  • 6 good-quality hot dog buns (brioche if you can get them)
  • snipped chives (optional)
  • good-quality potato crisps, to serve
  • gherkins, to serve

Method

  1. Crack the lobster, remove all the meat, cut it into large chunks and set aside. (Lobster shells can be kept to make a delicious soup.)

  2. Mix the mayonnaise with the lemon juice, celery, cayenne and a small pinch of salt, then fold the lobster through to combine. Taste and adjust the seasoning. If eating straight away, leave at room temperature – or chill for up to 1 day in advance.

  3. To serve, split the rolls and lightly butter on all sides, including the outside. Heat a griddle pan and griddle the rolls in batches on all sides. Divide the lobster mix between the rolls, scatter with chives (if using) and serve on a platter with napkins, a bowl of crisps and some gherkins.

Made this as part of our Christmas day starter and it was extremely popular. Wouldn't do it too often but with frozen cooked lobsters from a popular German discount supermarket proving especially delicious I'll certainly do it again!
