Langostino Rolls

I made these for a dinner with friends last night. They are pretty much the same as lobster rolls, but since I didn’t have lobster I used langostino. The flavor is very similar to lobster. As part of my challenge to see how long I can go without going to the grocery store I used frozen langostinos I had already. I also made the rolls which were much better than anything I might have purchased.

Langostino Rolls

The filling:

2 lbs. frozen, cooked langostino, thawed and squeezed dry

3/4 c. mayo- or a little more to taste

3 ribs celery, minced

1/2 c. parsley

juice of 1 lemon

3 T. capers

salt and pepper to taste

dash of hot sauce

Combine filling ingredients and chill well before using.

To assemble the rolls split rolls most of the way through and open gently. Place in a skillet, cut side down,  with some melted butter and cook over medium heat until bread is toasted. Place a generous scoop of the filling in each roll. Makes 12.

Shallot/Garlic Rolls

3 ½ -4 ½ c. flour

2 c. whole wheat flour

2 packages  yeast

½ c. sautéed minced shallots- I cooked them in a little oil and let them cool down before using

1 T.  minced garlic

1 T. honey

2 t. salt

¼ c. olive oil

2 ¼ c. warm water

In a mixing bowl combine 2 c. of flour with the rest of the ingredients and mix until smooth. Beat with electric mixer 4 minutes then add 1-cup additional flour and beat 1 minute longer. Stir in whole wheat flour ½ cup at a time until soft dough forms. Turn onto surface and knead, adding flour gradually until dough is smooth and elastic. Place dough in lightly greased bowl and turn to cover. Cover with a towel and let rise until doubled, about 50 minutes. Turn dough onto surface and cut in half. Divide each half into 8 pieces and roll into 6-7 inch log rolls. Place on greased baking sheet a few inches apart. Repeat with remaining dough. You’ll end up with 16 rolls in all. Cover until doubled in size, about 40 minutes.

Bake in a preheated 375-degree oven for 20 minutes, or until rolls sounds hollow when tapped lightly. Makes 16.

Note: For the recipe you’ll need about 12 of the rolls. Use the rest for other sandwiches.
