Today’s post is featuring a new recipe added to our Classic American/Soups and Sandwiches Page:

New England Lobster Rolls

To make perfect New England lobster rolls, you want to keep it simple. The succulent flavor of lobster meat is in itself what you want featured. Avoid the temptation to add much – if anything – to this simple, yet elegant recipe. Too many extra flavors can wind up overshadowing the unique and subtle flavor of the lobster salad filling. Even the use of sriracha hot sauce, if overdone, can ruin New England Lobster Rolls. You may even want to not use any hot sauce at all, but I find just a bit of it actually adds a “brightening-up” taste to the lobster. Experiment for yourself.

Note: If you are going to use fresh lobster meat, and will cook it yourself, you will need to buy four times the weight (in lobster tail form) of the amount you want to wind up with for your lobster salad. In other words, for this recipe, which calls for 1 pound of lobster meat, you would need four pounds of fresh lobster tails.

The below recipe does not take into account cooking time for the lobster, so for your convenience there is a chart below the recipe which shows how long to steam the tails.

The big difference, and what has recently become a wildly popular method recently all throughout the West and Europe, is that making Turkish sand coffee involves using – you guessed it …

If you love Asian cuisine and enjoy preparing authentic and traditional dishes, then making homemade miso paste is a skill you might want to acquire. Originating in Japan, miso is a fermented food, made with soybeans. And it has for millennia been a staple in their cuisine.

You can, of course, just buy good quality, authentic and traditional miso paste in most major metropolitan areas, around the world. Companies like Maruya Hatcho Co., in Okazaki, Japan, mass produce miso while still using ancient and traditional methods.

You can even purchase from a wide variety here on our online foods store. misoFor making homemade miso paste, you will need just a small amount of already prepared miso – it acts as a “starter”, with the bacteria in it initiating the fermentation process.

But there is nothing quite like the satisfaction of making homemade miso paste yourself, and using it to prepare your favorite Asian dishes. And making homemade miso paste also gives you the ability to adjust the taste with what beans you use, the length of fermentation time, additional kinds of ingredients you can include, etc. – which we get into later in this article.
