Langostino Rolls

1 May

I’ve never had a lobster roll NE style but I know I want to! Until then, this will do just fine.

Time: 10 minutes                    Serves: 2


  • 1/2 lb langostino tails (I got them from Trader Joe’s cooked and just ran them under cold water to defrost)
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 stalks celery, diced
  • 3-4 large green onions, chopped
  • 1/4 tsp salt – or to taste
  • 1/8 tsp pepper – or to taste
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 8″ sub buns
  • softened butter
  • leaf/butter/bibb lettuce

How to make it

  • Roughly chop langostino tails of some are larger then others.
  • Combine mayo, celery, onions, s&p, and lemon juice in a medium mixing bowl. Place in refrigerator.
  • Cut a v-shap into top of sub buns and remove top portion. Spread some softened butter on inside of v and inner sides of top pieces. Place in top rack and broil on 425F for 1 minute, or until just lightly browned.
  • Place leaf lettuce inside each bun.
  • Toss langostino tails with mayo mixture. Distribute atop lettuce leaves on each sub bun. Place to parts of buns on top and serve, preferably with potato chips. I enjoyed my sandwich with McClure’s Garlic & Dill Pickle Chips, locally made in Detroit (and Brooklyn), which may be purchased here if you’re not in the area.
