Lobster Rolls:

2 (2-pound) lobsters

1 tablespoon sweet butter

4 hot dog buns

1 stalk celery, minced

3/4 cup lemon mayonnaise

1 tablespoon fresh tarragon, minced

Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Make the lemon mayonnaise by mixing all ingredients, and let sit in refrigerator for at least one hour. Steam lobsters for 15 minutes, then place in an ice water bath until cool. Heat a large saute pan over moderate heat. Add butter and when it begins to sizzle, place hot dog buns opened flat inside side down in the pan. When golden brown, turn and cook 1 additional minute. Remove lobster meat from shells, dice and mix with celery, mayonnaise, tarragon, salt and pepper. Mound into buns and serve.
