A lobster roll on a long black plate with greens on top and a dish of potato chips in the background with a glass of water and a folded grey napkin.

California Style Lobster Roll

lobster salad, watercress, salt + vinegar chips

STARS

A taste of “summah” on the Cape—with a West Coast twist—the star of this dish is tender lobster. Toss it with mayo, onion, celery, and Old Bay seasoning to form a delectable mixture just perfect for spooning liberally into a toasty warm roll, topping with watercress, and finishing with a zingy squeeze of lemon. Try some salt and vinegar kettle chips on the side.
