Yield 8 servings (serving size: 1 sandwich)
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.

Ingredients

  • 5 tablespoons canola mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped celery
  • 3 tablespoons minced onion
  • 2 tablespoons whole milk Greek-style yogurt (such as Fage)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons chopped fresh dill
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground red pepper
  • 1 pound cooked lobster meat, cut into bite-sized pieces (about 3 (1 1/2-pound) lobsters)
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 8 (1 1/2-ounce) hot dog buns
  • 8 Bibb lettuce leaves
