How to Make a Lobster Roll (The Healthy Way)
Lobster rolls are a classic summertime food, but they can also be pretty unhealthy. If you’re looking for a healthy lobster roll recipe, you’ve come to the right place! This recipe features fresh, healthy ingredients and is perfect for an easy weeknight meal. We lighten things up and cut down on the fat and calories by using light mayonnaise and adding in some extra veggies for flavor and texture. The lobster is cooked to perfection and then combined with the flavorful mixture. Finally, we replace the classic white roll with a whole wheat version. It’s a delicious and healthier way to enjoy a lobster roll!
To make this healthy lobster roll recipe, grab a large bowl and combine two tablespoons of light mayonnaise, half of a chopped scallion, half a tablespoon of lemon juice, one teaspoons of freshly chopped chives, one diced celery stalk and black pepper to taste. Cut up four ounces of cooked lobster into large chunks, add them to the mixture and toss to coat. Toast two whole wheat hot dog or brioche buns and finally top them with the lobster mixture.
Lobster meat is relatively low in calories and fat, and the light mayonnaise helps to keep this dish healthy without sacrificing flavor. The diced celery and black pepper add a bit of crunch and spice, while the lemon juice and chives provide a bright and fresh flavor.

More Healthy Seafood Recipes and Meal Ideas
Lobster is a popular seafood choice that is often seen as a luxurious item, reserved for special occasions. However, it can actually be quite versatile and can be prepared in many different ways. Lobster is a healthy option, as it is high in protein and lower in fat. When cooking lobster, it is important to avoid over-cooking, as this can make the lobster tough and chewy. Lobster can be boiled, baked, steamed or grilled.
One common way to prepare lobster is to boil it and then serve it with drawn butter and lemon wedges. Another option is to bake lobster tails with a garlic butter sauce. For a healthier option, try grilling lobster for a smoky flavor and serving it with a fresh salad. It can also be baked with a variety of seasonings, herbs and spices. Some popular lobster recipes include lobster bisque, lobster rolls (like this healthy recipe!) and lobster mac and cheese. There are endless possibilities when it comes to cooking with lobster, so get creative and experiment with different recipes. You might be surprised at how easy and delicious lobster can be.
