The OMG lobster rolls (as in “Oh my goodness, that’s a lot of lobster”) contain just shy of a half-pound of lobster, heavy on the rich claw meat, drenched in melted creamery butter and heaped onto a warm bun.

Place 2 cups of water in a large pot. Ensure the pot is large enough for a lobster to lie on the bottom. Lobsters should not be totally submerged in water. You want to steam it rather than boil it.
Bring water to boil.
Place lobster in a pot. Place lid on top. Steam for approximately 20 minutes. The lobster will be bright red when done. Remove lobster from the pot.
Chill until lobster is cool enough to handle. About 30 minutes and up to 24 hours.
Using a nutcracker, crack open the tail and claws. Pick lobster meat from the shell. Roughly chop meat into bite-size portions and place on microwave-safe plate.
Melt butter in a frying pan. Reserve or set aside about ½ ounce (14 g) of the melted butter in a frying pan. Using the reserved butter, coat both sides of the hot bun. Over medium heat toast both sides of the bun until golden brown. Remove from heat.
Place warm lobster meat on a toasted hot dog bun.
Drizzle with remaining melted butter and enjoy!
