  • Total Time: 1 hour 35 min
  • Yield: 4 servings 1x
  • Category: Main


  • 4 (1-pound) lobsters
  • 4 New England style hot dog buns
  • Butter, for buns
  • Mayonnaise, for garnish


  1. Fill a large bowl with ice and water.
  2. In a large pot, bring salted water to a boil. Deposit lobsters to cook them until they are bright red, about 10 minutes. Using tongs, transfer the cooked lobsters to the ice water bath for 2 minutes. Drain the lobsters. Twist off the lobster tails and claws. Remove the meat. Discard the intestinal vein that runs the length of the lobster tail.
  3. Cut the lobster meat into 1/2-inch pieces. Using paper towels, pat the lobster meat dry.
  4. Heat a large cast iron skillet over medium heat. Brush both sides of each hot dog bun with melted butter and toast until golden brown on each side.
  5. Spread a layer of mayonnaise on both insides of a toasted hot dog roll. Fill with lobster meat.
