If you have a good recipe for crab cakes, just sub in the lobster and top with melted butter when they are finished. Even better, I've made lobster rolls with premade crescent roll dough and they were fabulous. Let me know if you want the recipe.

No problem - below is the recipe that I began with. Please remember that mine is not the "traditional" lobster roll.

The World-Famous Maine Lobster Roll

Recipe courtesy Jasper White

Lobster Salad:
1/2 pound fully cooked lobster meat or 1 (2 1/2 pound) live lobster
1/2 medium cucumber, peeled, seeded and finely diced
1/4 cup bottled mayonnaise
1/2 tablespoon fresh tarragon
2 small scallions, thinly sliced
Kosher or sea salt
Freshly ground pepper


lobster salad.

If using live lobsters, steam or boil them. Let cool at room temperature. Use a cleaver to crack and remove the meat from the claws, knuckles and tails. Remove the cartilage from the claws and the intestines from the tails of the cooked meat. Cut the meat into 1/2-inch dice. You may pick all the meat from the carcass and add it to the meat or freeze the carcass for soup or broth.

Place the cucumber in a colander for at least 5 minutes to drain the excess liquid. Combine the lobster, cucumber mayonnaise, and tarragon. Add the scallions. Season with salt and pepper. Cover with plastic wrap and chill for 30 minutes to 1 hour. 

This is what I changed - I omitted the cucumber when preparing the lobster salad.  When I prepared the lobster meat I sprinkled it with 1/2 tsp of paprika, 1/2 tsp garlic, and a smidge of chilli powder (this is to taste). I coated the lobster well with this and let it chill together for 30 mins to an hour.  After chilling the seasoned meat I added everything else and folded it until just mixed. You do not want this runny, so add the may a little at a time.  When just bound together, set aside in the fridge. Take your cresent roll dough and spread it out flat.  Do not seperate the triangles -you need four rectangles of dough.  If they start to pull apart, gently pinch the edges back together.  Take your filling and spoon in enough to fill in the middle lengthwise. Fold the dough over and pinch the edges to seal.  Do this to all four.  Bake at 350 F for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown. Cool 5 minutes and eat warm.

We ended up having the lobster last night, with melted butter and Caesar salad. Tonight I made a gumbo using duck, crab and shrimp.

That sounds like a really good gumbo combo!

I agree that lobster is a delicacy unto itself. I think the way you served it is perfect! ;D
