This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Mission®. All opinions are entirely my own.

Lobster Roll Tacos. Yes, you read that right. No, you’re not dreaming. We’re going full-blown fusion with this recipe today and let me tell you – it’s AMAZING.

Maybe it sounds crazy. We’re putting lobster roll filling in a tortilla? Yes, we are. A) Because we can and we should. B) Because Mission® Street Tacos Flour Tortillas are the perfect base for this situation. Soft, fluffy, and exactly the perfect size for snacking. And most importantly, we can stuff them with lobster. Mission also sent us their restaurant-style tortilla chips which I might have used to to dip extra lobster roll stuffing, and of course, salsa later on. 

You guys may already know that I have a deep love for Mission products– I might’ve mentioned that before. And you probably already know that I <3 tacos in general. But I’d bet money you don’t know what I’m about to tell you. I don’t think I’ve ever mentioned it on the blog before but… I actually care a little bit about sports. And by that, I mean I love the Patriots. 🙊

I grew up in Colts country and we’re living in Broncos territory now – I can’t really explain where my team preference came from. What I can say is that it hasn’t exactly ever been a popular opinion anywhere we’ve lived. But I can’t help it. 🙆 I’m a big fan of Tom Brady and I don’t care who knows it. That kind of statement can lead to some pretty heated discussions, but as long as there’s good food and good company, it doesn’t really matter who wins. Right? 😉

So that’s how we got here today – eating lobster roll tacos together and getting ready for the “Big Game” because New England is home of the glorious lobster roll and the Patriots are probably going to be playing. And if we’re being honest, I bet they’re going to win again. 💁

These tacos are exactly the kind of appetizer I like to eat during a game. I don’t really mess around with munchies or sweets. I like handheld food that delivers a maximum flavor party and that’s exactly what these tacos are. Miniature, street-taco-sized lobster rolls – BOOM.

  • Author: The Fitchen
  • Prep Time: 10 minutes
  • Cook Time: 12 minutes
  • Total Time: 22 minutes
  • Yield: 6 to 8 street tacos
  • Category: Appetizers

Ingredients

2 lobster tails (about 8 oz. in size)
water – enough to fill pot and allow lobster to boil comfortably
1 teaspoon sea salt
Sauce
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1/2 Tablespoon lemon juice
1/2 Tablespoon minced parsley
1/4 Tablespoon sriracha
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
pinch of cayenne
Tacos
6-8 Mission® Street Taco Flour Tortillas
1/2 cup romaine, sliced thin
1/4 cup fresh parsley

Instructions

In a large pot, bring water to a rolling boil. Add salt and lobster tails. Boil 10-12 minutes until the shells turn red.
While the lobster is cooking, make the sauce! Combine mayonnaise, lemon juice, parsley, sriracha, pepper, and cayenne in a small bowl and whisk together until smooth.
Once lobster is finished cooking, use tongs to remove them from the pot and set aside to cool.
When they’re cooled enough to handle, strip the meat from the shell. Chop roughly into 1/2″ pieces.
Add chopped lobster to a bowl and pour the sauce over. Stir together until the lobster is well-coated.
Scoop about 1/4 cup of the lobster mixture into the tortillas. Top with fresh parsley and romaine and enjoy!

    You had me at lobster rolls so, I’m sold. I am probably the greatest fan of lobster rolls so lobster tacos are an absolute must. Thanks for sharing!

    I hate hate hate the Patriots, so I feel very conflicted about this post. I think my hatred of the Patriots far outweighs my enjoyment of lobster, so instead, I’ll think about this as a delicious appetizer for a summer BBQ, rather than something remotely appropriate to serve for a football related gathering.

      Awwwwhhh… bummer! In the end, it’s all about having fun anyway – at least in my opinion!

  • Monica | Nourish & Fete

    Wow, these sound amazing! I have to admit that I’ve always found cooking lobster a bit intimidating, but I need to get over it so I can make delicious foods like this!

      I was intimidated by lobster before trying it – it’s really quite easy!

    Yum! I love lobster rolls! what a great idea to use tortillas in place of rolls.

    • thefitchen
      January 15, 2018

      Agreed! Jazzes things up a bit!

    Oh – I was introduced to lobster rolls in Maine, some years ago – loved the filling, but I was just not that fond of the bun. But doing it as a taco, now, there’s an option!

    • thefitchen
      January 15, 2018

      Dare I say it… I think tortillas are better than rolls anyway!

    Holy yum! I haven’t tried the Steet Taco Tortillas yet. They look perfect for a hearty filling like lobster. These look amazing!

    Had no idea Mission made street tacos! Lobster sounds amazing. Unfortunately, Lobster is so expensive in North Carolina. Unlike our New England, where we were raised.

      I didn’t know they did either until recently! Love the size of them though. Ah… that’s a bummer!

    I love lobster and I love tacos! Now I can have them both in the same dish. Except I follow a grain free diet so I will just put this yummy lobster in romaine leaves and have lettucewrap lobster tacos. Thank you!

    We used to have this awesome little restaurant in town that made killer lobster tacos. They closed unexpectedly one day and I have craved them so much since then! This recipe looks like it may be the perfect one to fill my lobster taco void. I can’t wait to try it!

    I was drooling over these on social media! We got a wine in our wine club shipment that has a pairing of lobster rolls and came with a recipe but it didn’t appeal to me. Now I know what I’m making to pair it with! Check to see if Valentine’s falls on a Tuesday but nope Wednesday.

  • Lobster roll tacos sound phenomenal! I think if I had these I’d want them all the time!

  • Abby @ WinsteadWandering

    I had no idea Mission made those adorable street taco tortillas! Considering my husband and I were just discussing a mutual taco craving last night, I’m pretty sure my seeing this post is fate. Now to find some good lobster!

    • thefitchen

      I didn’t know they did either but I am in LOVE with them. They’re the perfect size! Ahhhh… I read your mind! Enjoy. :)

    These tacos sound fantastic! Hubby and I haven’t missed a Taco Tuesday since February or March of 2014! We even planned our Honeymoon around our ability to get tacos! Can’t wait to add these to our taco rotation!

    This is the best idea ever to make lobster tacos. I probably woudn’t make it for a group, but for my husband and I yes!

      We rarely eat lobster either, but this is the perfect reason! Enjoy. ;)

    I’ve never seen lobster tacos anywhere, and I even grew up on the east coast where lobster was everyyyywhere. You guys got pretty crafty on this one. Great job!

      Well now you have! I know they sound unconventional… but trust me, you’ll love them! ;)
