I love summer food. It’s the time for grilling out and BBQ’s, popsicles and all kinds of frozen desserts, picnics and beach days full of all kinds of snacks.
Now I love seafood, and lobster is one of my favorites, but I had never had a gluten free lobster roll before. We have always grilled it or broiled it.
Fun Fact about Florida- We don’t actually get whole lobsters here in Florida, we only eat the tails. I’ve actually never had a whole lobster!
How to Serve a Gluten Free Lobster Roll
I learned something when I was researching traditional lobster rolls. While they are served on a hot dog bun, they are actually cut from the top of the bun, instead of the side like a for a hot dog.
Schar makes some really good gluten free hot dog buns and they were perfect for these gluten free lobster rolls. Fluffy, but holds together great. No soggy rolls here!
The buns come 4 to a pack and don’t need to be refrigerated or frozen. Little side tip- Schar’s stay fresh packaging makes them great for hurricane season. Keep a few Schar breads on hand just in case the storm hits!
Lobster Roll Ingredients
Lobster rolls are really simple to make. It’s basically a lobster salad with fresh herbs, mayo, and a little lemon.
I personally boiled my lobster tails, but you can also grill or broil them. Whatever works best for you.
A little tip- double check that your lobsters are fresh. When you look at the tail it should be white on the end and smell clean. If it’s at all gray, go somewhere else. Unfortunately, I have learned from experience how bad lobster can smell when it’s bad. You don’t want that experience!
After my lobster is cooked, I like to toss it in a pan with a little bit of melted butter. Just adds a little bit of flavor before mixing in themayo, herbs, and lemon.
Do you have a summer seafood recipe you can’t live without? This gluten free lobster roll is definitely on my list!
Any kind of protein salad would be great with these rolls. I can’t wait to try them with this Best Avocado Egg Salad from Cooking LSL!
If you can’t find Schar hot dog buns at your local store, feel free to ask them to carry them or you can order them on Amazon!
