Expert Tips

To remove lobster meat, separate the tail from the body by breaking the shell in half where tail and body meet. Cut away membrane on tail to expose meat. Discard the vein that runs through tail near head of lobster. Twist large claws away from body of lobster. Use a nutcracker to break open the claws. Remove meat from claws, tail and body.

Bolillos rolls are a Mexican roll with a crisp brown crust and soft chewy interior, similar to a baguette. If your grocery store bakery department doesn’t carry them, you can use another type of crusty sandwich roll.
