oysters on the half shell

We find that oysters are easier to open if you chill them first for approximately 15 minutes, directly in the freezer or simply on ice.

24 oysters, rinsed and shucked (see Sidebar, page 22)
4 lemon wedges
Cocktail Sauce (recipe follows)
Mignonette Sauce (recipe follows)
Remoulade (recipe follows)
Tabasco sauce (optional)

Serve the oysters in a large bowl filled with crushed ice, lemon wedges, and ramekins of the sauces. Have a bottle of Tabasco sauce available for those who like an added kick.

cocktail sauce

1 cup Heinz ketchup
1 lemon, juiced, to yield 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1 tablespoon prepared horseradish
1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1 to 2 drops Tabasco sauce (optional)

In a medium bowl, combine all the ingredients. Refrigerate for 30 minutes before serving.

mignonette sauce

1/2 cup red wine vinegar (feel free to substitute champagne vinegar or flavored vinegar)
2 shallots, minced
1 tablespoon chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

In a small bowl, whisk together the vinegar, shallots, and parsley. Season with salt and pepper and refrigerate until ready to serve.

remoulade
Makes about 3 cups

2 cups Hellmann's mayonnaise
3 tablespoons green sweet relish
2 garlic cloves, minced
2 teaspoons capers
1 tablespoon anchovy paste
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice (from about 1/2 lemon)
1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

In a medium bowl, combine all the ingredients. Refrigerate for several hours to allow the flavors to marry.

Format: Hardcover
Written by Hamptons insiders, The Lobster Roll purports to be a charming and useful summer cookbook. And while its size and photos do make it aesthetically appealing, its prose and recipes disappoint. There's not much new here, including the self-congratulatory tone that permeates the glossy pages. Anyone who has visited the Hamptons will recognize the you'll-always-be-an-outsider-compared-to-me attitude; anyone who has ever made crab salad has already advanced beyond this book.

Its zero outside and I feel warm reading this cookbook. I bought some lobster and made a roll with lemonade using the books concoction. I felt like I was back on the shore in July.
Great reading on a bone chilling day in Chicago.

The pictures are great. The recipes are ok, but they fell a little flat. It's not something that I feel I'm going to use a lot.

If you're traveling to the Hamptons, this is a great book to take along with you. Besides recipes, it contains locations for restaurants, farm stands, and other foodie stops featured throughout the terrific book. I also bought a copy for a friend in Vermont to enjoy.
