Lobster doesn’t have to be fancy. I like to use my instant pot to steam lobster tails that I buy frozen. I let them defrost in the fridge, then I put them in the instant pot on the steamer insert, add some seasoning, set the pressure to 1 minute on high and quick release after 1 minute of cooking. When I have extra lobster meat, I like to make these simple and easy lobster rolls.

Simple and Easy Lobster Rolls Ingredients

Step 1: Toast bun and butter generously. I used the toaster oven for this step, but you could also use your toaster or regular oven.

Step 2: Roughly chop lobster tails, I like to leave big chunks of lobster. Yum! You can add finely diced celery and onion at this step also, I did not have any or else I would have! A squeeze of lemon or lime juice would be really nice as well.

Step 3: Add mayonnaise and seasoning to taste to lobster meat. I used black pepper and Cajun seasoning.

Step 4: Assemble roll by placing lettuce on bun and top with lobster meat.

Step 5: Enjoy!

These are super easy, and I hope it helps inspire you to try something different with your lobster meat! These are a favorite from Boston, Massachusetts if you are ever in Quincy Market! Make sure to try the lobster rolls. Also tag me on Instagram #xoxotinadesign I would love to see what you make!
