Alison Lockhart's Lobster Rolls

Tuesday, August 15, 2017

I started watching The Affair a few months ago and instantly became hooked.  Aside from the total drama and the amazingly multi-dimensional characters, the gorgeous East Coast beach scenes and fashion stole my heart....along with the diner that Alison and Noah meet at in Montauk: the Lobster Roll, which is famous for their...lobster rolls. Now, I've never actually had a lobster roll, but I have had my share of lobster and since (duh) I no longer eat meat, I decided to finally make a lobsterless version.  My favorite substitutes for sea food are mushrooms and hearts of palm.  I made hearts of palm sauteed like scallops a few nights after I made these rolls and DAMN.  But then again I generally just love anything cooked in copious amounts of butter (my dad's family is Southern).

So before I get to the food, who else is a fan of The Affair?  I'm really hoping they add Whitney's POV to the 4th season. I LOVED Whitney in season 3.  I've always been curious about her character and I'm glad they really explored the effects of everything on her in the finale.

Loved this scene at Furkat's loft.  His place was so great and Whitney looked so chic. Of course he sucks and this scene didn't end well....but it looked good.

Oh yeah, the food.


For your lobster:
1 can hearts of palm, salad cut
half a red onion, diced
3 celery stalks, chopped
2 tbsp. vegenaise
celery seed
onion powder
old bay seasoning
garlic powder
2 tsp capers

For serving:
hot dog buns
lemon wedges
fresh dill

Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Drain your hearts of palm and toss in a dish with the dried spices, making sure to coat evenly.  Bake for about 20-30 minutes or until they start to get golden.  Take out of the oven and  transfer to a bowl and mix with the rest of the ingredients and pop this in the fridge to chill completely.

Toast your rolls and spoon in a heaping amount of the lobster mix.  Squeeze lemon wedges over the top and set to the side of the plate.  Garnish with dill.

These are perfect with fries or thick cut potato chips (though I served mine with vegan shells and cheese) and honestly, if you really wanna set the mood, an iced tea or white wine spritzer outside on a nice summer day.

One of my favorite simple meals and Alex approved!
