- Portion size 12 servings
- Credits : Canadian Living Magazine: July 2009
- 2 lobsters (about 1 lb/500 g each)
- 1/2 cup mayonnaise
- 2 teaspoons granulated sugar
- 1 teaspoon lemon juice
- 1/4 teaspoon dried summer savory
- 1/4 teaspoon dry mustard
- 1 dash hot pepper sauce
- 1 pinch salt
- 1 pinch pepper
- 1 rib celery finely diced
- 1 sweet green pepper finely diced
- 4 buns (such as sausage or hotdog)
MethodFill large pot with enough salted water (1 tbsp/15 mL salt per 4 cups/1 L water) to cover lobsters; bring to full rolling boil. Grasp back of each lobster; plunge headfirst into water. Cover and return to boil.
Reduce to simmer; cook until lobsters are bright red and small legs come away easily when twisted and pulled, about 10 minutes. Remove from water; let cool.
Remove lobster meat from shells. Chop into bite-size pieces; set aside.
Meanwhile, in large bowl, whisk together mayonnaise, sugar, lemon juice, savory, mustard, hot pepper sauce, salt and pepper. Stir in green pepper, celery and lobster meat. (Make-ahead: Cover and refrigerate for up to 8 hours.)
Spoon into buns; cut each sandwich into thirds.
