Food fads are a funny thing. Recipes can be around for centuries, but leave it to a talented, enterprising chef to revive or reinvent one and the world seems to react as if they’d discovered something utterly new. Think back to the cupcake shop craze, the long lines outside of Pinkberrys when they first opened up, and the countless gourmet burger restaurants to name just a few recent culinary trends. When I was living in New York City 10 years ago several charming little restaurants in the West Village started a lobster roll craze, making it the new go-to meal for food junkies — never mind that lobster rolls had been around since at least the 1920’s.
Our family was in Boston this year for spring break and we shamefully missed having this classic New England fare which is a must whenever visiting. I saw people eating them at every turn, but we couldn’t get a reservation at any of the places famous for serving them. Sadly we left, missing out on a dish I really wanted the kids to try.
I returned home from our trip to find the gorgeous new Recipe Girl Cookbook waiting for me and one of the first things I came across was Lori’s recipe for Lemon Lobster Rolls! If Matt Armendariz’s luscious image didn’t captivate me enough, Lori’s unique lemon twist sealed the deal. When I’ve offered the kids lobster in the past they usually hesitate, saying it smells too fishy, but the lemon totally changed their minds. They loved it. Feeling nostalgic for Boston, we all piled the plump pieces of fresh lobster into grainy rolls and dug in for the perfect lunch.
Thank you to Recipe Girl Lori Lange for reinventing this delectable classic!

Great Giveaway! These lobster rolls sound great
I have not tried lobster rolls before but I like to try it someday. It is because the picture shows how the dish look so yummy and appetizing. Is there an alternative ingredient if lobster is not available? It is interesting that lemons are used in this recipe. I think lemons can make this dish more flavorful to taste. Although I am not eligible to win, good luck to the winner.

Having lived in Boston for a bunch of years, I miss the fresh seafood,especially the lobster rolls!
I would LOVE a new blender – mine is a hand-me-down from my mom and has seen better days. I use it often to make smoothies for my kids in the summer.
Love your website, book, and ideas so much! Thank you for helping in my endeavors to feed my little one a nutritious diet that also fosters her curiosity and desires to try new things!
I heart Weelicious so much! I probably make four or five weelicious recipes a week. My three kids all have planet boxes. Favorite recipe right now: beet pancakes. My super skinny super sensitive six year old calls them red velvet pancakes and eats like four of them. I use chocolate soy milk instead of cows milk, but that’s the only thing I change. Love love love this site
This giveaway sounds amazing!

I grew up eating buttery lobster rolls but love the lemon idea. Nice and refreshing!

I grew up in Boston and we love lobster rolls. They never go out of style. Some of the best can be found in Menemsha Harbor on Martha’s Vineyard – lobster, celery and mayo stuffed into a white bread hot dog bun grilled in butter on the flat top! Not as healthy as yours – but really delicious as a special treat! Love your recipes – healthy AND yummy.
I would love to win! Great recipes!
