How to Make Summer Lobster or Shrimp Rolls…

For this recipe, I decided to use frozen Langostino Lobster Tails that are “already pre-cooked” and peeled. 

I found them in the frozen food section at our local supermarket.  The only prep work needed was to thaw and rinse them thoroughly.  And, the rest is easy! 

PERFECT!

I usually make these rolls using fresh shrimp, as my husband prefers.  And, that’s great too. However, it usually requires a little more work: cleaning – deveining – boiling, and then chopping the shrimp.    

But this time,  I decided to make my job easier!  ๐Ÿ™‚

Using the frozen langostino tails instead of fresh, saved me some time, and I didn’t hear a complaint from my peanut gallery – either.

Plus, for additional flavor with these summer lobster or shrimp rolls, I simply grilled the rolls, (or you can toast them in a toaster oven) and added a  slab of butter on each side.  Then filled them with the seafood mixture.

Keep in mind,  these summer lobster or shrimp rolls can be made also with our Easy Italian Shrimp Salad, and with already steamed or boiled lobster, scallops, and crab meat.   

These were super easy to make and they turned out great! 

A win-win!! ๐Ÿ˜‰

 

Here’s a FUN Idea and Tip!  

For a delicious appetizer idea, chill the seafood salad for at least 1 hour.   Then simply fill the buns with the seafood salad mixture.  Cut each bun into halves or even thirds, creating the “mini” buns.  Top with some fresh chives, then serve!  They make a fun size to serve with a large group at any barbecue or party!

Ingredients for Summer Lobster or Shrimp Rolls:

  • 2  (8- ounces) packages of Langostino Lobster Tails-(I used Pier 33 Gourmet)

  • 2 celery stalks – finely chopped

  • 1 to 2 green onions- finely chopped

  • 1/4 cup Italian parsley – finely chopped

  • 2 lemons juiced (about 3 Tbsp.)

  • 1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil

  • 1/8 tsp. garlic powder or 1 garlic minced

  • 1/2 tsp. Iodized or kosher salt

  • 1/4 tsp. black pepper

  • 4 to 6 tsp. butter

  • 4 to 6 bakery hot dog buns

Directions:

1.  Carefully cut bakery buns in half lengthwise, leaving 1/2-inch uncut and set aside.
2.  Thaw langostino lobster tails in cold water for about 10 minutes.  Drain and rinse the tails under running water, and repeat for another 2 to 3 minutes. Drain well.

3.  Chop the lobster tails into smaller pieces. Place them into a bowl and add celery, green onions, and Italian parsley.

 
 
 

4.  Whisk together lemon juice, olive oil, garlic powder (or fresh garlic), salt, and pepper.  Pour the dressing into the bowl and toss to coat.  Chill seafood salad if you are planning to serve it later in the day.

5.  Prepare the Buns: Spread 1 teaspoon of butter inside each bun.  In a non-stick pan or on the grill and toast the buns, place the side of the buns down on low heat for about 1 to 2 minutes, or until golden and toasty, and set aside.  Fill each bun with a seafood mixture, about 2 to 3 tablespoons.  Serve immediately.

    They are langostinos, and if you can find them, mostly in the frozen food sections at supermarkets. I believe langostinos are from Norway.
