Lobster Rolls

We’ve been eating more live lobster than normal with the cheap sales at H Mart and since DH has learned to steam lobster. (I personally can’t look when he does it but he manages to have a whole conversation with them before dropping them in the pot).

After eating my fill of simply steamed lobsters, I decided to make some lobster rolls. I hope to be eating some genuine lobster rolls when I make a trip later this year to Boston, but until then, here is my version.

I know there’s a butter version and a mayonnaise version. Mine has the slightest bit of mayonnaise, some celery for crunch and color. And of course a lot of lobster chunks, mainly tail and claw meat. These are easy to make with leftover lobster so I can’t quite understand why places charge so much for it.
