Classic Maine Lobster Roll

July 29, 2011

One of the most iconic foods of the Northeast is the lobster roll.  It is a simple sub sandwich that is made by filling split top roll, usually a hot dog roll, with a mixture of fresh succulent lobster, mayonnaise, and finely chopped celery.  The simplicity of the roll is what makes it so great.  Maine lobster rolls are a great way to the luxury of lobster without the high price tag.  Enjoy a lobster roll this summer.

Oh my god, that looks so good. My grandmother was a cook for a 4-star resort in Boothbay Harbor, ME and used to make these. It's been years since I've had one of these lobster delights! Thanks for the recipe. I'm on my way to the store... :)
