Scale

Ingredients

  • ¼ cup reduced-fat mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon sambal oelek
  • 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1 1/2 pounds cooked, shelled lobster meat, cubed
  • 1 celery stalk, sliced
  • 1 tablespoon red onion, chopped
  • 2 green onions, sliced
  • 1 teaspoon lemongrass, finely chopped (white parts only)
  • Zest from ½ lime
  • 1 tablespoon fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 1 can (16.3 oz) Pillsbury Grands Buttermilk Biscuits

Instructions

  1. To make the aioli: In a small bowl, whisk together mayonnaise, sambal oelek and lemon juice. Set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine lobster, celery, red onion, green onion, lemongrass, lime zest, and cilantro. Fold in the aioli mixture. Set aside.
  3. Separate dough into 8 biscuits. With fingers, flatten each into rounds about ½ inch thick. Fold over to form half-moon shape; place in steamer or bamboo steamer lined with parchment paper. Set steamer on top of wok or saucepan with boiling water. Steam 10 minutes; cool completely.
  4. Cut buns in half, but not completely through, to form a pocket. Stuff buns with lobster salad mixture and serve immediately on a platter. Serve with a side of potato chips or your favorite side, like Spicy Fennel and Broccoli Slaw!

Notes

You can use frozen or fresh lobster for this dish. I had Whole Foods steam the lobster for me. Sambal oelek can be found at select grocery stores and specialty Asian markets.
