New England Style Lobster Roll

When most people think of Cape Cod, they think of quaint little villages by the sea with streets lined with Artisan shops filled with every souvenir imaginable.  But when I think of Cape Cod, I think about my family and lobster rolls.

Every summer as a child and into adulthood, my family packs up and drives to Cape Cod to spend the Fourth of July week playing mini golf, swimming and just enjoying the salt air.  At least once during that week,  we head to the Raw Bar at the Popponesset Marketplace.   It is located in Mashpee and they are famous for their lobster rolls. Even today, it is still one of my favorite things to do.

The Rolls

I like to use  New England hot dog buns for my lobster rolls, as this is the traditional one used here in the northeast.   These rolls are slit on top and the lobster salad sits in the center.   You can grill them up with a little butter for a fantastic crisp toasted bun.  Any hot dog bun will do, but I do feel sorry for the folks who can’t get these in their regular supermarket, as I know they are not readily available outside of New England.

This recipe is simple to make and an absolute summer favorite.
