Ingredients for lobster rolls

Cooked Lobster Meat: Half a pound for that luxurious flavor.

Jerk Seasoning: One tablespoon to bring the heat. I suggest to use walkers wood jerk seasoning, it’s the best!

Mayo: One and a half tablespoons to make it creamy. I don’t use too much mayo because it can quickly become overpowering.

Chopped Chives: One tablespoon for freshness.

Hot Old Bay Seasoning: Half a teaspoon for an extra kick.

Lemon Juice: A squeeze to brighten up the flavors.

Butter: One tablespoon to toast the buns.

Split-Top Hotdog Buns: Two for holding all that goodness. Split top is a must and the traditional way for lobster rolls.

The full written recipe is below on the recipe card.
