Lobster Bites

Delicious Lobster Bites

This is essentially the same filling that is found in a classic lobster roll. For even more luxurious flavor, lightly brush the filo cups with melted butter and bake in a 350-degree oven for a few minutes, until lightly browned, before filling with lobster.


Ingredients

  • 4 ounces lobster meat, shredded into small pieces
  • ľ cup finely diced celery
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 32 filo cups (available frozen in supermarkets)
  • 1Ĺ tablespoons finely sliced chives or minced green scallions
  1. In a mixing bowl, combine the lobster, celery and mayonnaise. Cover and refrigerate.
  2. Fill the filo cups with the lobster mixture. Sprinkle with chives and arrange on a serving platter.
