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.
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!
Ingredients for Lobster Rolls
- Hoagie Buns
- Lobster Tail (Any part of the lobster can be substituted)
- Fresh Lemon
- Green Onion
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.
