What's better than sweet, succulent lobster meat lightly tossed with mayo and a squeeze of fresh lemon juice, all piled in a buttery split-top toasted bun? Indulging in this over-the-top New England favorite is a must. This recipe is courtesy of The Food Channel, and they've customized this lobster roll with crunchy celery and scallions, finishing with a drizzle of warm butter.

For a simpler take on this recipe, the lobster filling can be made ahead of time and stored in the refrigerator. Don't skip the butter-toasted bun step when assembling your lobster roll – it is key to this recipe!

  • 10 ounces cooked lobster meat
  • 2 to 4 tablespoons high quality mayonnaise
  • 1 teaspoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped scallions
  • Pinch of salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 split-top hot dog buns
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • As needed warm clarified butter



  1. Remove the meat from lobsters; roughly chop into large bite-size pieces.
  2. In a bowl, combine lobster meat, mayonnaise, celery, lemon juice, scallions, salt and black pepper; stir to blend.
  3. Using a serrated knife, slice outer edges off each bun. Spread butter on cut sides of each roll. Toast, butter side down, in a skillet over medium heat for 1 minute on each side, or until golden.
  4. Spoon lobster mixture evenly into toasted buns.
  5. Drizzle lightly with melted butter and dive in!
