Lobster Sandwich:

Okay, so my friend Mr Homard didn’t make it to dinner, as I got busy, instead I made him into an open face sandwich.

This is not your typical New England Style sandwich on hot dog buns, which was born from the fact that (A) I can’t stand Hot Dog Buns and (B) I had the Italian Bread on hand.

To say that this is an easy dish is a bit of an understatement, point of fact, there is almost zero clean up and you really aren’t doing a whole lot of technical cooking.

But hey, who cares cause sometimes the simplest things bring the greatest pleasure and this Sandy is sure to please.


  • Lobster ($20)
  • 3 T Butter ($0.15)
  • Chives ($0.10)
  • 1/8 t of smoked paprika
  • Tarragon , a few leaves minced finely ($0.15)
  • 2 pieces Italian Bread


  • Check your emotions at the door.
  • Take one live lobster and submerge it in 12 qt pot of boiling water lower to a simmer and cook for 10 minutes. Remove from pot and let cool to room temp.
  • Melt butter and cool. Mix in minced chives and paprika.
  • Once the lobster has cooled, use a cleaver to crack the shell and remove all of the meat from the tail and the claws.
  • Mix the meat with your warm butter and herbs and place on top of your toasted bread.
  • Serve and enjoy

Cost: Approximately $21 for two people


  • Prep: about 2 Min
  • Cook: 10 Min + Resting 30 Min
  • Finish: 1Min
  • Total Time:  Approximately 15 Min without including resting time.

Final Thoughts:

Don’t whine about the ethics of cooking a living creature, you are on the top of the food chain. Enjoy it.

Now go buy yourself a lobster and make yourself a sandwich, your stomach will thank you.

Happy Cooking~
