Maine-Style Lobster Roll

Maine-Style Lobster Roll

May 24, 2024

Prep time: 10-15 minutes or 2-3 minutes (depending on method)

OK, first things first, let’s align on what you’ve got for dinner here. Contrary to popular belief (and despite grade school English logic), this is a “lob-stah roll.” That’s right, the “r” in lobster should not be pronounced. One more time: “LOB-stahhhh roll.” Perfect. Now you’re a true New Englander and the part-ay can commence. 

This crustacean celebration is our take on a “Maine-style” roll, aka when the lobster is served cold and dressed in mayo. But obvi we couldn’t just send you a plain mayo-type situation for tonight’s dinner. Nah, kehd. Instead, we’ve set you up with this luscious, herby tarragon aioli studded with diced celery for that just-right bit of crunch. Swooooon.

In your bag

  • Lobster knuckle & claw meat
  • New England-style brioche bun
  • Celery & tarragon aioli
  • Honey mustard dressing
  • Roasted & smashed creamer potatoes with Old Bay
  • Cabbage slaw

At home

  • Lightly greased aluminum foil-lined sheet tray or microwave-safe bowl
  • Saute pan & butter (optional)
  • Two mixing bowls

The Potatoes

Oven option:

  1. Preheat your oven to 375F.  
  2. Toss your taters to a lightly greased foil-lined sheet tray and heat for 10-15 minutes, or until warmed to your liking. 

Microwave option:

  1. Add taters to a microwave-safe dish, cover with a damp paper towel, and microwave until warmed to your liking.

The New England-Style Bun

  1. Heat up your bun in the oven, toaster oven, or air fryer!
  2. Optional: For an extra-special treat, melt a pat of butter in a nonstick pan over medium heat. Once melted, add your bun on its side and toast until golden brown. Flip & repeat on the other side!
  3. Slice a small V on top of the bun to make room for your lobster!

The Lobster and Celery & Tarragon Aioli

  1. Add the lobster and aioli to your mixing bowl, and use a spoon or spatula to gently combine. 
  2. Taste & season with S&P (maybe lemon juice too?)

The Cabbage Slaw

  1. Mix the slaw and the honey mustard dressing in a bowl. No need to overdo the dressing, start light. 
  2. Season with S&P and mix.

Take your toasted bun and pile in your lobster. Spoon some smashed potatoes and slaw on the side, and dig in!

That’s it! #Dinnersolved, dinner served.
