Lobster Rolls

Mini lobster rolls make the perfect passed appetizers for any party, and these ones, with a slight Japanese flair, are particularly good. Look for Kewpie Mayo, yuzu, sansho pepper, and micro shiso at your local Asian market.

¼ bottle Kewpie Mayo

50 grams lime zest and juice

50 grams yuzu

360 grams butter

salt and pepper to taste

3. Divide lobster mixture between 25 brioche rolls and finish each one with a dusting of sansho pepper and some micro shiso leaves.
