How to Make the Ultimate Lobster Roll

There’s nothing quite like a lobster roll during the warm summer months, especially when you can make it right at home! This famous New England dish combines fresh, succulent lobster with a light dressing, all tucked into a buttery, toasted bun. Here’s how to create the ultimate lobster roll that rivals even the best seafood shacks.


  • 1 pound of cooked lobster meat, chopped into bite-sized pieces
  • 4 split-top hot dog buns
  • 4 tablespoons of melted butter
  • 2 tablespoons of mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon of lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons of chopped fresh chives
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Optional: 1 tablespoon of finely chopped celery for crunch


  1. Make sure your lobster meat is fresh and fully cooked. Boil or steam for 12-15 minutes, then chill in ice water before chopping into bite-sized pieces. 
  2. Mix mayonnaise, lemon juice, chives, and optional celery in a bowl until smooth, seasoning with salt and pepper. Gently fold the lobster into this dressing to enhance its flavor without overpowering it. 
  3. Brush split-top buns with melted butter and toast until golden. 
  4. Fill each bun with the lobster mixture, serving the rolls immediately for a perfect blend of warm buns and cool, creamy lobster. 
  5. Enjoy fresh with chips, a salad, and perhaps a glass of white wine.
