New England Lobster Roll Recipe by Woodman’s of Essex
Apparently created by a Milford, Connecticut, restaurateur named Harry Perry in 1927, the Lobster Roll sits nicely in the pantheon of New England culinary triumphs and remains a perennial favorite at Woodman’s.
Lobster Roll Ingredients
2 pounds fresh-cooked lobster meat, cut into chunks
¾ cup mayonnaise
¾ tablespoons granulated sugar
¾ teaspoon apple cider vinegar
How to Make Lobster Rolls
In a bowl, combine sugar and vinegar and stir until sugar dissolves. Add mayonnaise and stir. Put the chunks of lobster meat in a separate bowl and slowly stir in the mayonnaise mixture. How much depends on how much mayonnaise you like it. Serve in a toasted roll or over a salad. Serves 4 to 5.
