Have you ever had a croissant bun? Other than the ones we make for La Boulange, you can't find them anywhere, so it's not really a fair question, and this photo is a bit of a tease. A brioche bun, any kind of soft burger bun, or the traditional hot dog roll works well with this sandwich.

Ingredients

For the sandwich

  • 1/3 celery rib
  • 2 sprigs tarragon
  • 1 Teaspoon grated lemon zest, plus 1 teaspoon juice
  • 1 Tablespoon aioli, or mayonnaise
  • 1/4 Cup celery rémoulade (recipe below)
  • 1 croissant bun, or any soft bun, toasted
  • 1/4 Pound cooked lobster

For the celery rémoulade

  • 2 celery roots
  • Juice from 1/2 a lemon
  • 1/2 Cup mayonnaise

Directions

For the sandwich

Finely chop the celery and tarragon leaves. Mix together the celery, lemon zest and juice, tarragon, aioli, and celery rémoulade. Spread the celery mix on the bottom half of the bun, and then add the lobster. Cover it with the top of the bun. 

For the celery rémoulade

Cut the ends off each celery root and peel. Shred both celery roots with a hand grater and transfer to a serving bowl. Combine the lemon juice and mayonnaise. Pour over the celery root and toss. 

Lobster Shopping Tip

Seafood shopping is quite easy in the general sense. Rule of thumb: if it smells fishy, don't buy. Fresh seafood should smell mild and more like the ocean and sea water rather than fish.

Lobster Cooking Tip

Looking for a quick mid-week dinner? Seafood is a safe bet. It's quick to cook and simple recipes can get dinner on the table in 20 minutes.
