(Adapted from Food and Wine)
This recipe serves 6.
1 1/2 lbs Fresh lobster meat (1 lb of lobster meat will yield about 4 lobster rolls)
1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
Salt and freshly ground pepper
1/4 cup finely diced celery
2 TBSP fresh lemon juice
Pinch of cayenne pepper
4 top-split hot dog buns
2 TBSP unsalted butter, melted
1/2 cup shredded Boston lettuce
Blot the lobster well to get off any moisture. In a large bowl, mix the lobster meat with the mayonnaise and season with salt and pepper, and add the celery lemon juice and cayenne.
Heat a large skillet. Brush the sides of the hot dog buns with the melted butter and toast over moderate heat until golden brown on both sides.
Transfer the hot dog buns to plates, fill them with the shredded lettuce and then the lobster salad, and serve immediately along with potato chips and pickle spears.
