Lobster rolls are one of my favorite summer dishes.
There is something about those New England split-top hot dog buns, perfectly toasted and stuffed with mayonnaise-laden lobster salad.
A bite into the lobster roll takes me to seafood heaven!
Eating out, a lobster roll could easily cost you $20 to $25 but making it at home could save you half the money.
I spent $20 on this recipe and made 3 lobster rolls.
The key is to buy lobsters when they are on sale; I was lucky to get mine at $10 per lb!
Live lobsters give you the best flavors as the lobster flesh is juicy and succulent.
However, you can buy frozen lobster and your lobster rolls will be equally delicious.
It’s not easy to find New England style split-top hot dog buns, but you can use regular hot dog buns and just trim off both sides a little bit.
Lobster rolls are so good because the sides of the buns are coated with butter and then toasted to golden brown.
This is a must, as every bite is buttery and crusty, while the lobster transports you to a seafood shack in New England.
Ahhh, summer is so nice…enjoy!
