When the lobster season arrives we are so happy that it often happens that we cook more than what we need for a meal. We can therefore extend the pleasure of enjoying it by preparing the leftover in lobster rolls and why not this Asian style salad. You can also prepare it with frozen cooked lobster the rest of the year.

The salad can be prepared in advance and assembled just before serving. The dressing, cooked noodles, lobster and chestnuts can be reserved for 2 to 4 hours in the refrigerator.

You can boil the lobster or cook it in the Instant Pot.
