Classic New England Lobster Roll
1½ cups cooked lobster, cut into 1½" pieces (from about two 1.25 pound fresh New England Lobsters, cooked in salted water for 7-8 minutes)
2 Tb good quality mayonnaise, homemade or store bought
freshly ground black pepper, to taste
2 New England style split-top hot dog roll or any soft roll
2 Tb unsalted butter, softened
optional: fresh lemon wedges
In a small bowl, combine the cooked lobster, mayonnaise, and black pepper and mix well. Set aside.
Heat a small skillet over medium-high heat. Spread softened butter on each side of hot dog roll and place buttered side down in heated skillet. Cook until both sides of roll are lightly brown. Remove to a plate.
Divide the lobster mixture between the two rolls and serve with lemon wedges.
