Lobster Rolls

Leftovers from 15 pounds of lobster claws and tails for dinner turn into the next day's lunch. After eating as much lobster was humanly possible, there still was enough left for me to make about Lobster Rolls for a few lucky family members.

With the ocean temperature hovering around 60 degrees, the morning was spent watching the brave souls dance in and out of the waves as jellyfish floated by. I gladly retreated to the kitchen to do little chopping and dicing for my Lobster Rolls. With chilled, cooked lobster in the frig, the rolls for lunch went together in a snap.

Having been spoiled with such good food and family fun on our vacation, I'll be reading my own blog to reminisce about the great time we had. I'll probably be repeating a few of the recipes too.

Lobster Rolls

makes 8 lobster rolls

about 2 1/2 pounds of cooked and chilled lobster
1 cup of celery, small dice
2 heaping tablespoons of mayonnaise
1/2 teaspoon of dried dill
juice of 1/2 lemon
8 hotdog buns
lemon wedges

Chop lobster into about 1-inch chunks. In a large bowl, combine lobster, celery, mayonnaise, dill, and lemon juice. Toss lightly to combine. Spoon a generous portion into hotdog buns. Serve with lemon wedges.

Those lobster rolls look delish, but what I can't get over is that you had 15 lbs. of lobster for dinner the night before?

I think a little part of me just exploded at the thought of something that amazing...

kevin - thanks! they were.

lisa - i'm surprised we had extra, but we bought a ton so we could have lobster rolls.

esi - you won't be disappointed. give them a try.

robin sue - thanks. make them in virginia and pretend you are in New England.

patsyk - next time lobster is on sale at shoprite - pick some up for lobster rolls.

paula - i had 1 and 1/2 - felt a little full afterwards.

sweet bird - we bought just the claws and tails for 5.99 a pound. it yielded much more meat than shell - bonus!!

ohiomom - my kind of meal too - super easy!

Wow! How decadent!

Becky said...

i've got a huge weakness for a good lobster roll. yours look wonderful. nice job!

Veronica said...

Oh my those look decadent! I looove lobster rolls-but especially "Connecticut style": hot lobster on a butter toasted bun drizzled with melted butter. Many will argue who has the best Lobster rolls in New England but imho it's Abbotts in Noank, CT.
