Then we had to get in line buy tokens to use to purchase food from the food trucks. Not a good start. However we soldiered on. Most of the trucks had very long line-ups to buy food.
I have no idea what this truck featured the line-up was so long we could not get close enough to read the menu:
Other than that I noticed that the trucks with the simplest foods had the longest line-ups:
|Hot Dogs and Sausages|
menu on line when we got home. Very extensive. Especially for a truck that is located in Phoenix - I wonder where the lobster comes from. I think her main feature is lobster rolls.
Lobster rolls are a specialty of mine and I would have liked to try them but I am guessing the line up was at least an hour long.
Not our most successful festival so instead of sharing a recipe from one of the food trucks here's my lobster roll recipe:
1/3 cup butter
2 garlic cloves, crushed
6 soft-sided hot dog buns (the kind you have to pull apart)
1 lb lobster meat chopped
2 tbsp mayonnaise
¼ cup diced celery
salt and pepper
1 cup (about) shredded iceburg lettuce
Melt the butter and add the garlic cloves. Let sit for a while so the garlic flavours the butter.
Brush the garlic butter on both sides of the hot dog buns and grill them on both sides. You could also brown them in a heavy frying pan on the stove top.
In a bowl mix the lobster meat, mayonnaise, celery and salt andpepper to taste. Open your grilled bun and line the bottom with iceberg lettuce than spoon the lobster mixture onto the center of the hot dog bun and serve.
