Lobster Roll


  • 2 1/2 cups cooked, chilled lobster meat, roughly chopped – Make sure any Claw meat is left intact and set aside (we used 3 small 1lb lobsters)
  • 1/4 cup + 1 tbsp real mayonnaise
  • 1/2 tsp lemon juice (you can use more if you like but I wouldn’t go over 1 tbsp)
  • 1 celery stalk, chopped finely (cut the stalk lengthwise in 3, then chop into small cubes)
  • Pinch of pepper
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 green onion, chopped finely, set aside
  • Some iceburg lettuce leaves, washed and patted dry
  • 3 toasted sausage rolls or hot dog buns


  1. In a mixing bowl, gently combine the chopped lobster meat (except the claw meat that’s been set aside) with the mayonnaise, lemon juice, celery, salt and pepper.
  2. Put the mixing bowl into the fridge to chill for about 10 minutes.
    To assemble the Lobster Rolls:
  3. Toast the buns and butter them if desired.
  4. 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.
  5. On top of the lettuce, spoon some of the lobster meat filling.
  6. Now if you have any intact claw meat, make the sandwiches pretty by tucking in some claw meat (like in the pictures).
  7. Sprinkle some green onion slices over the sandwiches and serve.
  8. Enjoy!
