These lobster rolls include no mayo, just buttery lobster flesh delicately mixed with lemon juice and served on a toasted bread. A New England institution! Try my Lobster Scampi with Cheese Tortellini next time.
How come I haven’t done a recipe post on this before? Lobster rolls are my all-time favorite meal.
Lobster rolls are available across New England, but I like the Connecticut variety (which is ironic, since Im in no way partial to Connecticut itself).
There’s no mayo in this beauty, just a hot butter and lemon dressing. It becomes a traditional New England lunch when served with Cape Cod chips and a Shipyard Summer.
If you’re still hungry, grill up some corn while you’re at it!
You don’t like beer? Then, complement your meal with a glass of white wine.
Take a look at it.
Claw flesh to the brim.

What were we talking about, again? That’s correct. Rolls of lobster.
Can we just talk about this absolutely lovely bowl I received from Home Goods while we’re on the subject? THIS IS A LOBSTER. It’s also the ideal size for my lobster roll.
There was no way I was going to miss out on that.
It’s a lobster holding my lobster.
It all started with a lobster.
