Chef Guzman’s Guest-Worthy Recipe:
Spicy Sambal Lobster Salad
“Lobster is always a crowd pleaser and it’s at its best during the spring and summer. This recipe is simple, yet delicious and easy to prepare. The Asian influence adds a nice twist on an old classic. It’s great for impressing your guests, and serving lobster always makes people feel special.”
“It can be offered as an appetizer or a main course on top of lettuce cups, brioche toast, raw vegetable chips, or rolled up in rice paper for a unique version of a spring roll, or served open-faced with a side of garlic parmesan fries. A memorable dish that invokes the spirit of summertime by the sea!”
1 lb cooked lobster meat, diced into medium-sized pieces
1 piece of green onion, thinly sliced
1/4 c chopped chives
1/2 c mayonnaise
2 Tbsp Sambal Oelek (you can find this in the Asian section of your local supermarket). Use more or less to taste.
In a large bowl, combine all of the ingredients, adjusting the amount of seasonings, and Sambal.
Once incorporated, place the lobster in the refrigerator for about 15 minutes to let the flavors marry together.
Serve on your favorite toasted bread or lettuces.
