Secret to Great Tasting Lobster Rolls

It all starts with fresh  caught Maine lobsters. Boil several lobsters, then let them cool.  Crack open the lobsters and use the best meat: tail and claws.  Don’t forget the knuckles for our lobster rolls, it’s the sweetest part part of the lobstah!

Here is what you will need:

  • 5 or 6 lobsters
  • 3 heaping tablespoons of Hellmann’s or Cains mayonnaise
  • 2 sticks of celery chopped finely
  • 2 dashes of sea salt or kosher salt
  • dash of pepper
  • 1 dash of paprika
  • New England style hot dog rolls
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted

1. Mix all ingredients, except the butter and hot dog rolls; keep chilled until ready to use.

2. Brush unsalted butter on each side of hot dog roll and grill in pan or on barbecue.

3. Split the hot dog rolls (but not all the way through the bread) and fill with the lobster mix.

Serve with chips, pickle slice and coleslaw. Best to enjoy outside on a beautiful day!
