Lobster rolls are a New England speciality, in fact, a delicacy. In our extra virgin olive oil poached lobster rolls, we aim to infuse as much flavor as possible into these sandwiches. That flavor infusion happens during the poaching stage, using EVOO instead of water and other aromatics like garlic, herbs, and lemon.
Why poach in extra virgin olive oil? Poaching in EVOO introduces its own flavors to the lobster, creating a much more tender and luscious lobster than water ever could. In our poaching liquid, we used garlic cloves, lemon peel, rosemary sprigs, and thyme sprigs to enhance these sandwiches.
