Fresh Maine Lobster Roll
1¼ lb live soft shell Maine lobster (½ cup cooked lobster meat)
2 tbsp cup mayonnaise
½ tsp lemon juice
½ tsp dried chives
Salt and pepper to taste
¼ cup shredded lettuce
1 ciabatta roll
Bring 3 quarts of water to a full boil on the stove top. Add lobster headfirst into pot and boil, uncovered, for 10 minutes. Carefully remove lobster from pot and allow it to cool.
Remove lobster meat from the shell (Need help? Click here. I only remove meat from the claws and tail, stopping at step 8.) Chop meat into small pieces and place in a bowl.
In a separate bowl, mix together mayonnaise, lemon juice, chives, salt and pepper. Add to lobster meat and stir to combine.
Slice ciabatta roll and add lettuce. Top lettuce with lobster meat and serve immediately.
