Easy “Connecticut Style” Lobster Rolls

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!


  • 2 steamed lobsters (at least 1lb each)
  • 2 tablespoons butter, divided
  • 4 New England-style hot dog buns
  • The juice of 1 lemon
  • Parsley (optional garnish)


  1. Remove meat from each lobster shell and place in medium sized bowl.
  2. In a small sauté pan, melt 1 tablespoon butter.
  3. Toast each side of the buns until golden brown. Set aside to cool.
  4. Add remaining butter to pan along with lobster meat. Pour lemon juice over meat and stir to coat for a 2-3 minutes.
  5. Remove pan from heat and let sit for a minute or two.
  6. Stuff each bun with prepared lobster and top with parsley. Enjoy!
