Servings: 3 rolls


  • 4 lobster tails
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • ½ tablespoons mayonnaise
  • ½ tablespoon chopped chives
  • ½ stalk celery finely diced
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tablespoon butter softened
  • 3 top-sliced buns
  • chives for garnish


  • In a large pot, add 5 cups of water and 1 teaspoon of salt. Cover and bring to a boil. Once boiling, add lobster tails and cook for 5 minutes or until tails turn bright red. Remove from pot and drain on paper towels. Turn off pot and cover. Remove lobster meat from the shells by slicing down the back of the tail with kitchen shears. Pull the halves apart and gently release the meat from the shells.
  • Add cooked lobster meat to a medium bowl. Add lemon juice, mayo, diced celery, and chives. Mix together and give a taste. Add salt and pepper, as necessary. If you like to serve cold, chill for an hour in the refrigerator.
  • When ready to serve, spread softened butter on both side of the buns. Place on hot skillet over medium heat to toast each side. Remove from heat and load buns up with prepared lobster meat. Serve with chopped chives as a garnish.
