This recipe, for home cooks, calls for store-bought ingredients. Although, it may take some time to make, but once you take a bit into the lobster roll and herb salad, you'll know that it was all worth it. Chef Marcus Samuelsson also suggests you pair it with the Penfolds Koonunga Hill Chardonnay for the best flavors.
Blanch the napa cabbage in salted water, then remove from water and pat dry. Set aside.
Combine the miso, mayonnaise, lime juice, sambal oelek, cilantro, and quince in a medium bowl. Add the lobster and tomatoes and toss to mix.
Lay a piece of plastic wrap about 2 inch long on a work surface. Place a napa cabbage leaf in the center of the plastic wrap. Place a line of the lobster mixture—about 2 tbsp—across the lower third of the leaf.
Using the plastic wrap to help you, roll up the cabbage around the filling as tightly as possible into a compact roll. Place on a plate, and repeat with the leaves and filling, to make a total of 4 rolls. Cover and refrigerate.
Whisk the olive oil and lime juice together in a small bowl. Stir in the herbs.
Using a very sharp knife, cut each roll into 2 or 3 pieces. Place on plates.
Arrange the salad next to the rolls, garnish with the optional caviar, and serve.
