Why don't my Pearl-recipe lobster rolls taste like Pearl Oyster Bar lobster rolls?

GDSwamp | Aug 20, 2010 07:48 AM

Rebecca Charles's lobster-roll recipe is all over the internet, and it's very simple. But when I make lobster rolls at home they don't approach a Pearl roll's deliciousness. I'm a pretty good home cook, can steam or boil a lobster, can toast a roll, can mince a celery rib. My lobster salad never attains the balance of sweet and briny, nor the rich, never-watery texture of Pearl's...

I wonder if there's a secret ingredient, a secret technique, or some other tiny missing tidbit that makes Pearl's rolls so transcendently good and mine so so-so.

Any ideas anyone?
