Lobster Roll

Lobster rolls are common fare in Boston and pretty much anywhere in the state of Maine where lobster fishing is common. In the summer, many restaurants sell lobster rolls as their specialty--you can even buy them at McDonalds! The recipe below is extremely simple and freshly steamed lobster is the absolute best for this recipe. These lobster rolls are my favorite.

INGREDIENTS (makes 1 roll)

  • 1/2 cup cooked Maine Lobster (fresh is best), cut into large chunks
  • 1/2 tablespoon Hellmann's mayonnaise
  • 1/4 teaspoon yellow mustard
  • pinch salt
  • 1 lettuce leaf
  • 1 small "top-loading" hot dog bun
  • Dash of paprika (optional)
  1. Mix together lobster, mayonnaise, mustard and salt.
  2. Spread the lettuce leaf on the bottom of the hot dog bun.
  3. Spread lobster over lettuce. Sprinkle a little paprika over lobster and enjoy!
