Goose Cove and Bass-Terre are the very Best of Maine and one of the most beautiful and relaxing places in the world. What a place. We stayed there for one week, and had one of the most memorable vacations ever. It was hard to tear ourselves away from the deck, with its gorgeous view and lovely breezes. Even at night; the stars are spectacular. When we did leave the deck, we went hiking, biking and kayaking and eagle spotting, all within minutes of this home. We went to Bar Harbor as well, but couldn't wait to get back to the Quiet Side and our vacation home. We like to cook and have had some great meals. Please, enjoy my recipe of the Lobster salad we had for breakfast on our last day.
- 1 live lobster, about 1 1/2 lb.
- 1 cup cooked fresh corn (or 1/2 can corn)
- 1 small onions, chopped
- 1 Tbsp. capers
- 2 Tbsp. mayonnaise
- 1 tsp Champagne or white wine vinegar
- 1 tsp mustard
- 1 1/2 Tbs. chopped fresh tarragon
- Salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
- Organic, free range eggs - scrambled
Bring a large pot three-fourths full of salted water to a boil over high heat. Add the lobster, headfirst. Cover and cook until the lobster is red, about 7 minutes. Transfer the lobster to a large bowl filled with ice water and let cool completely. Remove the meat from the claws, knuckles and tail, and discard the shells. Cut the meat into 1/2-inch pieces.
In a small bowl, whisk together the mayonnaise, vinegar, mustard, tarragon, salt and pepper until smooth and blended.
In the medium bowl, combine the lobster meat with corn, onions, capers and mayonnaise mixture and gently toss to coat the lobster and vegetables evenly. Serve on the toast with organic scrambled eggs.
Have a good breakfast!
