CONNECTICUT-STYLE LOBSTER ROLLS
SERVES 4. HANDS-ON TIME: 15 MINUTES. TOTAL TIME: 15 MINUTES.
Rich, fragrant butter is what sets a Connecticut-style lobster roll apart from its counterpart, the Maine variety, which uses mayo. While a Connecticut-style roll is typically served warm, here we keep it at room temperature to avoid the stove – but heat it up if you prefer.
1 lb cooked lobster meat, roughly chopped, room temperature or warmed
½ tsp finely grated lemon zest + 3 tbsp fresh lemon juice
1 tsp paprika
¼ tsp each sea salt and ground black pepper
3 tbsp organic unsalted butter
4 large Bibb lettuce leaves
4 whole-grain hot dog buns
1 tbsp chopped fresh chives
1. In a bowl, combine lobster, lemon zest and juice, paprika, salt and pepper. Melt butter (in microwave); add to bowl and toss.
2. Divide lettuce and lobster mixture among buns; sprinkle with chives.
