.

Savory Lobster Salad

One of the best things about this recipe is that you can have it ready to eat in less than 30 minutes. Plus, it’s so versatile that it can be served on your favorite bread as a sandwich, eaten alone with a little bit of dressing, or even served as a side for dinner.

To make your own lobster salad, you’ll need a few basic ingredients. Specifically, make sure you’ve got about five pounds of cooked, shredded lobster (more or less, depend-ing on how much you want in your salad), diced yellow peppers, celery, onion, mayon-naise, and black pepper. Oh, and since this recipe makes a pretty large serving, make sure you’ve also got a large bowl on hand to mix it all together.

There’s really nothing difficult about this recipe. Simply combine your lobster with three diced peppers, a diced onion, seven to eight diced stalks of celery, and two cups of mayonnaise. Then, sprinkle in about two tablespoons of black ground pepper (feel free to use more or less based on your personal preferences).

Once all the ingredients are nicely combined, place the bowl of lobster salad in your refrigerator for at least an hour before serving. Consider setting out bread slices, crackers, or pita chips as a great lobster salad appetizer or make lobster salad sandwiches. However you serve up this dish, it’ll be sure to be a hit.
