  • Total Time: 15 minutes
  • Yield: 4 servings 1x

Ingredients

Units Scale

Langostino Lobster Filling:

  • 6 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 23 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1 lemon, zested
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 12 ounces frozen langostino lobster tails, thawed* (1 bag of langostino tails from Trader Joe ‘s)

Rolls:

  • 4 brioche hot dog buns, split top
  • 2 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 2 tablespoons chives, finely diced
  • Optional: 1 tablespoon fresh parsley, for garnish
  • Lemon wedges, for serving

Instructions

  1. Prepare the Langostino Lobster Filling: Drain thawed langostino tails well and pat dry with paper towels. Melt 6 tablespoons of unsalted butter in a medium-sized pan over medium heat. Add minced garlic and sauté until fragrant. Use a whisk to stir in kosher salt, smoked paprika, lemon zest, and lemon juice. Mix well to combine the flavors. Add the langostino tails to the pan and cook for 3-4 minutes or until heated through, careful not to overcook. Stir occasionally to coat the langostino in the flavorful butter mixture. Remove from heat and set aside.
  2. Toast the Brioche Buns: While the langostino mixture is cooking, spread softened butter on the split sides of the Brioche hot dog buns (basically, you turn the buns inside out!). In a separate pan or on a griddle, toast the buns until golden brown. This step enhances the flavor and texture of the rolls.
  3. Assemble the Langostino Lobster Rolls: Spoon the prepared langostino lobster filling generously into each toasted brioche bun. Sprinkle diced chives over the filling for a burst of freshness. Garnish with fresh parsley for an extra touch of flavor and visual appeal.
  4. Serve: Arrange the langostino lobster rolls on a serving platter. Serve with lemon wedges on the side for squeezing over the rolls, adding a bright and citrusy finish to the dish.

Notes

* How to thaw: To thaw langostino tails, place the sealed package in a large bowl and refrigerate for about 8-12 hours. Quick thaw: use a sealed bag and immerse in cold water, changing the water every 30 minutes. Once thawed, use it promptly, and do not refreeze.
