Yields4 Servings

 2 lbs (at least) of cooked lobster meat. The Butcher's Wife loves tails, but the combination of tails and claws is traditional
 4 tbsp softened butter
 4 Brioche rolls or hot dog bun of your choice - some would recommend a sweeter roll, but our testers preferred a less sweet bun
 ¾ tsp dried dill
 1 tsp grated lemon zest + more for garnish
 ½ cup Hellman's mayonnaise
 2 tsp fresh lemon juice - yes, you can use the squirt bottle in a pinch, but it won't be as good
 2 tbsp chopped fresh parsley, but only if you have it
 3 dashes hot sauce
 A few romaine lettuce leaves, washed and patted dry. Optional. The Butcher's Wife Pro-Tip: They keep a barrier to keep the bun from getting soggy.

1

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. If you have a convection oven, this is the perfect time to use it. Spread softened butter on the outside ONLY of the buns and set aside.

2

Melt two tablespoons of butter in a small sauté pan over medium low heat. Cut cooked lobster into bite size pieces. Keep it big for beauty – big chunks of lobsters are the best.

3

In a medium bowl, mix mayonnaise, lemon zest, lemon juice, and dried dill for dressing. Whisk to combine. Set aside.

4

After the butter is melted, place lobster pieces in the butter in the skillet and heat gently through while coating in the melted butter. GENTLE! Use fairly low heat. All you want to do is take the chill off of the lobster and coat it in the melted butter.

5

Put the buns in the oven for about 7 minutes or until the outside is lightly golden and toasted.

6

Add the lobster pieces to the bowl with the dressing. Toss gently to combine. Safely taste your dressing then season to taste with salt and pepper.

7

Remove toasted buns from the oven and place lettuce pieces in the cut. Fill each with one quarter of the lobster mixture. Pile it up high and garnish with chopped parsley and more lemon zest if desired.

May we suggest a bottle of dry, bubbly to be paired with your lobster roll? Lobster rolls on a hot dog bun with some bubbly on the side? Why not? Fancy-not-fancy!
