There’s no mayo in these lobster rolls – just buttery lobster meat lightly tossed with lemon juice and served on a toasted bun. A New England staple!Next time try my Lobster Scampi with Cheese Tortellini.
How is it possible that I haven’t done a recipe post on this before? It’s only my all time favorite food: lobster rolls.
Lobster rolls are available most anywhere in New England, but I’m partial to the “Connecticut style” (which is ironic, since I’m in no way partial to Connecticut itself).
No mayo in this beauty – only a hot butter and lemon dressing. Served with Cape Cod chips and a Shipyard Summer, it instantly becomes a quintessential New England meal.
And grill up some corn while you’re at it if you’re still hungry!
Not a fan of beer? Then pair your meal with a white wine.
Just look at that thing.
Overflowing with claw meat.
Glowing in the sunlight.

Sorry… what were we talking about? Oh, right. Lobster rolls.
While we’re on the subject, can we please talk about this freaking adorable bowl I got from Home Goods? IT’S A LOBSTER. And it’s the perfect size to hold my lobster roll.
There was absolutely no way I was not going to get it.
It’s a lobster to hold my lobster.
It’s lobster inception.
I’m going to shut up and get to the point of why you’re here and just give you the recipe already. Or maybe you’re here for lobster food porn. I don’t judge.
After you’ve made this recipe, please leave a comment below with a rating – and if you came from Pinterest, add a photo to the Pin of what you make to the pin to share your experience!
Hey Leslie, . I have a small café in Georgeville, Quebec, Canada. I have just started making lobster rolls with mayonnaise, sigh. But I just found that they don't taste Lobstery enough; which is what I want. So I am thinking; what makes seafood sing? Butter and lemon. awesome; thank you for your in put.
Kindest regards, Janet

Janet, I'm so glad that I could help! That's exactly why I prefer the lemon and butter dressing on my lobster - it lets the flavor really shine <3
