Lobster Grilled Cheese Sandwich
- Lobster, Smoked Cheddar, Seaside English Cheddar, Granny Apples, Breadsmith Country White Bread
Before anything, I would like to thank lovely and talented thewanderingeater as much for her photography and her fantastic blog, as for challenging my creativity and inspiration to make this relatively simple dish.
Simplicity in this case is primarily, if not exclusively, about the preparation of the sandwich itself, but hardly about anything else on the plate. I bought a live lobster, quickly steeped the tail in court-boullion, reserving the claws for a different dish. Lobster medallions were then fanned over Country White bread by Breadsmith , covered with shredded Seaside English Cheddar and Smoked Cheddar, and covered with Granny Apple 0.5 mm slices. The outside of the sandwich was brushed with Plugra butter and grilled on a non-stick griddle.
I loved the medley of flavors and textures, but especially the tenderness and sweetness of lobster tail cooked by melting cheese.
