Recipe type: Sandwich
Cuisine: Seafood
Serves: 4
  • ¼ cup Kosher salt
  • Three (3) 1 & ½ half pound live lobsters
  • ¼ cup of good-quality mayonnaise
  • ¼ cup celery, finely diced
  • 1 tablespoon capers, drained
  • Juice of one 1 lemon, plus several wedges for garnish
  • 4 dashes of hot sauce (Tabasco is nice)
  • 4 top-split hot dog buns (New England Style)
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 tablespoon chives, finely chopped (optional)
  1. In a large stock pot, fill about ¾ quarters of the pot with salted water and bring to a rolling boil.
  2. Cook the lobsters, covered, for 8 - 10 minutes, until bright pink. Remove from pan with tongs and rinse under cool water for about 30 seconds, each. Place on a cutting board.
  3. Remove the meat from the lobster and roughly chop. Transfer to a bowl and chill 15 minutes.
  4. In the meantime, combine the mayo, celery, capers, lemon juice and hot sauce.
  5. Pull the lobster meat from the fridge and add the mayo mixture and gently stir.
  6. Heat a large skillet over medium high heat.
  7. Generously butter each side of the top-split buns and then toast on each side in the hot skillet until nicely browned...about 2 minutes per side
  8. Fill the toasted buns with the lobster salad.
  9. Top with chives (optional).
  10. Enjoy!
