Lucky for us, in Nova Scotia, Lobster rolls can be enjoyed all year round. Try this recipe to satisfy your lobster roll cravings this spring, summer, winter or fall.



6 cups  Freshly cooked lobster meat, cut into large pieces, chilled
 1 cup  Mayo
1 cup  Celery, diced small
1/2 cup  Red onion, diced small
3 tbsp  Pommery (whole grain) mustard
1 tbsp  Dijon mustard
3 tbsp  Fresh tarragon, chopped
3 tbsp  Green onion, chopped
1  Lemon, zested and juiced
Salt To taste


6 Sub rolls OR sausage buns
3 tbsp Butter, melted


Makes: 6 rolls

  1. In a large bowl mix all ingredients together, excluding the lobster. When all ingredients are mixed thoroughly, gently fold in the cooled, cooked lobster meat being careful not to overwork the mixture. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
  2. Preheat a barbecue. Brush buns with melted butter and place on grill upside down – buns will grill quickly so keep a close watch! Rotate to get grill marks on both sides.
    NOTE: Another option is toasting the buns in the oven, or open in a pan with butter
  3. Remove lobster mixture from fridge and spoon equal amounts of filling into the freshly toasted rolls. Enjoy!
