Lobsta! Lobsta! Lobsta!
Lobster rolls are as easy as it gets. The only intimidating part is getting the meat out of tail, and its not that intimidating. I use scissors to cut along the shell and crack it open from there. YMMV.
We don’t get the traditional split top buns here in southern california, so i improvise. If you do in your area, use em!
