Summer's Ultimate Lobster Rolls

Warm, toasty, buttered rolls are key. If you can't find New England-style buns, trim 1/4-inch from both sides of standard hot dog buns to remove the crust and expose more surface area.

  • Kosher salt
  • 3 1 1/4-pound live Lobsters
  • 1 celery stalk, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh chives
  • 2-3 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 6 New England-style split-top hot dog buns
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, room temperature

Pour water into a large pot to a depth of 1 inch; bring to a boil and salt generously. Add Lobsters, cover, and cook until bright red, 8-10 minutes. Transfer Lobsters to a rimmed baking sheet and let cool.

Crack Lobster shells, pick meat from tail and claws, and cut into 1/2-inch pieces. Mix Lobster, celery, lemon juice, chives, and 2 tablespoons mayonnaise in a medium bowl; season with salt and pepper and add more mayonnaise, if desired.

Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Spread flat sides of buns with butter. Cook until golden, about 2 minutes per side; fill with Lobster mixture.


Lobster meat can be prepared 1 day ahead. Cover and chill. Toss with remaining ingredients just before serving.
