Finally, to the main event! THE FOOD….

Mini Lobster Rolls

Makes 24 | Prep Time: 20 minutes | Cook Time: 20 minutes


4 cups water, for boiling (Use 1 ½ cups of water per lb of lobster)

2 lbs live small lobsters or ½ lb cooked lobster meat

½ cup of mayo

1 teaspoon of honey

1 tablespoon of lemon juice

2 tablespoons of melted unsalted butter

Pinch of salt

3 dashes of ground black pepper

1 tablespoon of chopped fresh dill

1 tablespoon of chopped fresh chives

24 small dinner rolls


Bring the water to boil. Add the lobsters, cover, and cook until they turn bright read, about 8 minutes.

Remove the lobster, set aside and let cool. Crack the lobster shells, pick the meat from the tail and claws. Cut the lobster meat into bite-sized pieces.

Add the mayonnaise, honey, lemon juice, salt, black pepper, dill and chives together, set aside.

Cut down into the tops of the rolls to split them, but do not cut all the way through so folding can be simple . Spread the butter on the sides. Heat up a skillet on medium heat and cook the sides until they are nicely toasted and become golden brown. Fill the inside of the buns with the lobsters. Serve immediately. ENJOY!!
