Dill-Lemon-Caper Lobster Rolls
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.
