Lobster Tacos for Taco Tuesday, or Any Day (Recipe)

Sunday, September 25, 2016

Fresh Maine lobster meets summer-sweet corn in these quick tacos, which require little more than a squeeze of lime juice and avocado crema to dress them up.

I am a lobster fiend, and a recent trip to Maine had me returning with pounds of lobster meat and shells from eight (!) lobsters from the previous night’s clambake. The shells were used to make a sublime lobster bisque (one of the best recipes on this blog, hands down) and more was used in a modern lobster roll. The remainder was stuffed into soft corn tortillas for lobster tacos. Nothing fancy here, just succulent lobster tossed with summer-sweet corn and a squeeze of lime juice then spooned onto a spicy avocado crema and scattered with scallions.

I’d usually include a delightful mango salsa or peach salsa with this taco, as well as cilantro, but didn’t have any of the stuff on hand for that. And they were terrific even so!
