Lobstah roll with Lemon Vinaigrette & Garlic Butter

Living in Maine I obviously have the best lobster at my disposal. I’m constantly making, baking, ordering, and eating them. LOVE. One of the to-do things in Maine is to get a Lobstah roll. Usually they come with mayo, but since my husband isn’t a fan, we make them with butter instead. Here’s the original link I found (http://sugarandspice-celeste.blogspot.com/2009/07/lobster-rolls-wlemon-vinaigrette-garlic.html?m=1) Have a taste of New England!


4 (1 1/4- to 1 1/2-lb) live lobsters
3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil
1/3 cup thinly sliced scallions
1/4 cup chopped flat-leaf parsley
1/2 stick unsalted butter
3 garlic cloves, smashed
6 hot dog buns, preferably top-split (I used Portuguese rolls)


Get your lobster…most markets will steam them for you for free. If you can, let them! It’s so much easier to deal with. If not, check out my post of lobster bake and follow it until the lobster is done and RED! NOTE: I got 3 lobster since there was only 3 of us…and there was leftover! Next time I’ll get 2.


Break the claws and detach the tails…get the meat!

In a separate bowl, whisk together lemon juice, oil, and 1/2 tsp salt in a large bowl. Whisk in scallions and parsley, then add lobster and gently toss. Season with salt.


Set it aside while you make the butter mixture.


Melt butter with garlic in a small saucepan over low heat, mashing garlic with a spoon.

Brush the inside of the buns with garlic butter. Grill…or stick it in the oven buttered side down, until golden, about 1 minute.

Fill buns with lobster.
