For the filling:

  • 1 pound cooked lobster meat, cut into 1-inch pieces

  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice

  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper

  • 1/2 cup finely chopped celery

  • 1/3 cup mayonnaise

For the buns:

  • 4 to 6 New England style split-top hot dog buns

  • 2 to 3 tablespoons soft butter

For serving:

Make the lobster salad:

In a bowl, stir the lobster meat, lemon juice, salt, pepper, celery, and mayonnaise together. Taste and add more salt, pepper, or lemon juice, if you like.
