Healthy Lobster Rolls Recipe
- 14 oz. lobster meat cooked and de-shelled (use up to 1-1/2 lb. lobster if using large buns, or if you want to “overstuff” the roll.)
- 4 gluten-free rolls or potato rolls
- 1 tsp Olive oil
- 2 celery stalks preferably inside stalks with leaves
- ¼ cup Avocado aioli
- 2 tbsp Freshly chopped parsley
- 1 Juice of one fresh orange
- 1 Juice of one fresh lemon
- 1 Juice of one fresh lime
- ¼ cup extra-virgin olive oil
- 1 tablespoon of raw honey
- Pinch of sea salt
- 1 large garlic clove
- 2 ripe avocados
- Place all ingredients, in order, in either a 3-inch base Vitamix container or a Blendtec Twister Jar (use the larger Twister Jar, not the mini. If using the mini, halve the recipe).
- If using a Vitamix, affix the lid, and start the machine on Variable 1. Bring the speed up to Variable 10, and run for one minute, using the tamper if necessary to push the material into the blades. The riper the avocado, the less the need for a tamper.
- If using a Blendec, start the machine on Speed 1, and bring the speed up to 3, twisting the top’s blades to push the material into the spinning blades. Process for 40 seconds until smooth.
- Remove from the container and refrigerate.
- Prepare Avocado Aioli ahead of time, and refrigerate.
- Coarsely chop the lobster meat.
- Finely chop the celery stalks, and combine with the lobster meat in a bowl.
- Add ¼ cup of the Avocado Aioli to the lobster mixture.
- Brush the rolls with olive oil and toast either on a grill or in a heated fry pan.
- Fill the rolls with the prepared lobster mixture. Top with additional Avocado Aioli to taste.
- Top each roll with freshly chopped parsley and serve.
