Best Lobster Rolls Recipe

Lobster rolls bring back memories of visits to Maine and Nova Scotia. Lightly seasoned tender lobster meat in a soft grilled roll. I'm shamelessly calling this the best lobster rolls recipe!

  • 1 cup chopped cooked cold lobster meat (from about two 1-1 1/2 pound lobsters; about 4 oz cooked meat per person
  • 3 tablespoon mayonnaise (make sure it's real; light is ok too)
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice (or more to taste)
  • 1/4 cup celery, diced small
  • 1 tablespoon fresh parsley, finely chopped
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 hot dog rolls, split
  • softened butter


  • PREPARE LOBSTER FILLING: Mix lobster meat, mayonnaise, lemon juice, celery, parsely, salt and pepper in a bowl. Set aside or put in fridge covered until ready to use.
  • PREPARE THE ROLLS: Heat a skillet to medium. Spread butter on both sides of each hot dog roll. Grill the rolls in the skillet on each side until golden brown.
  • ASSEMBLE: Divide lobster mixture between the rolls. Serve immediately with pickles or chips or fries or whatever you want.


Make Ahead: The lobster salad can be made a couple hours ahead. Just before serving, make the buns and add the lobster salad.
