How To Make It
While there are numerous ways to make it, the folks of Maine like to dress their chilled lobster chunks with creamy mayo.

Here’s how to do it step by step.
First, grab a large bowl and mix your cooked lobster meat chunks with high-quality mayonnaise. Afterward, add a squeeze of lemon juice to the mixture, a pinch of salt, and a shake of pepper. Finally, fold all ingredients until the lobster chunks are lightly covered in the dressing.
Then, get the hot dog buns, brush them on both sides with sea salt butter, and grill them (or toast them) until they become golden, which usually requires around two minutes per side. Finally, open the top split roll and pile in your chilled lobster chunks until the roll is overstuffed. In the end, you may once again add a spritz of lemon and a shake of salt and pepper. Keep in mind to supply a fork with the sandwich to get each chunk of lobster meat that spills out.
