Fresh lobster is one of the great foods you can eat. While it’s messy to eat a lobster tail and usually always pretty expensive, a great alternative is the lobster roll when you need your lobster fix. Irresistible when it is done right and served on a nice soft roll, once you’ve had a good lobster roll, it can become a fixture in your rotation.
