  • 2 ½ cups cooked, chilled lobster meat, roughly chopped – claw, tail and knuckle meat are all great
  • ¼ cup real mayonnaise
  • 3 tbsps melted butter, cooled to room temperature
  • juice of ½ a lemon
  • zest of 1 lemon
  • 1 celery stalk, chopped finely (cut the stalk lengthwise in 3, then chop into very small cubes)
  • 1 green onion, only use the green parts – slice very thinly, then chop very finely
  • Pinch of pepper
  • Pinch of salt
  • Optional: Some iceburg lettuce leaves, washed and patted dry
  • 3 toasted sausage rolls or top cut hot dog buns


  1. In a mixing bowl, gently combine the chopped lobster meat with the mayonnaise, melted butter, lemon juice, lemon zest, celery, green onion, salt and pepper.
  2. Put the mixing bowl into the fridge to chill for about 10 minutes.

How To assemble Lobster Rolls:

  1. Toast the buns and butter them if desired. Top cut hot dog buns are great toasted and buttered for lobster rolls!
  2. Optional: Into each bun, place some lettuce leaves. I like to make a little boat shape with the leaves when I place them into the buns, so that the lobster meat filling stays inside better. If you don’t line your bun with lettuce, that’s ok! I enjoy them either way!
  3. On top of the lettuce or inside of the bun, spoon some of the lobster meat filling.
  4. Serve right away and enjoy!
