These lobster rolls are super tasty!
They are not sushi like the name would probably suggest. Rather, it’s a 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!
Ingredients for Lobster Rolls
- Hoagie Buns
- Lobster Tail (Any part of the lobster can be substituted depending on availability)
- Fresh Lemon
The hoagie buns pictured here are mini hoagies and I was able to get 4 mini hoagies filled with the amount of lobster salad in this recipe. It will also fill 2 regular-sized hoagies.
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.

- Boil lobster tail in salted water for 5-7 minutes until lobster tail is bright red and lobster meat is opaque. Allow lobster to cool in colander or strainer.
