Lobster Avocado Toast

Lobster Avocado Toast

Mark Murrell

Avocado toast is on trend. All the fancy schmancy restaurants in the hip boroughs of NYC are on a HUGE toast kick. So, why not #AddLobster! Thanks to Serena from Domesticate Me.

Ingredients:

  • Perfectly cooked FRESH Maine lobster meat
  • 2 ripe medium avocados
  • 2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
  • Fine grain sea salt
  • 4-6 slices crusty bread of your choice (or a small baguette sliced into rounds if you’re going the crostini route)
  • 4 ounces picked lobster meat, chopped into small pieces
  • ½ jalapeño, very thinly sliced or finely chopped (whatever floats your boat)
  • 2 teaspoons finely chopped chives
  • Extra virgin olive oil for drizzling

Preparation:

  1. Slice your avocados in half lengthwise. Remove the pits and scoop them into a bowl. Add the lemon juice and a good pinch of sea salt.
  2. Mash the avocadoes with a fork until relatively smooth. No need to go crazy, peeps, a few chunks are fine. Briefly set aside.
  3. Pre-heat your broiler on high, and go ahead and slice your bread.
  4. Arrange the bread on a baking sheet and broil for 1-2 minutes per side until nice and toasty. (Yes, you can obviously use a toaster if you prefer. Do a lot of people own toasters these days? I don’t.)
  5. Spread each piece of toast with a thick layer of avocado mash. Top with lobster, then sprinkle with jalapeño and chives. Drizzle each with a teensy bit of olive oil.
  6. If you want to finish these bad boys with a little extra lemon and some flaky sea salt, by all means, go ahead…
