LOBSTER ROLLS

Lobster Rolls

With Valentine’s Day falling on a Saturday this year, most restaurants were offering set menus and reservations were booked weeks in advance. The Fiance and I decided to skip the craziness of the day itself and have a nice dinner in (we did go out on the Friday instead). We picked up a couple of lobsters and made up two tasty lobster rolls. The most difficult part of this recipe was taking apart the lobsters, otherwise it was 5 minutes from prep to table.
