Lobster Rolls...The best lobster roll recipe!

We'll eat the best, the better to live
From forest, sea and dell:
but the rarest joy Nature can give,
is found in a lobster shell

It's that time of year when the warm weather brings friends and family back to Ogunquit Maine. Its also time for me to go to see the "lobster man" on the dock. Lobsters along the Maine coast are plentiful. There are numerous lobster shacks, fishmongers and purveyors. Lobster is so common, that the local health club sells lobsters in the gym!
We have our traditional authentic Maine lobster roll recipe, that we will make for family.....

The secret to great tasting Maine lobster roll,  starts with fresh Maine lobster. We get the lobster right off the dock.  Boil several lobsters. then let cool. Crack open lobsters and use the best meat: tail and claws. We don't use the knuckles for our lobster rolls, we use the best part of the lobstah! Here is what you will need.
5 or 6 lobsters
3 heaping tablespoons of Hellmann's or Cains mayonnaise
2 sticks of celery chopped finely
2 dashes of sea salt or kosher salt
dash of  pepper
1  dash of paprika
New England style hot dog rolls
1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted

1. Mix all ingredients, except the butter and hotdog rolls; keep chilled until ready to use

2. Brush unsalted butter on each side of hotdog roll and grill in pan or on barbecue
3. Split the hotdog rolls (but not all the way through the bread) and fill with the lobster mix

Serve with chips, pickle slice and coleslaw. Enjoy!  Best to enjoy outside on a beautiful day!
