A big pot of boiling lobsters always draws a crowd, and when I demoed this at SoBe, that was no exception. When you’re making a lobster roll, the fewer the ingredients, the better and more authentic your sandwich will be. Some people prefer to add just mayonnaise or melted butter, but a sprinkling of fresh herbs can be delicious — just nothing too strong like rosemary or thyme. Fresh lemon juice is also a great addition. Not only is lobster meat utterly delicious, it’s low-calorie and very nutritious. Butter the buns on the outside (the Maine way), toast them in a skillet, and load them up. The more meat you put in, the more popular you’ll be.

Directions

Stir the lobster, mayonnaise, and herbs (if using) together in a large bowl. Add the lemon juice, and season with salt and pepper to taste. Cover and refrigerate the salad for up to 2 hours.

Lightly brush the outsides of the buns with the butter, and cook on a hot griddle or in a heavy skillet until golden brown, about 1½ minutes per side.

Spoon about ½ cup of the lobster mixture into each bun, and serve immediately.
