Give a refreshing twist to classic lobster roll - These Summer Lobster Rolls filled up with vibrant and healthier ingredients for the perfect summer meal!
A classic all-American favorite, these summer lobster rolls makes the best use of hot dogs buns and succulent lobster.
I've tried lobster rolls before, but I always found them a bit too rich. So I much prefer my own version ( so I know exactly what goes in).
To make lobster rolls, you only need very simple ingredients:
- lobster tails
- frozen sweetcorn and garden peas
- greek yogurt
- sour cream
- spring onion
- and hot dog buns ( even better if you can find brioche buns)
Other than that, I like to add some freshly chopped cilantro and red chili, to give a nice spicy kick and balance the sweetness of the veggies.
These light summer lobster rolls are very quick and easy to make, and come together in just as little as 20 minutes.
Start by steaming the lobster tails, in the meantime blanch the sweetcorn and peas and grill the buns.
Then, all you have to do is mix together the lobster meat with the veggies, sour cream and greek yogurt , some lemon juice and zest, chopped cilantro and chili.
Don't forget to season well with sea salt and freshly cracked black pepper.
There you go, your delicious lobster mixture is all ready to be stuffed in the buns and go straight into your mouth!
I really hope you give these awesome and light summer lobster rolls a try.

I love the Iceland lobster tails. Such an indulgent ingredient.
These are so trendy at the moment, who would have thought you could buy everything from Iceland!

Iceland is great for it's range of base ingredients and convenience. This is a great recipe and reminds me of my sister. She lives in Canada and LOVES lobster!
Ohh I desperately want to go to Canada ( maybe because I'm a HUGE lobster lover too :D)

Well these are definitely more fancy than your standard hot dog! So surprised that Iceland sells frozen lobster - and that it's pretty good value!
I was so surprised too! And at that price they're absolutely a keeper!
