Crawfish & Catfish Festival

Lobster roll for Crawfish Fest


4 (1 1/2-pound) cooked lobsters or 4 lobster tails or 1 1/2 pounds lobster meat

1/2 cup mayonnaise

3 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice

2 inner celery stalks and leaves, finely chopped

2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley leaves

Salt and freshly ground black pepper

4 rolls, split and lightly toasted

Melted butter, for brushing

Remove the meat from the lobsters, chopping any large chunks into bite-size pieces. In a bowl, combine the lobster meat, mayonnaise, lemon juice, celery, parsley, and salt and pepper to taste.

Cook's Note: Place lobster salad in refrigerator for 5 to 10 minutes. This allows the salad to absorb the flavorings.

Brush cut sides of the rolls with melted butter and fill with the lobster salad.
