Lobster Seafood Salad Recipe with Green Onions

These hearty lobster salad sandwiches make a generous lunch for two people, especially when served with pickles and potato chips on the side. Fans of lobster will love these rich lobster salad buns, especially with the crunchy green onions, crisp lettuce, aromatic tarragon and gently toasted bread. Buy ready-cooked lobster meat if you are unfamiliar with cooking live lobsters. You can may pick all the meat from the lobster carcass if you are using fresh ones though, and add it to the meat or freeze the carcass for making broth or soup at a later date.

If you do not have fresh tarragon, do not replace it with dried tarragon because it does not taste good and will not do anything for the recipe. If this is the case, just leave it out altogether. You could add a little finely chopped cilantro or parsley instead but that is your choice.

This lobster seafood salad recipe is wonderful served on toasted buns or you could serve it on a pile of lettuce leaves instead, to make a simple salad rather than sandwiches. Lobster is not the cheapest type of seafood you can get but sometimes it is nice to spoil yourself by enjoying wonderful meals like this lobster salad sandwiches recipe.

This is a very simple idea for a sandwich recipe if you think about it – just seafood plus mayonnaise – but the end result of this amazing combination will reassure you that lobster does not require a lot of additions. The pure taste of fresh lobster is usually enough on its own but adding some creamy mayonnaise, a little tarragon, and some salt and pepper makes a truly magnificent lobster salad recipe. Whether you choose to serve this lobster salad on toasted buns or heap it on to a pile of crisp lettuce leaves is up to you, but if you are a fan of crab salad recipes you are sure to enjoy this flavorful alternative just as much as the crab salads.
