Elegant Meal & Casual Dining
this basic recipe by Martha Stewart, or combine 1 cup Duke's Mayonnaise with a very finely chopped garlic clove and two tablespoons of finely chopped fresh basil. Either one makes an excellent flavor companion for the lobster.
The only thing that makes this elegant meal better is that you don't have to eat it in a formal environment. Dining room table, pearls and tuxedos are optional. While you may certainly use good china, linen napkins and "the good glasses" for you wine, you can take this dining experience down a notch and enjoy it all on a picnic excursion by the lake or on your patio under a brightly colored umbrella. This elegant meal may be enjoyed in the most casual manner, even going so far as to use fingers instead of forks.
And what do with the leftovers? Gather them up in a bowl, squeeze lemon juice over the top, stir in a little of the garlic-basil mayonnaise (or aioli) and a teeny bit of finely chopped celery. Now you've got a fabulous lobster roll filling! Can you say, lobster round two?
