Last weekend, I co-hosted a retreat in the Hampton's with Lexi and Liz for a group of 15 people, including myself. One of the restaurants we lunched at was Union Cantina in South Hampton, where we enjoyed lots of salsa, guacamole, ceviche, tacos, sangria and more! So much great food, with a great staff and fun atmosphere.

Everything on the menu was wonderful, but these lobster tacos took the prize! So fresh, and light, with just a hint of spice in the cream, I loved them and had to get the recipe. The chef at Union Cantina was kind enough to share, which I modified slightly for the home cook.

I have access to fresh lobster here on Long Island, but if that's not an option by you, you can use lump crab meat instead. Hope you enjoy!!
