Another Very Important Reason to Stock Up on Hot Dog Buns
We love lobster rolls for their perfect pairing of high- (lobster) and low-end (hot dog bun) ingredients. This recipe for the quintessential Maine sandwich, from the new book Real Maine Food
, by the founders of Luke's Lobster, demonstrates just how delicious the lobster roll can be, if you follow two key points. First, use split-top buns. They sit upright on a flat bottom and have bread-y (rather than crusty) sides, so you can butter and grill the outside to the perfect crispness. Second, don't mix the lobster meat with anything; you want its delicate flavor to shine. Spread mayo on the inside of the buns, drizzle butter over the meat, sprinkle seasoning on top and that's it.
