Somehow Buffalo Wings became the staple meal for the Big Game. And while lobster seems like an expensive, once in a while special treat, the price has come down lately so the price per serving of this recipe is quite reasonable.
This is a simple and yummy meal that’s ready in minutes. These are best served on top sliced frankfurter rolls just like is done in Maine . Look for these top sliced rolls at a grocer carrying Pepperidge Farms bakery goods.
The buns are baked so they are warm. Add the cold lobster salad mix into the hot buns and serve immediately. The contrast of the warm bun with the cold lobster is part of the experience in eating this dish.
Here’s what you’ll need to make these Lobster Rolls:
- A package of 8 top-sliced frankfurter rolls†
- 3 cups cooked, chopped lobster meat††
- 1/2 cup chopped celery stalks
- 1/2 to 3/4 cup Mayonnaise
- 1/2 tsp McCormick Basil Leaves
- 1/2 tsp McCormick Parsley Flakes
- 1/4 cup finely chopped green onion tops (green parts only)
- Lemon juice
- Salt and Pepper
- Hot Sauce such as Sriracha Hot Sauce
- Preheat your over to 400 degrees F.
- Split open the frankfurter rolls and butter lightly.
- Bake the frankfurter rolls until lightly browned.
- Combine the remaining ingredients to form a lobster salad and mix well. Season with salt, pepper, hot sauce and lemon juice to taste.
- Evenly distribute the prepared lobster salad mix into the 8 buns.
† You may substitute side sliced rolls if unable to find top sliced frankfurter rolls.
†† Because the lobster salad is served cold, this meal turns out equally well with fresh cooked lobster, store cooked lobster or frozen cooked lobster meat from the grocers frozen food section. The latter frozen lobster is a cheat that saves a few steps in making this recipe.
