Lobster rolls are iconic summertime sandwiches in the Northeast. They are popularly found in New England and make for a great addition to a surf and turf lunch. Here's a great recipe to get you started.
- 1 1/2 pounds cooked and cubed lobster meat
- 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
- 1 teaspoon fresh lime juice
- 1 dash hot pepper sauce
- 2 green onions, chopped
- 1 stalk celery, finely chopped
- salt and pepper to taste
To get the lobster ready, you'll want to start off making it similar to a chicken or tuna salad. Stir together mayonnaise, lime juice, hot pepper sauce, salt, and pepper until it's well mixed. Next, add in onion and celery. Finally, slowly and carefully mix in your lobster (I like nice big chunks, but that's obviously up to preference) and be careful to not stir too hard so the lobster doesn't fall apart.
Serve with a buttered and toasted bun. If you're going to be making a few of these that may sit in the bun for a while, use lettuce leaves to line the inside of the bun and fill with the lobster mixture. This will make the presentation look better and prevent the roll from getting soggy.
Top with a pinch of dried basil, parsley, or tarragon for a little extra flavor and enjoy!
