Ingredients

How to make it

  • If you are using live lobsters, steam them until fully cooked; allow to cool to room temperature. Crack and remove meat from claws, knuckles, and tails. Remove any cartilage from claws and the intestine from the tails.
  • Cut the lobster meat into 1/2- to 3/4-inch dice. If using whole lobsters, you can pick all the meat from the carcasses and add it to the meat, or freeze the carcasses for soup or stock.
  • Place the diced cucumber in a colander; let stand for at least 5 minutes to drain excess liquid.
  • Combine lobster, cucumber, mayonnaise, and scallions in a bowl. Season with a bit of pepper if needed; it is unlikely that salt will be needed. Cover with plastic wrap; chill for at least 30 minutes before serving.
  • Heat a lO-inch skillet over medium heat. Spread the sides of the hot dog buns with the butter, using 1/2 tablespoon on each side. Place the buttered buns in the hot pan and toast, without moving, until golden brown on one side, about 1 minute. Turn and cook the other side, about 1 minute more. Remove from heat.
  • Open buns; place in paper bun holders or on small plates. Place a lettuce leaf to the side of each bun. Divide lobster salad evenly among them. Serve with pickles and potato chips on the side.
