Lobster Roll Recipe Ingredients

For the lobster dressing:

  • 1 cup Dukes Mayonnaise
  • 1 fl. oz Tarragon White Wine Vinegar
  • 1 Garlic clove, grated on a microplane
  • 1 Lemon, zest and juice of
  • t.t. Kosher Salt (to taste)
  • Lemon juice (as needed to adjust dressing to the desired consistency)
  • 36 Tarragon leaves, cut in thirds; crosswise


For the garnish: 

  • 2 Celery ribs, diced small
  • 20 Celery heart leaves
  • 12 Tarragon leaves


Lobster Roll Recipe Directions

For the dressing:

Add the dressing ingredients in a medium-sized mixing bowl, reserving any excess lemon juice to adjust later on. Taste and add salt or lemon juice to achieve the desired flavor.

For the toasted bun:

Add a generous sprinkling of salt to the split-top buns and toast in clarified butter. Add another sprinkle of salt as the butter heats to ensure maximum flavor. 

For the grand finale:

  1. Place 4 each (4oz) portions of cooked lobster in a large mixing bowl.
  2. Season with four pinches of kosher salt and add 1/2 cup of lobster dressing.
  3. Toss in diced celery. Mix to coat. Taste.
  4. Discover your desired consistency by gently adding more dressing for a thicker coating or a teaspoon of lemon juice (at a time) to thin the dressing’s consistency.
  5. Add a small pinch of salt after each adjustment.
  6. Add an equal portion of dressed lobster salad to each of the toasted, split-top buns.
  7. Garnish each sandwich with 5 each celery heart leaves and 3 Tarragon leaves, and enjoy!
