Lobster Rolls with Fresh Lobsters Tails



4 4.5 oz fresh lobster tails (or previously frozen tails)

2-3 celery stalks, finely chopped

1/4 cup light mayo or avocado oil mayo

Lemon juice from 1 lemon

2 tbsp Chives, minced

Lemon zest of 1/2 lemon

(Optional: 2 tbsp minced red onions or shallots)

2 tbsp melted butter

Salt and pepper

2 cups shredded lettuce

4-5 good sub buns


  1. Fill a large steam pot with water a third of the way and place steam basket on top. Once the water starts boiling, add the fresh, raw lobster tails to the basket. Cover and steam cook for 8- 10 minutes (the lobsters will change color from brown to a bright red/orange). Then remove lobsters from steam pot and set aside to cool.
  2. Meanwhile, mix the Mayo, celery, lemon juice, chives, lemon zest and salt and pepper to taste (and optional onions or shallots).
  3. This is a good time to toast your buns in the oven.
  4. Split the top of the lobster tail with a knife and use a fork to get all the lobster meat out of the shell. Chop lobster meat into large chunks and add to the celery/mayo mixture.
  5. Use a pastry brush to spread the melted butter on the inside of the toasted sub buns.
  6. Arrange sandwich with lettuce and a few scoops of the lobster meat!
  7. Serve with hot French fries and enjoy!
