Ingredients

For the spicy mayonnaise

  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 egg
  • 2 Teaspoons red-wine vinegar
  • 1 Tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 Tablespoon lime juice
  • 1 Tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 2 Cups olive oil
  • 2 Tablespoons Sriracha
  • 1/2 Tablespoon chopped chives
  • 1/2 Tablespoon chopped parsley
  • Salt and pepper, to taste

For the lobster roll

  • 8 long brioche rolls, sliced halfway and toasted
  • 20 Ounces cooked lobster meat
  • 3 Ounces baby arugula
  • 2 tomatoes, thinly sliced
  • 1 orange, peeled and segmented, segments cut in half
  • 1 Tablespoon chopped chives, plus extra for garnish
  • 4 cherry tomatoes, sliced

Directions

For the spicy mayonnaise

In a glass bowl, whisk together the egg yolk and the dry ingredients. Combine the lemon juice and vinegar in a separate bowl then thoroughly whisk half into the yolk mixture. Start whisking briskly, and then start adding the oil a few drops at a time until the liquid seems to thicken and lighten a bit, or starts to emulsify. Start whisking less briskly and increase the oil flow to a constant, albeit thin, stream. Once half of the oil is whisked in, add the rest of the lemon juice mixture.

Continue whisking until all of the oil is incorporated. Add the Sriracha and herbs at the very end. Leave at room temperature for 1-2 hours then refrigerate for up to 1 week.
 

For the lobster roll

Place about 3 slices of the tomato and a small handful of the arugula on the bottom of each roll.

In a medium bowl, mix the lobster, spicy mayonnaise, chives, and the orange segments together, reserving a few of the segments for garnish. Place the mixture in the middle of the roll, top with the remaining orange segments and cherry tomatoes, and sprinkle with chives.
 

Restaurant Shopping Tip

Plan out and shop for a week's worth of dinners. Keep essential oils, spices, and herbs in your pantry at all times.

Restaurant Cooking Tip

Applesauce and plain yogurt are good fat substitutes in most recipes. For maximum texture and flavor, replace no more than half the amount of the fat listed in the recipe.
