Lobster Roll with Browned Butter + Chives Recipe from Canada’s Food Island
To celebrate the book launch of Canada’s Food Island, we are sharing a recipe as a sneak peek into the cookbook!
Lobster Roll with Browned Butter + Chives
Total time 45 minutes | 4 servings
- Half cup unsalted butter
- 4 lbs cooked lobster, shelled, chopped (keep claws intact)
- Freshly ground black pepper
- 4 split-top hot dog buns
- Half cup shredded iceberg lettuce
- 2 tbsp finely chopped chives
In a small pot melt butter over medium high heat, and then let it cook and bubble until it starts to foam and smell like toasted nuts and caramel, about 5 minutes.
Remove from heat.
Brush each side of the buns with browned butter. Toast on a grill or frying pan until each side is golden brown, 1-2 minutes per side.
In a large bowl toss together remaining browned butter and lobster, season with salt and pepper.
Fill each bun with lettuce and lobster, top with a lobster claw and garnish with chives.
