Lobster Rolls

Lobster rolls scream summer to me and when you want an extra special lunch, this is it! Chunks of fresh chilled lobster tossed with celery, shallots, chives, light mayonnaise and a little lemon zest served on a hot dog bun.

Today I had my cousin Nina over for lunch which gave me the excuse to make these lobster rolls; something I’ve been craving for weeks! I live just a few miles from the ocean so I am fortunate to have lots of fresh seafood stores nearby. I picked up some pre-steamed lobster tails for convenience but if you can’t find cooked lobster you can buy the tails and steam them yourself. Mayonnaise haters can replace the mayo with Greek yogurt. Enjoy!
