A New England classic, the lobster roll is a great way to enjoy in-season Québec crustaceans. Some people are fans of the traditional recipe—a hot-dog bun stuffed with lobster meat, mayonnaise, celery and lemon juice—while others prefer mixing in curry, Tabasco sauce or fresh herbs.
For a fresh and festive 5 à 7, swap the classic charcuterie and cheese platter for salmon rillettes. Given that there are so many recipe variations to choose, opt for whatever you have in your kitchen: cream cheese, yogourt, mustard, capers, chives, dill or lemon juice. Plus, it’s a great way to use leftover cooked salmon!
A new all-natural ready-to-drink beverage, Romeo’s Gin Fizz combines Québec’s own Romeo’s gin with fresh flavours of cucumber and lemon. Just like spring itself, this drink promises to be cool and refreshing—and it pairs perfectly with salmon rillettes.
Northern shrimp is a very popular springtime staple. Delicious in salads, spring rolls, sandwiches, as a canapé or simply tossed in a bit of lime juice, Québec shrimp is loved for its delicate flavour and tender texture.
For an elegant entrée, serve your shrimp-stuffed avocado with a glass of sparkling wine. We recommend Luxembourg’s Bernard-Massard, Cuvée de l’Écusson, a refreshing bubbly with notes of toasted almonds, citrus and pear.
