My husband grew up on Bailey Island, ME where his parents still reside. We both adore going up to this little lobstermen island with it's rocky coast and ocean views. The island is only 3 miles long and 1 mile wide with only a General Store for immediate supplies. It is quite remote and the the minute you cross the Cribstone bridge and breathe in the salty air all of your stresses from city living seem to disappear.

During our visit my Mother and Father in law fed us lobster rolls and oysters (spoiled!). Due to shedding season, the lobster was amazingly sweet.  This succulent lobster only required a dollop of mayonnaise and some juice of a lemon. I piled the lobster meat high in my lightly buttered and toasted bun for the most hearty and delicious lunch I have had in awhile.

Lobster Roll Ingredients

1 tablespoon butter, softened
4 hot dog buns or kaiser rolls, split
4 lettuce leaves
1 1/2 pounds cooked and cubed lobster
2 tablespoons mayonnaise
1 teaspoon fresh lime juice
2 Green onions, Choppe
1 Stalk celery finely chopped
Salt and Pepper

Lightly butter the insides of the buns or rolls and line with lettuce leaves. Set aside.

In a medium bowl, stir together the mayonnaise, lime juice, salt and pepper until well blended. Mix in the green onion and celery, then lightly mix in the lobster so it just gets coated without falling apart.
Stuff the lobster filling into the buns and enjoy!
