Summer is the season of lobster rolls. They do exist outside the warmer months, but think about it: a buttery, squishy roll filled to bursting with hearty tail meat, sweet knuckle meat and succulent claws all held together by a thin veil of mayo, possibly a little chopped celery or chives, and that’s it. This sandwich’s beauty, like a good BLT or tuna melt, lies in its utter simplicity. Check through our selection of lobster roll recipes, stories and field reports — then hit the kitchen (or the Yelp) and make that summer magic happen.
