Lobster Rolls

This is a recipe for lobster roll sandwiches served on a toasted hoagie with succulent pieces of lobster, mayonnaise, celery, and a squeeze of fresh lemon topped with green onion.

Lobster Rolls

These lobster rolls are super tasty!

They are not sushi like the name would probably suggest. Rather, it’s lobster salad served in a hot hoagie bun.

Taking something so luxurious like a lobster tail and breaking it down into a hoagie bun may seem wrong, backward, against nature, but you will not be sorry! They are really good and my family loved them.

We had a night of trying different meat salads: chicken salad on pretzel buns, tuna salad on whole-wheat toast, and lobster salad on hoagie buns.

It was so delicious trying each one!

Not to be misled…

The hoagie buns pictured here are mini hoagies from Sam’s Club and I was able to get 4 mini hoagies filled with the amount of lobster salad in this recipe.

However, I know most people aren’t buying hoagie buns in bulk at Sam’s Club like me, so if you have the standard size from the grocery store it will fill two regular-sized hoagie buns perfectly. I tested it!

How much time to boil lobster tail?

About 5-7 minutes. Drop them in once the salted water is boiling.

How to know when lobster tails are done:

Keep a watchful eye out for the shell/tail to turn bright red. The meat will also become white all the way through and no longer translucent.
