How to Make It

Step 1

Immerse lobsters in rapidly boiling water. Cook about 7 to 10 minutes or until done. Plunge lobsters in ice water for 10 minutes to stop cooking, and cool thoroughly; drain. Separate tail and claws from the body; discard body. Crack shells, and remove meat, discarding shells and cartilage. Chop meat into 1/2-inch pieces.

Step 2

Combine lobster, mayonnaise, and next 4 ingredients. Cover and chill until ready to serve.

Step 3

Melt butter in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Press open buns, and place in skillet, turning to coat both sides. Cook buns until golden brown on both sides.

Step 4

Fill bun with lobster filling, and sprinkle with chopped chives, if desired. Serve with shoestring French fries and baby lettuce, if desired.
