Ingredients

For the Old Bay crema: 

  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 teaspoon Old Bay® seasoning 
  • 1 teaspoon paprika

For the lobster & bacon filling:

  • 1 pound thick-cut bacon
  • 1 pound cooked knuckle and claw Maine lobster meat, roughly chopped
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 8 small corn tortillas, warmed
  • 2 cups finely shredded green cabbage
  • 2 medium Haas avocados, pitted peeled and sliced 

Instructions

For the Old Bay crema: 

  • In a medium mixing bowl whisk together the sour cream, mayonnaise, Old Bay, paprika and 2 tablespoons of water until combined. Cover and refrigerate until ready to use. 

For the lobster & bacon filling: 

  • Add the bacon to a large non-stick skillet. Heat over medium heat, cooking until the bacon fat is rendered and the bacon is crispy, about 5 minutes. Use a slotted spoon to remove the bacon to a paper towel lined plate.
  • In a medium bowl gently mix together the lobster, butter and cooked bacon until combined.
  • Top each tortilla with a small handful of the cabbage and top with a scoop of the lobster and bacon. Top with slices of avocado and drizzle with the old bay crema. Serve immediately.
