Steamed lobster elevates any meal beyond every day, but for a more contemporary take, we've skipped the butter sauce in favour of a mayo-based lobster roll that's topped with pickled veggies. The end result? A more casual meal inspired by Vietnamese street food. Sprinkle with additional chopped fresh cilantro, if desired.

  • Prep time 20 minutes
  • Total time 30 minutes

Ingredients

  • 3 radishes , thinly sliced
  • Half small carrots , cut in matchsticks
  • Quarter English cucumber , cut in matchsticks
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons white vinegar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup light mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro or fresh mint
  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened desiccated coconut
  • 1 teaspoon fish sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon Asian chili sauce (such as sriracha)
  • 1 lobster (565 to 680 g), cooked, shelled and chopped
  • 2 crusty sandwich rolls

Method

Place carrot, cucumber and radishes in bowl. In small microwaveable bowl, stir together sugar, vinegar and salt. Microwave on high for 30 seconds. Pour over veggies; toss to coat. Refrigerate until chilled, about 15 minutes.

Meanwhile, in bowl, stir together mayonnaise, cilantro, coconut, fish sauce and chili sauce; gently fold in lobster.

Halve sandwich rolls lengthwise almost but not all the way through. Spoon lobster mixture into rolls; top with half of the pickled vegetables. Halve lobster rolls crosswise on the diagonal. Serve with remaining pickled vegetables on the side.

Makes 2 to 4 servings.
