Why I Love This Recipe

You will need to steam three 1 1/4 pound lobsters to yield one pound of usable meat

Ingredients You'll Need

1 cup quality mayonnaise
1 pound cooked lobster meat, diced 1/2 inch thick (see note)
1/2 cup celery, small dice
1 pinch chopped fresh tarragon
1 pinch celery salt
1 teaspoon fresh squeezed lemon juice
6 top-split hot dog rolls
2 tablespoons unsalted butter, at room temperature


Place the lobster meat in a mixing bowl. Add 3/4 cup of the mayonnaise, the celery, tarragon, celery salt and lemon juice. Toss well.

Spread the soft butter lightly on the hot dog rolls and toast them in a large flat skillet over medium heat until lightly browned. Once toasted, spread the remaining 1/4 cup of the mayonnaise inside the warm rolls.

Using a small spoon, gently place the lobster in the rolls, being careful not to break them. Serve immediately
