"In my opinion, there is just nothing better than a lobster roll made fresh. You never want to go over on the celery, chives, mayo, etc. - you don't want to add too much "filler" to retain that succulent lobster taste."

Step by Step Method

Step 1

Rinse the lobster meat and pick through for any loose shells. Drain throughly so the mayo sauce doesn't get watery. Chop or tear into large chunks and set aside.

Step 2

In a large bowl, mix the celery, mayonnaise, chives, lemon juice, lemon zest, kosher salt and ground black pepper. Taste for seasoning.

Step 3

In a large skillet over medium heat, melt 2 tablespoons of the butter and add the lobster meat. Cook, stirring for 2 minutes until warmed through and buttery all over. Use a slotted spoon to dish the lobster meat into the mayonnaise mixture and toss to coat. Discard butter and juice released from the lobster and wipe out the skillet. Melt the remaining butter in the skillet over medium heat; toast the buns on the cut sides about 2 minutes each side until golden and toasty.

Step 4

Load each bun equally with lobster meat and garnish with more chives if desired. Serve with potato chips.


No special items needed.

These were great, almost as good as the fresh ones in Bar Harbor. Once I got over the price of lobster. You can't buy lobster roll rolls here so I used hot dog buns.
