I’m so excited about this Lobster Roll recipe. I created it about four years ago, and think it’s time to share. Yes, it may not be typical, or so traditional. Who cares? It’s all me! I love using only the freshest Maine lobster meat. You can use frozen if that is all you have available. However, if you can get your hands on fresh, you need to! If you can’t find already steamed lobster meat, grab a few whole lobsters and steam away. I love using all of it, the knuckle, claw, and tail. This recipe is mayo-based. I guarantee it will be The Best Lobster Roll you have ever eaten!

Local to Charlotte, grab a bag of fresh lobster meat at The Carolina Meat & Fish Co. Not local, they can ship to you! Let’s get to making The Best Lobster Roll!

The recipe is super simple. It’s basically just combining all of the ingredients. You can serve in a traditional lobster roll, or I actually like the split top buns. Toasted or not…I prefer not. This recipe should yield six generous lobster rolls. One cool idea I did on Christmas Eve was to serve in mini Hawaiian buns. This would be great idea for a brunch or shower. Don’t want a bun? Serve as a salad, alone.

Make sure that your celery is minced. Absolutely no big pieces. For the lemon zest, instead of using a zester, I use a potato peeler (be sure to only peel the yellow). Hand cut the lemon rind into tiny pieces. I just enjoy that bigger burst of lemon that you may not get from running the rind over a zester.

In a large bowl, combine the mayo, minced celery, one-half teaspoon kosher salt, celery seed, lemon zest and the juice of two of the lemons. Mix well to combine. Start with the one-half cup of mayo and see if you need to add a bit more. Take the remaining 1/2 tsp of salt and the juice of the remaining lemon and cover over lobster meat.

Fold in the lobster meat. Taste to ensure you have enough lemon and salt.

Serve in your favorite bun or alone as a salad. The Best Lobster Roll ever! ENJOY!!!

I am more than just recipes. I love fashion and style too! Most importantly, I love my Family (my Hubby and my Fur Babies). My Husband (aka my “Kitchen Bitch”) means the world to me. He’s pretty damn cool too. Not only is he one of the nicest guys you will ever meet, he also has had a lengthy career in professional hockey. Not only winning two Stanley Cups with the Pittsburgh Penguins in the early ’90’s, but most recently winning the Calder Cup with the Charlotte Checkers, amongst many other accolades. If you live in Charlotte and play hockey, or have a family member who plays, be sure to contact him. He is known as one of the best skate sharpeners in the world!

Our life has changed dramatically in the past few years with the passing of our two goldendoodles, Vegas and Viva. We were lucky enough to have Vegas for five years (totally wish it was longer). Most recently, losing our Viva to a brain tumor in July of 2020. We welcomed our mini goldendoodle 7, almost seven years ago. We just added the amazing Hazel! Of course, I am always posting tons and tons of photos! Be sure to check out my recipe for Pet Bone Broth!
