Lobster Salad with Brown-Butter Vinaigrette

By Andrew Zimmern

Lobster with brown butter vinaigrette is a combination I first fell in love with after a meal at Eventide Oyster Co. in Portland, Maine. Their untraditional lobster roll is a Chinese-style steamed bun stuffed with warm lobster coated in a beautiful brown butter vinaigrette. It’s what put the restaurant on the map, and for good reason.



Melt the butter in a small pan over medium heat and cook until browned, about 5 minutes.

Divide the lobster onto two plates. Surround with greens and top with minced onion and celery.

In a mixing bowl, whisk together the browned butter, vinegar, lemon juice, mustard and olive oil. Season with salt and pepper, then drizzle over the lobster. Serve with a croutons or slices of toast.
