Putting together the lobster rolls was very fun and even though the instructions were easy to understand I did find it a little tricky getting the meat out of the lobster.

Upon grabbing my lobster to start making my lunch I must admit I loved seeing a whole lobster (still in shell) within my kit. However I was a little concerned how would I get the meat out but thanks to the instructions provided after a bash and twist here I soon got the lobster meat out. However I must add you do need force to crack open the lobster as the shell is very hard, I even had to get a rolling pin out to bash it. Once the meat was out of the shell though it did not disappoint as the meat was fresh, chunky and white. The only thing I did not like about ripping apart the lobster was the green stuff that came out of the head and the red eggs within my lobster. The green stuff I have learnt is called the Tomalley which is part of the lobster digestive system which is made up of liver and the pancreas. It also is considered delicious Tomalley is considered the most flavoursome part. Anyway the Tomalley did not appeal to me nor did the eggs so before chopping up my lobster meat I decided to wash away the Tomalley and eggs. Once all the lobster meat was chopped I then mixed with the sauces and vegetable provided.

The only cooking that is required is melting the butter which is provided in the box and toasting the brioche buns. Simply I melted the butter on a low heat in a pan and for the buns after slitting in half but not fully I toasted in a frying pan for around a minute.

Then it was onto building the rolls. Opening up the rolls I loaded each with the lobster mix and topped with extra spring onions. Some of the rolls I sprinkled with coriander and chipotle chilli and served alongside a bowl of the melted butter to dip the rolls within.

Simply these rolls were meaty, creamy and spicy explosion hitting all the senses.


Rating: 4.5 out of 5.

Even though I love lobster you may be surprised to hear that I have never ever had a lobster roll before until now and I was not disappointed. The lobster roll is one of the tastiest rolls I have ever had in my life, I felt like royalty munching down on these rolls.

They were full of flavour thanks to the large chunks lobster meat, the creamy yet smoky sauce, hits of sweetness from the spring onion, the heat from the Chipotle chilli and the fresh flavoursome brioche buns.

Plus apart from the Lobster Brioche kit I have also enjoyed Waagyu Burger kits which were also very easy to put together and were delicious. Click on link below to ready my in depth review on them.

So if you are looking for a quick easy meal, which is luxurious and tasty then I highly recommend this lobster brioche kit by Chef Dean Banks which can be purchased for home delivery via Waagyu Burger or Haar at Home.

Make your lunchtime special ditch the traditional sandwich and create yourself a deluxe lobster roll.
