I love a good Lobster BLT. The crispy bacon, sweet lobster salad and acidic tomato on toast with crunchy lettuce and mayonnaise is one of my favorite combinations.
Lately though, more and more guests are avoiding bread for a variety of reasons. While I love the classic, I felt a need to update this delicious dish to keep up with changing tastes so I ditched the bread and put the lettuce on the outside. Here is my recipe for Lobster BLT Lettuce Wraps.
Lobster BLT Lettuce Wraps
Makes 6 wraps
1/4 cup celery, small dice
1/3 cup mayonnaise
2 cups lobster meat cut into large pieces
Salt and pepper to taste
Wrap and Garnish:
6 romaine leaves
10 grape tomatoes, quartered
4 strips bacon (or more) cooked
To make lobster salad, combine all ingredients in a bowl and stir briefly. Season with salt and pepper and set aside.
Trim the root end off the romaine leaves. Rinse and dry thoroughly.
Chop bacon and chives and quarter tomatoes.
Place lettuce rib side down and fill with lobster salad.
Garnish with tomatoes, bacon and chives.
