Lobster sushi salad

I love sushi, but sometimes I am just too lazy to bother rolling and cutting those tasty little bites together. This sushi salad is the perfect way to satisfy your sushi craving and save a little time in the process.  I am very new to boiling lobsters (my husband still has to throw them into the boiling water for me), so I followed this persons advice.  I cooked the lobster in advance and let it cool down before removing the meat from the shell. I also cooked the rice in advance and let it cool down. There are a million and one ways to do this type of sushi salad this is just my way of doing it.
