It is true that a lobster salad sandwich makes a great lunch, because it is flavorful and satisfying. The following recipe features Greek yogurt as well as mayonnaise, for a lovely creamy sauce, as well as green onion and celery for some crunch.
You can use hot dog buns, a crusty baguette, or even bread to make this lobster salad sandwich, but toast the cut side of the bun or one side of the bread before adding the lobster salad, so it does not soak through and make the bread soggy. Feel free to add slices of tomato or cucumber to the sandwiches if you want to add more nutrients and color. Although the following recipe suggests serving the lobster sandwiches with fries and coleslaw, the choice of side dishes is yours, and you might prefer to opt for a baked potato or something like rice salad instead.
Also, you might find the coleslaw too creamy to serve with a creamy lobster salad, so perhaps a tossed green salad might suit you better. Other people love the indulgence of this dish and would claim coleslaw and fries to be the perfect accompaniments, so it is your call.
- 3 tablespoons mayonnaise
- 1 finely chopped celery stalk
- ½ cup plain Greek yogurt
- 8 lettuce leaves
- 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
- 1 chopped green onion
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- 2½ cups cooked lobster meat
- 4 hot dog buns or similar
- Salt and black pepper, to taste
- 4 portions coleslaw, to serve
- 4 portions fries, to serve
- 4 lemon wedges, for garnish
- Stir the yogurt, celery, mayonnaise, lemon juice, and green onion together.
- Stir in the lobster meat and season with salt and black pepper.
- Chill this salad for up to 24 hours or until you are ready to use it.
- Split the buns and brush the insides with olive oil.
- Heat a grill pan on the stove and cook the bread, cut side down, for a few minutes or until toasted.
- If you are using bread slices, you can do this in a toaster.
- Line each one with a couple of salad leaves and then add the lobster salad.
- Serve with fries and coleslaw, as well as a lemon wedge on the side.
Serve this lobster salad sandwich with fries and coleslaw for a wonderful lunch or dinner. Making your own lobster salad is very simple, although you can swap the lobster for shrimp or crab if you prefer, or even mix and match those. The white wine you see in the picture is probably something with a fruity edge like Chardonnay, which would be amazing with this lobster roll recipe. You can make the coleslaw and also the lobster salad ahead if you want to, but assemble the sandwiches just before serving, for the freshest and best-tasting results.
