Grilled Lobster Sandwich

You will need:

2 10-to 12 ounce lobster tails
2 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil
4 whole-wheat hotdog buns
1 cup snow peas, trimmed
¼ cup minced celery
¼ cup reduced fat mayonnaise
2 tablespoon lemon juice
1 tablespoon minced shallot
2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
1 teaspoon chopped fresh tarragon
½ teaspoon freshly ground pepper
1/8 teaspoon salt to taste
¼ teaspoon garlic powder

Instruction

Start by preheating the grill to medium high. Then, prep the lobster tails to remove the meat. Cut the lobster tail lengthwise through the shell using kitchen shears. Brush the lobster meat with oil and lay the tail meat side down on the grill. Cook the lobster tail until the meat is slightly charred. Turn and continue grilling until meat is opaque.

Transfer the cooked lobster meat to a cutting board and let cool. Toast the whole wheat hotdog buns for 3 to 4 minutes. In a small pan of water, leave the liquid to boil and cook the snow peas until bright green. Drain the snow peas and soak with iced water. Slice the snow peas very thinly.

Go back to the cooked lobster to remove the meat. Chop the meat coarsely and add to a mixing bowl. Combine the celery, mayonnaise, lemon juice, shallot, mustard, tarragon, pepper, salt and garlic powder to the bowl and stir. Add the snow peas and mix very well. Finally, add a couple of dollops of the lobster filling to the toasted buns.  Serve immediately and enjoy!
