About this recipe:This is a version of the American classic sandwich called the 'Maine lobster roll', popular throughout the New England region of the United States. Cooked and cooled lobster, the sweet meat of the sea, stirred into a spicy lime mayonnaise mixture with spring onion and celery, topped with fresh herbs and served on a roll, traditionally with potato crisps or chips on the side. Delicious lunch use for that leftover lobster tail from the posh dinner out, or just fresh cooked lobster!

Method Prep:15min › Ready in:15min
Lightly butter the insides of the kaiser rolls or baps and line with lettuce leaves; set aside.
In a medium bowl stir together the mayonnaise, lime juice, hot pepper sauce, salt and pepper until well blended. Mix in the spring onion and celery, then lightly mix in the lobster so it just gets coated without falling apart.
Stuff the lobster filling into the bread rolls and sprinkle parsley, basil or tarragon lightly over the filling.
