Lobster rolls

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.

Salmon bites

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!

Québec shrimp

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.
