One of the world's most luscious sandwiches, the lobster roll is an affordable way to stretch and enjoy this premium ingredient. The humble hot dog bun is traditional here, an important component that won't upstage the star. You can make the mayo-based lobster filling up to a day ahead and keep it refrigerated until just before serving.
5 tablespoons canola mayonnaise
1/4 cup finely chopped celery
3 tablespoons minced onion
2 tablespoons whole milk Greek-style yogurt (such as Fage)
Combine first 7 ingredients in a medium bowl, stirring well. Add lobster to mayonnaise mixture; toss. Cover and chill 1 hour.
Brush butter evenly over cut sides of buns. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Place buns, cut sides down, in pan; cook 2 minutes or until toasted. Line each bun with 1 lettuce leaf; top with 1/3 cup lobster mixture.
These were delicious!!! I cut the recipe in half but didn't make any other changes. Don't omit the fresh dill or grilling the buns as directed. This was better than the lobster roll I just had in Massachusetts! A definite keeper!
This is a good summer treat. I used shrimp since lobster is so expensive (2 lb uncooked with shell). I had tried another recipe, which asked for more yogurt and it was too tangy. This recipe was not tangy enough, so for the next time I will use 1/4 Cup mayonnaise and 1/4 Cup Greek yogurt.
This receipe was delicious, even with a few changes. To cut costs, I subbed 1 pound shrimp. To cut fat, I used 2% fat greek yogurt. Red onion also added a little color. The recipe is extremely simple and quick if you don't have to shell the lobster or peel and devein the shrimp. Would be a great summer lunch! Served with a spinach, goat cheese, strawberries, and pine nut salad with balsamic. Yum!
These rolls were very flavorful. Prep time was a bit consuming, only because of the extra time to cook and clean the lobsters. I halved the recipe and used 2 1lb. lobsters. This produced exactly 2 overstuffed sandwiches. Also, used a splash more cayenne and onions than called for. Served on fresh made buns with a side Strawberry-Basil Balsamic Salad. Very tasty!!
