EVOO Poached Lobster Rolls

Why poach in extra virgin olive oil? Poaching in EVOO introduces its own flavors to the lobster, as well as creating a much more tender and luscious lobster than water ever could.

Place the lobster in a large saucepan and cover with olive oil. Add the garlic cloves, lemon peel, rosemary sprig, and thyme sprig to the pan and reheat steadily over medium-low heat.


Cook for 20 minutes, remove from the heat, and set aside to cool to room temperature. Remove some lemon peel from the pot, which is finely minced.


Place celery, mayonnaise, chives, salt, and minced lemon peel in a large bowl and whisk to combine. Using a slotted spoon, remove the lobster meat from the pot and place it in the bowl with the mayonnaise mixture.


Remove 3 – 6 tablespoons of the poaching oil from the pan. Brush hot dog buns with the reserved olive oil and toast in a warm skillet or toaster oven until golden brown.
