Legal Sea Food's Lobster Roll
Legal Sea Foods

The best lobsters are harvested from the icy cold waters of the North Atlantic. At Legal Sea Foods, we intentionally include all the meat — the tail, claws and knuckles in the lobster roll — because it offers the full experience of a lobster and delivers the different flavors and textures of the meat. I use a light dressing to complement the lobster, not overpower or detract from it.  What makes it ideal is the combination of the lobster's sweetness, the brininess from the sea, creamy mayo, crunchy celery, and a warm toasted bun. It's quintessential New England comfort food.

Deliver Ingredients


  • 1 1/4 Pound cooked lobster meat
  • 4 Teaspoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1/4 Cup sliced green onions
  • 1/4 Cup diced celery
  • 1/2 Cup mayonnaise
  • Kosher salt and black pepper, to taste
  • Butter, as needed
  • 4 leaves red or green leaf lettuce
  • 4 hot dog rolls


Gently fold the first 5 ingredients together and season lightly with salt and pepper. Lightly brush the hot dog rolls on each side with butter. Place on a griddle or grill and toast until golden brown. Line each roll with a leaf of lettuce and divide the lobster salad evenly among each roll.  

Lobster Roll Shopping Tip

Seafood shopping is quite easy in the general sense. Rule of thumb: if it smells fishy, don't buy. Fresh seafood should smell mild and more like the ocean and sea water rather than fish.

Lobster Roll Cooking Tip

When boiling lobster, add some fresh lemon wedges, a bay leaf, and black peppercorns in the water to develop another layer of flavor.

Lobster Roll Wine Pairing

Most white wines (especially albariño) and rosé with most fish dishes. Muscadet, sancerre, or New Zealand sauvignon blanc with cold fish dishes; chardonnay, pinot gris/grigio, or pinot blanc with grilled or roasted fish; sauvignon blanc or gewürztraminer with baked fish; grüner veltliner with fish pâté; vintage or non-vintage champagne or sparkling wine with light fish dishes; fino or manzanilla with small fried fish; junmai, junmai-ginjo, or junmai-daiginjo with teriyaki fish.
