Having queued in the notoriously long lines at Neptune Oyster, Boston which I'm sure for those of you who have eaten there will agree is the best Lobster Roll in Boston if not the planet! From the very first bite through the sweet brioche to the chilled meaty lobster covered in mayo it was love at first bite. Served with salty french fries & a crisp glass of Sauvignon Blanc, it was pure perfection.
Living in London, nothing has ever compared, especially when you have dietary restrictions. So what's a girl to do? Create her own version of course. Like I said, living in London, lobster doesn't come cheap so I added crayfish tails to the mix to make it go a bit further, well I did have to feed the husband too! I made the most delicious aioli mayo to complement the succulent seafood and placed it all on a gluten free brioche bun, but you could use Paleo bread if you're being super strict. Top with some crunchy shredded lettuce & diced pickles, dust with paprika & serve with sweet potato fries for the ultimate lobster roll, well the next best thing to Neptune Oyster in my opinion ;)
