This is probably the first recipe I've tried strictly because of the glowing reviews, because I have to admit that the idea of mixing up this salad with melted butter just seemed wrong to me. I had visions of the butter solidifying and giving the salad a greasy mouthfeel. NOT. This was just delicious--rich and creamy, and what I liked the best is that the mayonnaise doesn't overpower the salad as it can have a tendency to do in mayo-based salads. Other than adding some chopped celery for crunch, I didn't change a thing and it did not disappoint. I served this as a wrap, using large flour tortillas and shredded Romaine lettuce. My only complaint is when I tallied up just how much two lobster wraps set us back! This was definitely a decadent, luxurious and delicious treat!

Lobster Snobs Take Note!!! This is UN-BE-LIEV-ABLE!! I love my lobster straight (steamed maybe with melted butter) and rarely have "leftovers" -- but when I did my husband asked for a lobster roll. I decided to humor him and made this recipe. It is wonderful, I would not change 1 single thing about it. The butter gives it a very rich flavor and the mayo does not make it oily or spoil the taste in any way. I encourage you to try this recipe, and if you don't have a pound of lobster meat, adjust the recipe for what you do have -- you will thank Dennie! Thank you Dennie! :)


YUM! Simple and very good. Try adding a spritz of lemon juice!
