My absolute favorite dish at SoundWaves at Gaylord Opryland is their Lobster Roll. So when their chefs said they’d create a Lobster Roll Dip recipe for The Sami Cone Show, I almost died. It’s the perfect dip for tailgating or simply snacking on yourself.
Why I Love this Lobster Roll Dip Recipe
Let me be clear: I don’t think I’d ever eaten a Lobster Roll before my SoundWaves experience. To be honest, I don’t typically like dishes like this that are known to have more mayonnaise than main ingredient. But at first glance, I could tell this sandwich was different.
I mean look at it…can’t you see all the chunks of lobster? And it literally overflows from the carefully selected rolls, instead of the other way around. So while I may not have tried a Maine Lobster Roll or lobster rolls from New England, I can confidently say, the SoundWaves Lobster Roll recipe is one of the best.
So what happens when you just want lobster roll goodness without a sandwich? You make lobster roll dip!
On my second episode of The Sami Cone Show, Chef Michael Coyle joined us from SoundWaves, where summer never ends and is the perfect place for fall getaways. He demonstrated this recipe from SoundWaves inspired by fun in the sun destinations.
How to Make the Lobster Roll Dip
Making Lobster Roll Dip is not anywhere near as daunting as I thought it might be! Chef Michael Coyle from SoundWaves explained you can even find cooked and chopped lobster meat at your local grocery store (it’s probably best to by frozen).
I also appreciate the tangy zing the Greek Yogurt brings. While we didn’t learn the full ingredient list of the famous Opryland BBQ seasoning, we did learn a secret. If you buy BBQ seasoning, make it sweeter by adding a bit of brown sugar.
- 1 Lemon (juice of)
- ½ C Mayonnaise
- ½ C Greek Yogurt
- 1 lb. Lobster Meat (steamed, chilled and diced)
- 1 C Celery (diced)
- 2 T Parsley (chopped)
- 2 T Chives (chopped)
- ½ t Opryland BBQ Spice
- Salt and Pepper to taste
In a large bowl combine Lemon Juice, Mayonnaise, and Greek Yogurt until smooth and evenly mixed.
Fold in remaining ingredients and season to taste.
Serve Chilled with Chips or Bread (preference would Hawaiian rolls or something with similar sweet undertones)
You can buy lobster meat that has already been cooked & diced if you don't want to cook a lobster at home.
As you see, there was no way to hide my passion about this dip. (And yes, I did share after the segment is over). I promise it will be the hit at your next party or tailgate.
You can choose to serve it on a smaller version of the traditional roll, or make it a little looser by adding more yogurt to serve with chips or fresh veggies.
SoundWaves During the Holidays
The holidays are only a month away and yes, SoundWaves will be open during A Country Christmas this year. In fact, SoundWaves plays a big part of Christmas at Opryland. Beginning November 8, not only can you see the famous Opryland Christmas light, you can book a Chill & Thrill package that includes a room, ICE and SoundWaves.
Even though the outdoor SoundWaves water features closed for the season at the end of September, SoundWaves indoor attractions are open year-round, where the temperature is always 84 degrees. And don’t forget your sunscreen because you can sunbathe indoors too!
With 5 indoor slides, FlowRider, lazy and rapids river, and adults-only areas, there is truly something for everyone. And if you’re still looking for a Fall Break trip, Fall Getaways are on sale now, and they even have Davidson County and Tennessee resident offers available.
