French in a Flash: 'Summer' Lobster Sandwiches with Zucchini Frites and Heirloom Tomato Salad Recipe

French in a Flash: 'Summer' Lobster Sandwiches with Zucchini Frites and Heirloom Tomato Salad Recipe
26 Ingredients
  • 1/4 teaspoon lime juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons freshly squeezed orange juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon total of lemon, lime, and orange zests
  • 1 tablespoon mayonnaise
  • 1/4 teaspoon snipped chives
  • 1 tablespoon finely sliced celery
  • 7 ounces lobster meat, cut into very large chunks (about 1 cup total, or the meat from the tail of a 2-pound spiny lobster), steamed and cold
  • Salt and freshly cracked black pepper
  • 1/4 wheat baguette
  • Butter, room temperature
  • A Note about this Recipe
  • My handsome lunch date this Labor Day: a two-pound Florida spiny lobster
  • I understand lobster prices are down around the country (I found Florida spiny lobsters on sale for $9.99 a pound), and the fish counters at most supermarkets charge nothing to steam your lobster for you. I massacred a lot of sea life in my cooking school
  • Vegetable oil for frying
  • 2 small zucchini, cut into French fries
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 4 basil leaves, sliced into a fine chiffonade
  • 3/4 teaspoon fleur de sel
  • A Note about this Recipe
  • Make these just before you serve them—they will become soggy if you leave them waiting. A great variation that retains its crispiness longer is zucchini chips. Just slice them 1/8-inch thick on a mandoline and follow the same recipe.
  • 1 1/2 pounds heirloom tomatoes of assorted colors, sliced
  • Olive oil for drizzling
  • Fleur de sel for seasoning
  • A Note on this Recipe
  • This is obviously more of a suggestion than a recipe, but it goes so well with the lobster sandwiches, that I wanted to include it. Using fleur de sel adds beauty and texture to the salad.
