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.
- 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.
