Summer Night Dinner: Lobster Napoleon

by | Aug 23, 2015 | Blog, From the Kitchen | 0 comments

This is my take on the Lobster Napoleon served at the Blue Water Grill in Skaneateles. It is simply and totally customizable!


Red onion: small and diced

Avocado: peeled and pitted

Watercress: washed and dried

Yellow tomato: diced into bite sized pieces

Mango or strawberry: diced into bite sized pieces

Lobster: 2 1-1 1/4 steamed lobsters; cleaned and dices into small pieces

Sriracha Mayonnaise, or a spicy mayonnaise if you cannot find this. I found it at the Coop in Niskayuna.

Low Sodium Soy Sauce


I am not sure what you call them but I use these small stainless steel cylinders.  They are used for food prep and are about 3 inches high and 3-4 inches in diameter. I used 4 of them for this recipe. These house the Napoleons as you build them.

Start with the watercress as layer one.  Then continue to build the layers in the cylinder using the lobster last and topping with the avocado.  Lightly and gently salt and pepper.  Cover with wrap and refrigerate 1-2 hours so it solidifies.

To prepare your plate squeeze the Sriracha Mayo in lines on the plate as desired.  Next drizzle the soy sauce.

Now gently push out the bottom of the cylinders and place the Napoleons on the plate.  Garnish with watercress and Mango pieces. (or strawberry if you used that.)

Serve with a lovely chilled Sancerre!

About Me

KarenHello and welcome.
I am often asked, “What is Pasta on the Floor?”
Pasta on the Floor is different for everyone. It is a recipe that tells a story and inspires them to try something new. For others, stories of family, joy, loss, and hope engage with them. This brings me a great deal of happiness. I do not take myself too seriously, so be forewarned the subject matter is open and truthful. In many ways, Pasta is a tale of life, and I think you will find familiarity and commonality as you scroll through these pages.
