10-Minute Ranch Lobster Rolls

Pre-cooked frozen lobster makes for an ultra-quick lobster roll filling, and you’ll love this ranch-flavoured twist on the classic. Tails are very meaty, but you can also use claws for an even more budget-savvy option. Tortilla chips make a great side, and we won’t blame you if you crush up a few as a lobster roll topping for added crunch!


  • 12 oz (340 g) fresh or frozen shelled cooked Canadian lobster meat, picked through
  • 3 tbsp (45 g) mayonnaise
  • 3 tbsp (45 mL) buttermilk
  • 1 tsp (5 mL) lemon juice

  • A pinch each of onion powder and garlic powder
  • Pinch each salt and pepper
  • 1 stalk celery, finely chopped
  • 1 green onion, finely chopped
  • 4 brioche hot dog buns

Chef's Tips
