It had a lot to do with the fact that John and I couldn't be in Maine this weekend, despite our original desire to. Last weekend, I got a late-Friday night call that put me on a plane to Vegas 24 hours later for a 48 hour no-sleep, back-to-back meeting packed trip. Needless to say, by the time I took the redeye back Tuesday night and made it into work Wednesday morning, no one wanted a lazy weekend more than me. As consideration to the man that put's up with this crazy work schedule I have, I decided lobster rolls were just the thing to make him forget about a missed holiday.
As you all know from the MANY times I have tried to win Saucy Mama's contest, she is certainly a difficult nut to crack! But if there's anything that's ever had a shot...it's this lobster roll. Deliciously saucy, I actually make mayonnaise from the Lime-Chipotle Marinade! John told me not to tell his mom, or any "true" Mainer that I was twisting up their lobster roll but the first thing he said after eating it was "can we make them again?". Maine, converted to the Saucy Mama way.

Saucy Lime-Chipotle Mayo:
1 egg yolk
2 tablespoon Saucy Mama Chipotle Mustard
1 tablespoon Saucy Mama Lime Chipotle Marinade
1/2 cup canola oil
1/3 cup Saucy Mama Lime Chipotle Marinade
1 lime, zested, parts reserved for juice
12 ounces lobster meat, cooked, cooled, and roughly chopped*
1 red bell pepper, diced
1 jalapeno, diced
1/2 red onion, diced
1/4 cup cilantro, thinly sliced
4 New England-Style hot dog buns
1 tablespoon butter, melted
Saucy Lime-Chipotle Mayo: Using a food processor or hand blender, combine egg yolk, Saucy Mama Chipotle Mustard, and 1 tablespoon of the Saucy Mama Lime Chipotle Marinade. Blend well. Then, beat in canola oil, drop by drop, until the mixture starts to come together. Then, drizzle in the rest of the oil in a very thin but steady stream. Beat in 1/3 cup of the Saucy Mama Lime Chipotle Marinade and lime zest. Beat well and refrigerate until ready to use.
In a large bowl, toss lobster meat, red bell pepper, jalapeno, red onion, and cilantro. Add the Saucy Lime-Chipotle Mayo and mix well. Refrigerate until ready to use.
Meanwhile, brush melted butter on the outsides of the hot dog buns. Grill or bake at 350 degrees about 3-5 minutes per side, until toasted. Stuff the buns carefully and evenly with the lobster mixture. Evenly distribute lime juice over the top of each lobster roll right before serving. Enjoy immediately!
*You can also use frozen lobster meat making sure to drain thoroughly so there is no excess water in the lobster salad
