Lobster Roll

A traditional lobster roll is a sandwich filled with lobster meat soaked in butter and served on a steamed hot dog bun or similar roll, so that the opening is on the top rather than on the side. There are variations of this sandwich made in other parts of New England, which may contain diced celery or spring onion, and mayonnaise. The sandwich may also contain lettuce, lemon juice, salt and black pepper.

Lobster Roll
A delicious sandwich roll filled with chunks of cooked lobster mixed with a coating of lemony mayo and a few other optional ingredients. New England street-food at its best.
Cuisine: New England
Recipe type: Seafood
Serves: 6 Rolls
  • 500 g cooked lobsters
  • ⅓ cup mayonnaise
  • ¾ tablespoon lemon juice
  • 2 stalks celery, stringed and finely diced
  • 2 spring onions, finely diced (optional)
  • shredded lettuce
  • pinch of cayenne pepper (plus extra to serve)
  • 1 - 2 tablespoons melted butter
  • 6 hot dog buns
  • snipped chives (optional)
  1. Crack the lobster, remove all the meat, cut it into large chunks and set aside. (Lobster shells can be kept to make a lobster stock.)
  2. Mix the mayonnaise with the lemon juice, celery, cayenne and a small pinch of salt, then fold the lobster through to combine. Taste and adjust the seasoning. (If eating straight away leave at room temperature, otherwise chill for up to 1 day in advance.)
  3. To serve, split the rolls (on top is best), line with shredded lettuce, and divide the lobster mix between the rolls. Scatter with chives (if using).
  4. Serve with fries and sliced gherkin.
