From the Archives: Wicked Good Lobster Rolls

J. Kenji López-Alt Post a comment

A lobster roll consists of chunks of tender, sweet, cooked lobster meat barely napped in a thin coating of mayonnaise, all stuffed into a top-split, white-bread hot dog bun lightly toasted in butter. How do you make the best of such a simple creation? As with many things, it all comes down to attention to detail. Perfect selection and treatment of ingredients, balance, and above all, the ability to restrain yourself from over thinking. It's just a lobster roll, right? More

Cull & Pistol Nails the Classics and Creates Some New Ones

New York J. Kenji López-Alt 4 comments

I'm a big stickler for properly cooked, ultra-fresh seafood at oyster bars like this, to the point where even the tiniest thing out of place can bring down the experience for me. At Cull & Pistol, they hit all of the classics just right, and even create new dishes that seem like they've existed forever. More

Slowly cooking the eggs over low heat ensures that the soft eggs take on the sweet lobster flavor. Making these, at least in my mind, the ideal breakfast when you're looking to spoil someone. More

Jamie Feldmar 13 comments

We love a good cooking hack (or six) around these parts. So when Dan Pashman, the man behind The Sporkful podcast (and noted tortilla chip innovator), and Liza de Guia, the filmmaker behind Food. Curated, got together in Pashman's kitchen for a little dishwasher cooking action, we put down our sandwiches and took notice. More

We Try the McLobster from McDonald's Canada

Fast Food Michael Nusair 8 comments

Lobster from McDonald's just sounds sketchy, doesn't it? When I tweeted my enthusiasm about trying the McLobster, a friend sarcastically replied that I must have a death wish. And I'll admit it: I was skeptical. More

The Food Lab: How To Cook and Shuck a Lobster

The Food Lab J. Kenji López-Alt 35 comments

This week we've already discussed how to buy and store a lobster and tasted soft shell lobsters blind against hard shells (hint: we unanimously preferred soft shells). Now the real question: what's the best way to cook them? Boiling? Steaming? Roasting? And what about killing the sucker before you do it? Should they be boiled alive? Frozen to death? Bludgeoned with a rubber chicken? Let's take a look at all of those questions (except the chicken one, silly). More

The Food Lab Turbo: Cantonese-Style Lobster with Ginger and Scallions

The Food Lab J. Kenji López-Alt 6 comments

I have fond memories of visiting Chinese seafood restaurants in Boston as a kid. We'd pick out a lobster from the live tank, then the crustacean would get scuttled off into the kitchen to meet its maker. When the lobster finally re-emerged, it would come out chopped into large chunks, their surfaces crisp, lacy, and coated in a thin veneer of sauce. Tossed with slivers of ginger and sliced scallions, their primary aroma was sweet and spicy, the briny flavor of the lobsters coming through only once you started eating them. Here's how to make it at home. More

Thai-Style Lobster and Herb Salad with Snap Peas and Salted Cucumber

The Food Lab J. Kenji López-Alt 8 comments

I love me some cold mayo-based lobster salad, but I'll take this lighter, brighter, hotter, altogether-more-exciting version based on Thai flavors any day. Made with sweet, tender chunks of picked lobster meat, crisp blanched snap peas, cucumbers (salted to draw out some of their excess liquid and intensify their mild flavor), it gets off to a good start, but it's really the aromatics and condiments that set this dish apart. More

Taste Test: Hard Versus Soft Shell Lobsters
