Let the glory that is the modern food mash-up wash over you like a nice tall glass of lemonade-spaghetti. First there was the Cronut, then the Ramen Burger and then, well, a billion other things. Newest mash-up on the Franken-circuit? This ramen noodle lobster roll.
Created by food blogger Joy of The Cooking of Joy, this lobster roll is heavy on the lobster and not so heavy on the roll. It’s essentially a bunch of lobster salad wedged between a ramen tortilla of sorts. The salad consists of lobster, toasted sesame oil and Japanese mayonnaise. The ramen is prepared by chilling and then pan frying the noodles, then shaping them into something that can play house with Maine’s greatest treasure.
