Ingredients For The Worlds Greatest Lobster Roll

Ingredients For The Worlds Greatest Lobster Roll, originally uploaded by captjoe06.

Has to be Cains mayo, and hot dog rolls so you can grill them to a golden brown with the salted butter.

Notice there is no lettuce, paprika, celery or any other filler. If anything else appears in your lobster roll, you have an inferior lobster roll.

steam the lobsters and shuck the meat

tear the meat into 1/2 inch chunks or so and mix with cains mayo


once lobster and mayo is chilled, butter each side of cheap hot dog rolls (the kind you tear apart)

you do not want to use any goddamn baguette or crusty overpowering roll

you want white bread tear apart soft hot dog rolls

once you butter the sides of the hot dog rolls with SALTED butter you pan brown the roll so its warm and golden brown

just barely browned but the roll should still be very soft

then load up your cool lobster/mayo filling into the warm soft buttery roll and you have yourself the perfect lobster roll

    The simplest things are often the best. The plain ol’ toasted hotdog bun truly makes a great lobster roll. But Joey, where on earth do you find good lobster ; ) ? As it’s often the case when browsing your blog, now I am hungry…Thanks!

    Ditto on getting hungry when reading your blog. I had to run out to Chili Choice on Saturday after you posted pictures. I got an instant craving for Mexican. It was very good, btw!

    where on earth do you get those kind of rolls? here in florida, and being a floridian, a hot dog roll looks like this:
    and not like real bread connected at the bottom with all that open bread to hold on to the wonderfulness of butter. I want bread like yours!

  4. Joey says:

    I feel sorry for you Foto, not being able to acquire our cheapie hot dog rolls which work well for holding all that buttery goodness.

    I agree with Joey on this one. Simple is better.

    I hate when they fill it all up with shredded lettuce and whatnot. I paid for the Lobster not all that other.
