Lusting for a “Lobstah Roll”? Cape Cod Lobster Rolls are simply the best on the planet!
Our two favorite spots for great lobster rolls are:
Sesuit Harbor Café in Dennis
This gem of a seafood shack is the real deal. Nestled in the back of a working marina, this delightful café dishes up one of the finest lobster rolls we’ve ever had—and their whole belly fried clams are awesome, too!
Actual picture of the one Nancy ate – yummy!
They even offer lobster roll cruises on Cape Cod Bay. Climb aboard the S.S Lobster Roll, enjoy the views from Sesuit Harbor, and relish your lobster roll and favorite beverages on the water. Spectacular sunsets free-of-charge!
The Canteen in Provincetown
Housed in a 200-year-old building in the heart of Provincetown, this casual New England eatery has quickly become a P’town institution. Their hot and cold lobster rolls are created with local lobsters shucked by hand, and can be enjoyed in the communal dining room overlooking the bustle on Commercial Street.
Top off your meal with a “Frosé” – frozen rosé wine that is simply delicious on a spring or summer day.
We also love Nancy’s home-made “Lobstah Rolls” with fresh lobster meat from
Fishermen’s View Seafood Market in Sandwich.
Nancy’s “Lobstah Roll” Recipe
(Makes 2 yummy rolls)
3/4 pound of fresh cooked lobster meat (or 2 cooked lobsters, cracked and take meat out)
2 – 3 tablespoon Hellmann’s® mayonnaise
Ground black pepper
A pinch of finely chopped thyme or chives & a splash of lemon juice
The Lobster Salad: Chop the lobster meat into small chunks. Mix in mayonnaise, sprinkle in herbs, pepper, and a drizzle of lemon juice, to taste.
(Be sure to taste at least 3 times to make sure it’s good — preferably before someone else gets to it!). Chill.
The Roll: Take 2 cheap store-brand hot dog rolls, butter them length-ways, and toast them in a hot pan or griddle. Fill the roll abundantly with the lobster salad.
The Necessary Accoutrements:
*Crack open a fresh bag of Cape Cod® Potato Chips
*Get some pickles
*Pop open a Cape Cod Beer
