New England Lobster Rolls

Nothing fancy: just fresh lobster, a little mayo, and some herbs, all served on a soft hot dog bun. Got to love it!

  • Prep Time: 30 minutes, plus time needed to cook the lobsters
  • Total Time: 45 minutes
  • Yield: 4 servings


  • 4 hot dog buns
  • 4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, melted
  • 1/3 cup mayonnaise, homemade or good-quality store-bought
  • 2 teaspoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped celery
  • 1 tablespoon minced shallot
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh tarragon leaves
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh parsley leaves
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh chives
  • 1 pound freshly cooked lobster tail and claw meat, cubed (from two 1 3/4-pound lobsters)
  • Potato chips, for serving


  • Preheat the grill or broiler.

  • Using a pastry brush, spread the inside and outside of each bun with the melted butter. Grill or broil the buns quickly to warm them through. Set the buns aside.

  • Combine the mayonnaise, lemon juice, and salt in a bowl, and mix well. Fold in the celery, shallot, tarragon, parsley, and chives. Then fold in the lobster meat. Place 1 bun on each plate, and divide the lobster salad evenly among the buns.

  • Serve immediately, with potato chips alongside.
