One of my favorite things about being a New Englandaaah is access to inexpensive fresh caught lobster.  We have a friend who recently got his lobster fishing license… which means we get fresh live lobsters caught that morning off Cape Cod!  It’s a real treat, and a total delicacy of living in New England, so we prepare these warm lobster rolls with love.

You can use either live lobsters (and steam them according to this) – or pre-cooked/frozen lobster meat. We made Warm New England Lobsters rolls with the leftover cooked lobsters from our rehearsal dinner, and they were just as good as fresh.  It’s a fairly quick recipe from start to finish.  While the lobsters are cooking and being cleaned, you can prepare the sauce for the meat and toast the rolls.  It can all come together quickly once the meat has been removed.

These Warm New England Lobster Rolls Are:

  • Bright
  • Fresh
  • Savory
  • Decadent
  • Loaded with Flavor
  • A Great Special-Occasion Dinner
  • Can be Made Gluten Free with GF rolls or buns!

What To Serve with Lobster Rolls

I like to serve these with slaw – I have to great recipes on my site. The first is a creamy classic coleslaw recipe (a long-time family recipe!) you can make with sour cream and a few pantry staple ingredients. The other, if you are looking for a lighter recipe that doesn’t contain mayo or sour cream, is a tangy cabbage coleslaw with vinegar and sugar. Both are great, and either of them would be a fine accompaniment to these lobster rolls.

Also, I have to mention: lobster rolls are fantastic with champagne. If you don’t have a bottle lying around in the fridge already, definitely get one and chill it beforehand.  The light acidity of the champagne pairs really well with the butter and garlic. Its a perfect balance of light and sweet, and not too heavy on the palate.

I’d also recommend some light fare like corn on the cob, baked potatoes, or a light salad. Make the lobster the star!

How Do You Make Warm New England Lobster Rolls?

  1. Steam the lobsters in a pot for 8-10 minutes.  There are a lot of different ways to do this, I like this resource.
  2. Remove meat from claws, legs, and knuckles.  Remove any bits of attached shell. Roughly chop the lobster meat into bite-sized pieces.
  3. In a pan, heat the garlic and butter together until garlic has softened.  Add the lobster meat and gently warm.
  4. In a medium bowl, whisk together the mayonnaise, celery, and chives.  Add the lobster, draining the excess butter and leaving it in the pan.
  5. Toast the buns in the broiler for 1 minute until they are lightly browned. To assemble the lobster rolls: Open one toasted bun, place a leaf of green lettuce in the middle, and add a few scoops of the lobster mixture on top of the lettuce.
