What is summer with out a Lobster Roll…I recently made these Bon Appetit Ultimate Lobster Rolls for a friend’s bbq and everyone said they were the BEST they have ever tasted. FUN TIP: I actually ended up making minis as an appetizer and cut the rolls in half. YUMMMM ENJOY!!!!!
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.
