Celiegirl's Simple Low Carb Lobster Salad

Summer time food

It's summer time again and it is HOT in Georgia! Really Hot! It makes the idea of siestas an awesome way to incorporate in one's summer lifestyle routine. Besides that i always suggest and live by the philosophy not to go outside or do anything between the hours of 11 am and 4 pm. This is not always possible but unless necessary I have nothing to do outside.

Since it is so hot, i tend to want to eat cold foods and salads are a great substitute for any full hot meal!

What i love about salads is that they are so versatile and take very little effort to fix but are oh so enjoyable! Especially depending on what ingredients that you choose to use and there is a huge assortment of ways and combinations to make a good palatable meal.

Any salad made with mayo is one of my favorite versions, as long as it is fresh!

Lobster salad is one of those simple mayo based salads that can be versatile, savory and done in a variety of different ways. The following gives the simplest of salad recipes with several rev'd up versions for distinct tastes.

These are all low carbohydrate salads as well, making them ideal for weight loss! They also can be served at any event or gathering as an excellent accompaniment to any setting. Besides being tasty they are also simple, easy and quick.

These recipes all take less than 30 minutes from start to finish. So, if you don't have to steam the meat yourself it will go even faster.

Enjoy!

Cooking Lobster meat

Cooking lobster tails is easy! And the fresher the lobster meat the better for this particular salad! What you will need to do is steam the lobster tail meat until the shell is pink or red and the meat is opaque and firm yet tender and still juicy!

In a medium to large saucepan with a lid add water and salt. At this point i also like to add half a clove of garlic and most outer layer of an onion for flavor.

Allow the tail and meat to cool at least 60 minutes, then proceed to cut the shell open down the center back to split it in half.

Ohhh ameliejan you are missing out! You have to get to the closest seafood place and try it! A Red Lobster is a great first place to try it. You must remedy, especially if you enjoy seafood like crab, shrimp and shellfish. Thanks!
