As I was looking through old pictures for this website, I came across some images from my trip to New York last summer, and I suddenly had the craving for a lobster roll.  Luckily, Ralphs had imitation lobster on sale, so I picked up a few packages and some rolls from the bakery.  This isn’t quite the same as a traditional lobster roll, so I changed the name.


  • 1 (8oz) package imitation lobster meat
  • 1 T mayonnaise
  • 1/2 t lemon juice
  • 1 green onion, chopped
  • 1 celery stalk, chopped
  • ¼ t parsley
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 T Parmesan cheese
  • Hot and sweat peppers
  • Lettuce or spinach
  • Tomato, sliced
  • Sandwich rolls


Mix lobster meat, mayonnaise, lemon juice, onion, celery, parsley, salt, and pepper in a bowl.   Set aside.

Heat oven to 270 degrees.  Slice open rolls and sprinkle parmesan cheese inside each roll.  Warm in the oven for 3-6 minutes until lightly toasted.

Spoon lobster into roll.  Finish with lettuce, tomato, and peppers if desired.   Makes 2-4 sandwiches.
