Florida Lobster Roll with a Key Lime Avocado Aioli

So, its Lobster Season here in Florida, my favorite season of the year.  Florida Spiny Lobster is very tasty and fun to catch.  There are a million easy ways to cook up these tasty bugs, my favorite is the Florida Lobster Roll.  Traditionally these are made with Maine Lobster, here is our take Florida style.

everything you need to make a delicious florida lobster rollIngredients:

  • Florida Spiny Lobster – I used 4 smaller tails (cook to your liking – steamed, baked or grilled) I steamed with Old Bay and salt.
  • Mayonaise
  • Key Limes
  • Avocado
  • Scallions or Chives
  • Cilantro
  • Old Bay & Salt to taste
  • Sub rolls – I prefer soft style more like a big hot dog bun

Key Lime Avocado Aioli

Mix this up first.  I used my food processor to thoroughly blend – but a fork does the job too.  Mix together 1/4 cup of mayo, 1 avocado, 4 limes juiced, finely chopped cilantro and salt to taste. Super easy and a great light taste that compliments the lobster very nicely.  This is used as a spread on the bread. So keep it separate.

Florida Lobster Roll 

Roughly chop up the cooked Florida Spiny Lobster and a second avocado.  I like bigger chunks – chop it to your liking.  Then take 2-3 tablespoons of mayo, more finely chopped cilantro, scallions and a couple of key limes juiced and mix it up thoroughly.  Then gentle toss the lobster and avocado chunks into mix.  I keep the mayo to a minimum, just enough to keep it mixed together.   Take the sub rolls and cut them in half.  Spread butter and like a little garlic salt to enhance it and toast it under the broiler.  Take the toasted roll, spread the Key Lime Avocado Aioli on each side, I added lettuce first then generous amounts of the lobster mix and done.  YUMMY!
