Lobster Lunch / Hummer Lunsj

A fancy lunch recipe found on godt.no
lobster roll_godt_post

This is simply a small lobster sandwich. It’s nice fresh bread stuffed with homemade lobster salad; You use good quality hot dog buns or halved baguettes and a fully cooked lobster.

The most complicated part of this dish is to clean the boiled lobster; if you have not done this before, it is quite amazing how much fumbling it might take to get it done  😉

I have no idea whether this salad recipe originates from California or if it is just a name the authors of the book thought was a fancy name. Whatever, the salad looks quite delicious – Ted

I love shellfish, but how come the most expensive of them is, at least served au naturel, the most tasteless and boring of them all. Lobster may be regarded as the finest, but hey, give me crabs any day. Here’s a very nice way to serve crabs as a filling starter or lunch – Ted

Cranberry Soufflé Salad / Tyttebær Sufflésalat

A recipe from an ad for Hellmann’s Mayonnaise published
in LIFE magazine in 1958

cranberry_souffle_salad_LIFE_1958_post

As I have mentioned before, my mother worked at Norway’s largest producer of mayonnaise most of her working life, so I grew up on the stuff. And as a Norwegian I also have a great love of cranberries, almost all of us do.

But mixing the two, well, I’m not all that sure really. But that’s just me. What ever blows your skirt up visitor, go for it if it tickles you fancy- Ted 😉
