Cooked lobster tossed in a creamy dressing punctuated with dill, capers, and lemon offers a new take on the traditional lobster roll.

  • 3 Tbs. mayonnaise
  • 2 tsp. minced fresh dill
  • 2 tsp. drained capers
  • 1-1/2 tsp. fresh lemon juice
  • 1/4 tsp. finely grated lemon zest, plus the juice from 1 small lemon
  • 8 oz. cooked lobster meat, cut into bite-size pieces
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • Unsalted butter, softened
  • 2 split-top hot dog rolls
  • Butter lettuce leaves

In a medium bowl, mix the mayonnaise, dill, capers, lemon zest and lemon juice.

Gently mix the lobster meat into the dressing. Season to taste with salt  and pepper.

Heat a 10-inch skillet over medium-high heat. Spread the butter over the outside of the hot dog rolls and toast in the skillet until lightly browned, about 2 minutes per side. Line each roll with lettuce leaves, fill with the lobster salad, and serve.

We've made this several times now. My husband is gluten free, so we forego the rolls. So yummy and easy!

Excellent although I had to make some substitutions such as shrimp for lobster, dill paste for fresh dill and green lettuce for butter lettuce. Simple to make and delicious.
