Labor day is fast approaching, but I have one last taste of summer. Lobster rolls are a great indulgence and easy to make.If you’re having a party or just want to treat yourself before fall arrives, put together this easy lobster roll recipe.
- Five lbs cooked lobster meat
- 8 oz Mayonnaise
- 4 oz green onions
- 4 oz celery,finely diced
- Freshly ground black pepper
- Cayenne pepper to taste (optional)
- New England Hot Dog Rolls
- Melted Butter
The first step of a succulent lobster roll is properly cooking the lobster. If you choose to boil, remember you need to flavor the water. Add lemon juice as well as the lemon itself, bay leaves, and salt to the water and boil the lobster for 15 minutes. Once your lobster has cooled, pull out the meat and cut it up into bite sized chunks.
In a medium bowl, combine the mayonnaise, green onions, and celery. Gently toss the lobster with the mayonnaise mixture. Set aside.
Brush the melted butter onto the buns and toast until lightly browned. Fill the buns with the lobster mixture and top with a few cracks of black pepper and a pinch of cayenne.
