A few weeks ago I grabbed a bite at Lenny’s clam bar with my husband and daughter and we ordered the special – the chipotle lobster avocado burrito. It was SOOO good I HAD to recreate a lighter version of it myself.

I don’t eat lobster often because it’s not cheap, but I love it and like to treat myself once in a while, especially in the summer. I went to my local fish market and bought a 2 pound lobster and had them steam it for me (I personally don’t love cooking live lobsters). All the fish markets near me steam them for you for the same price as buying it live. This yielded enough lobster meat for 4 servings.

Then I tossed the lobster with lemon juice, a little light mayo and yogurt to make it creamy and added some chipotle peppers in adobo sauce to give it a little kick. Tossed in some chopped scallion and fresh cilantro and the lobster salad was delicious.

I wrapped it on a whole wheat tortilla with avocado and lettuce (you can lower the carbs and make it gluten free by turning this into a lettuce wrap) and had myself a fabulous lunch over a bed of greens.

    I made these last night and used chopped shrimp and crab with the lobster. I loved it!! I made so much I couldnt finish it at all. I used more fattening ingedients like sour cream instead of the greek yogurt 🙁 but it worked! LOVE

  2. I made this for my lunch and it was great. Lobster is way too expensive for me, so I substituted mock crab legs. I don't know what the original should be like, but this was very tasty!! I don't have a lot of time to create lunches as I have to eat on the fly, so I put the avocado right in the mixture. Yummy. I will definitely make this again.

    I made this for dinner tonight with crab instead of lobster. Really good! Only thing I would have done differently was cut back on the mayo (or measure it better haha!), it was a little too creamy for me.

    Thanks!

  5. I made this last night for one. I had a 1 1/3 lb. lobster steamed for me. Made the whole recipe, but used 1/2 of the dressing (the other 1/2 is in the fridge waiting to be used!). It was delicious and very filling! My only suggestion is to taste the chipotle in adobo first…mine was more spicy than expected and overpowered the lobster a little. I "suffered through" though! Yum!

    I made this as a treat for my husband and I this afternoon and it was everything that I had hoped it would be! I love the spiciness in the chipotle and the subtle sweetness in the lobster. The texture of the avocado was a wonderful addition! We honestly loved it!

    I made this tonight and it was wonderful. The only problem is that for us, it was more like two servings because we couldn't stop ourselves. And if there was no one looking, I could eat the whole thing by myself. Super yummy! Worth every penny.

  9. oh my god these look absolutely delicious!

    i am totally making these this weekend, thank you for the recipe!!

    I made these today for lunch with shrimp instead of lobster because that's what I had on hand. They are absolutely delicious!!! The perfect combination of creamy and spicy with a hint of lemon. So good! I will be making these again this week!

    Good heavens. I keep coming back just to look at that picture of the lobster on the cutting board. Makes me so stupidly hungry it's ridiculous but I can't stop looking at it, I just want to reach through the monitor and steal a bite. I need a lobster craving intervention!

  13. Yum! Wow there are very few recipes that just make me want to go make right at this moment and but you have definitely done it with this one. These look amazing! Avocado and lobster, absolute genius! Now I just have to brave enough courage to buy/cook lobster. I like your idea of having them steam it for you though- much less intimidating! ha
