Summer on a Bun: The Lobster Roll

Summer on a Bun: The Lobster Roll

Native to New England, the lobster roll is famous for its delectable qualities and fresh seafood flavors that transport you straight to the ocean with just one bite.

Lobster rolls contain chunks of fresh lobster meat on a buttered, griddled split-top bun. The iconic rolls’ origins and which version best represents the authentic lobster roll are hotly debated. Is hot filling best or the cold lobster salad? Some favor lettuce while others prefer celery. Two of the most popular versions are Connecticut-style, featuring warm chunks of lobster meat soaked in butter and Maine-style containing cooled steamed lobster meat lightly dressed with mayonnaise.

Dive Into Quality Seafood

No matter your preference, the secret to an exceptional lobster roll is quality lobster. Using the freshest catches creates an unforgettably delicious sandwich.
