Lobster Roll

A great lobster roll has two key ingredients: lots of succulent lobster and a soft, toasted whole-grain bun. Inspired by LA's Lobsta Truck (lobstatruck.com), born out of a New England road trip, we've lightened up the mayo schmear but managed to keep all the classic flavor intact.

Nutritional Bonus: Ounce for ounce, lobster is lower in fat and calories than boneless, skinless chicken breast (90 calories versus 160 calories in a 3 1/2-oz serving). Better yet, lobster is also rich in omega-3 fatty acids, which help to lower cholesterol and may reduce your risk of heart disease.
