Lobster Rolls are a quintessential New England creation and tied to Maine thanks to the state's multitude of these delicious crustaceans.
4 cups cooked, chilled, and chopped lobster meat
1/2 cup mayonnaise
2 celery ribs, finely chopped
1/2 teaspoon lemon zest
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon hot sauce
2 tablespoons butter, softened
4 top-loading hot dog buns
2 teaspoons chopped fresh chives
1/4 teaspoon cracked black pepper
How to Make It
Combine first 7 ingredients in a large bowl. Cover and chill until ready to serve.
Spread butter on buns; press buns open, and place, buttered sides down, in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Cook until golden brown. Fill buns with lobster mixture, and sprinkle with chives and cracked black pepper.
