Ingredients

Lobster:

2 gallons salted water

4 live lobsters

Dressing:

2 cups prepared mayonnaise

1cup finely diced celery

1cup finely diced onion

1 teaspoon paprika

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice

1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Clarified butter, for brushing rolls

4 top-split hot dog buns

Lemon wedges, for serving

Directions

  1. In a large pot, bring the water to a boil. Add the lobsters. Bring the water back to a rolling boil and start a timer for 8 minutes. When the timer sounds remove the cooked lobsters and put them into an ice bath to stop the cooking process. When cooled, remove all the lobster meat and cut into 1/2-inch dice. Refrigerate cooked lobster until you are ready to assemble the sandwiches.
  2. For the dressing:
  3. Mix the mayonnaise, celery, onion, paprika, salt, lemon juice and pepper in a mixing bowl. Add the lobster pieces, stirring to combine. Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.
  4. Final assembly:
  5. Using clarified butter, brush both sides the hot dog buns and toast in a hot saute pan or on a griddle until golden brown. While still warm, divide the lobster roll filling evenly among buns. Serve with fresh lemon wedges and favorite side dish.
