Today is National Lobster Day, so what could be better than a classic lobster roll recipe from Maine, the state best known for its lobster? Mainers love to keep food simple, and this recipe is a perfect example -- just lobster and mayonnaise served on a top-split hot dog bun, the latter preferably toasted with a little butter. If you must you can gussy it up with additions like celery or tarragon, or even both, but don't expect anyone from Maine to thank you for that! You can also check out more lobster recipes here. Even simpler, just serve cooked lobster with a little butter -- it really doesn't get much better than that.
