Ideas for interesting sides / apps for a lobster cookout?
Having a lobster cookout at my house next weekend for some friends from the city (NYC). Trying to think of interesting sides / apps rather than just corn on the cob. Maybe grill small lamb chops first? Any suggestions would be great! thank you!

I would not have thought to start with lamb, but am rather partial to these: https://food52.com/recipes/21918-szechuan-lambypops-with-cilantro-chimichurri.
And finally, lobster and crab are both great with miso butter noodles. We have tried and tried to recreate the garlic noodles from Crustacean in SF. This is the closest we have come: https://food52.com/recipes/17521-crab-with-miso-butter-sauce and it reminded me of David Chang's Potatoes & Clams in Bacon Dashi which would also be an awesome side dish.
And don't forget to save all the lobster bodies for stock!!! It took me a whole day last summer to cook stock after our lobster fest, but it was so worth it to have lobster stock in the freezer.
