Brown-Butter Lobster Roll

Instructions

SERVINGS: 2

In a large pot of boiling salted water, cook the lobsters until they turn red, 8 to 10 minutes. Allow the lobsters to cool, then remove the meat and chop into ½-inch pieces. Be sure to save your shells to make shellfish stock.

Place a skillet over medium heat and add one tablespoon of the butter. Toast the buns on both sides. Reserve.

Place the remaining 4 tablespoons of butter in a skillet over medium heat. Cook until the butter starts to brown and smell nutty, about 4 minutes.

Fill the toasted bun with the lobster meat and drizzle with the browned butter. Garnish with chives.
