A To-Die-For Lobster Sandwich

by zesty on July 20, 2012 · 2 comments


It is what you think it is… except different.

Imagine packing so much flavor in a sandwich, and you kind of feel guilty not sharing it?

Check this out.

What are your thoughts on a lobster sandwich that may possibly send chills down your spine?  Not your run-of-the mill lobster roll laced with mayo and celery.  I mean a serious sandwich topped with a crunchy slaw and kissed with a herbed oil.

I think you are going to love it.

This just in: The combination of crunch and flavor coupled with the smooth taste of the lobster is a definite winner.  Two taste testers, two sets of thumbs up.

Crunchy, Slaw-Topped Lobster Sandwich

Servings: Makes 2 sandwiches


  • 12oz fresh lobster
  • 2 Tsp. Mayo
  • Salt and pepper

Tangy Herb Sauce

  • 1/2 Cup basil, fresh
  • 1/3 Cup cilantro, fresh
  • 1/3 Cup raw cashews
  • 1/3 Cup olive oil
  • 1/3 Cup red wine vinegar
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/8 Tsp. dried chili peppers
  • 1/2 Tsp. salt

Crunchy Slaw

  • 1 cup cabbage, sliced thinly
  • 1/2 cup carrot, sliced thinly
  • Handful of spinach, sliced thinly

Slaw Dressing

  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 3 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 Tbsp. vinegar
  • 1/2 Tsp. dry mustard
  • 1 Tsp. dried oregano
  • 1 Tsp. honey
  • Salt and pepper


  1. For the tangy herb sauce, combine all ingredients in a food processor or blender.
  2. If too thick, drizzle more olive oil but you do not want it to thin. Let chill.
  3. For the dressing, combine all ingredients in a seal-able jar and give it a good shake with the lid on.
  4. Pour over slaw and toss. This makes more dressing than needed, so store leftover dressing in a sealable jar or container.
  5. Let chill until ready to prepare sandwich.
  6. For the lobster, mix the mayo, salt and pepper together and set aside.
  7. Slice bread/roll and toast the roll slightly.
  8. Spread the herb sauce on both sides of the toasted bread.
  9. Mound the lobster onto of one side of the bread.
  10. Add a generous topping of the crunchy slaw.
  11. Top with the other half of the toasted bread.
  12. ENJOY!

Zesty Tip: Make sure your lobster is nice and dry.  Lie it out on a paper towel before sandwich preparation as you do not want the bread to get soggy.

Thank you for all your awesome emails the last couple of days.  I have a lot of great ideas for the campground.  I am excited!  I want your opinion on this lobster sandwich as it took a lot of trial and error but I really think it was worth the wait.

Have an awesome day and weekend.

Take care
