Lobster Mix

  • 8 oz Lobster meat claw and knuckle
  • 2-3 tbsp Mayonnaise
  • White Pepper pinch
  • Kosher Salt pinch
  • 2 tbsp Celery peeled and diced


  • 2 New England style hotdog rolls
  • 1 tbsp Mayonnaise or soft butter to grill
  • Green leaf lettuce
  • Chopped Chives to garnish (optional)
  • Wedge of Lemon to garnish (optional)


  • Tear lobster meat into bite-size pieces, about 1cups worth (be generous!)
  • Add lobster meat, mayonnaise, white pepper, salt, and celery to a large bowl.
    Mix well and chill in the refrigerator until ready to use.
  • Spread a layer of mayonnaise or butter onto both sides of 2 rolls. Place on a pan or griddle over medium heat & grill each side until golden brown.
  • Time to assemble! Start by placing a piece of green leaf lettuce in the roll as a base. Divide the lobster mixture evenly between rolls.
  • (Optional) Garnish with chopped chives and a squeeze of fresh lemon.
  • Serve immediately with potato chips (or whatever floats your boat)!
