Lobster rolls

Prep time: 10 min

Cooking time: 10 min

Serves: 2

Ingredients:

  • 680g fresh Boston lobster (approx)
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 inner celery stalks, peeled and chopped finely
  • 1 tsp paprika or cayenne pepper
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp salt and ground black pepper, mixed
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 2 hot-dog buns
  • 20g chives, chopped


Method:

  1. In boiling water, add the lobster to a large pot and cover for about 10 min. Put the cooked lobster in ice water to stop the cooking process. Remove the lobster meat from the shell and chop into bite-size pieces.
  2. In a bowl, combine the lobster meat, mayonnaise, lemon juice, celery, paprika or cayenne, olive oil and salt and pepper. Keep inside the fridge for 10 min for the meat to absorb the flavours.
  3. Cut the top of a hot-dog bun open in a V shape, spread with half the butter and toast in the oven for 2 min at 180°C. Repeat with the second bun.
  4. Place the marinated lobster on top of the buns and sprinkle the chopped chives on top.
