In the world of seafood, the most commonly marinated fish is the lobster.
And this recipe is the perfect combination of all of these flavors.
In fact, this is the best lobster-salad sandwich I’ve ever had.
The lobster-sliced marinated lobster, marinated in a tangy, citrusy sauce, then grilled and topped with avocado, onions, and tomatoes, this dish is the epitome of lobster-centric cooking.
But what about the avocado and cheese?
And the tomato sauce?
That’s where the avocado comes in.
In the summertime, I find myself with avocado and some cheese in my fridge, but it’s also my go-to condiment for salads.
It’s versatile enough to be used in a variety of recipes, from meat to fish to veggie burgers.
And it’s super easy to make and make delicious, too.
Here are the easy ways to make this recipe.
First, peel the avocado.
You can also chop it up, but you’ll probably want to use a food processor to do so.
Then, slice the avocado in half lengthwise.
Then you can use a paring knife to slice the halves and make a thin strip of skin.
Next, put it into a large bowl with a little water and a squeeze of lemon juice.
You want to keep the avocado’s water and juice in the bowl until you’re ready to use it.
(If you’re really trying to stay away from vinegar, I recommend using olive oil instead.)
Add the lemon juice and olive oil to the bowl, along with a tablespoon of sea salt and a pinch of freshly ground black pepper.
This is to keep everything nice and creamy.
Pour the avocado mixture into the bowl of your food processor, and pulse for a few seconds.
(You can use an immersion blender, too, or a food mill.)
Add in a few chopped tomatoes, and continue to pulse for another minute.
This should be the most evenly mixed avocado mixture you’ve ever seen.
Finally, add the tomato mixture, garlic, and avocado mixture.
It should be slightly salty, but not too salty, and it should be a little creamy.
(I used a pinch for each tablespoon of avocado mixture.)
Add this mixture to the bread, and top with the chopped tomatoes.
This sandwich is super versatile.
But if you want to make it a little more complex, you can add some cheese to it, too (just a little at a time, though).
Place the sandwich on a baking sheet and top it with some chopped avocado, chopped tomatoes and a little olive oil.
Sprinkle with a few cilantro leaves, if desired.
Serve the sandwich with avocado slices, avocado and olive butter, and some avocado slices for dipping.
