National Lobster Day is observed each year on June 15th. Celebrate by enjoying a delicious lobster meal at your favorite seafood restaurant or by making the delicious recipe below.

Lobster Rolls

Ingredients

2 cups cooked, diced lobster meat
1/4 cup homemade lemon chive mayonnaise (or other good quality mayonnaise)
3 tablespoons finely chopped celery
Kosher salt and black pepper
4 top split hot dog buns
3 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
3 leaves Boston lettuce, sliced

Instructions

1. To steam your lobster: bring 2 inches of salted water to a rolling boil. Put live lobsters in water, cover the pot, and steam for 8-10 minutes per 1 1/4 pound lobster. They’re done when the antennae pull out fairly easily, or the internal temperature of the lobster meat reaches 135 ° F.

2. Mix the lobster, mayonnaise, and celery together in a bowl. Season the mixture with salt and pepper to taste.

3. Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Brush the inner and outer surfaces of the buns with butter. Open the buns up and toast them in the skillet until golden brown on both sides.
4. Arrange some lettuce on each bun and top with equal portions of the lobster mixture. Serve immediately, preferably with a cold beer on the side!
