A recipe from the story Setting Day.


  • Unsalted Butter ½ cup
  • Split-Top Hot Dog Buns 4
  • Cooked Lobster 4 lbs, shelled, chopped (keep claws intact)
  • Salt
  • Freshly Ground Black Pepper
  • Iceberg Lettuce shredded, ½ cup
  • Chives finely chopped, 2 Tbs

Cook It

  1. In a small pot, melt butter over medium-high heat, and then let it cook and bubble until it starts to foam and smell like toasted nuts and caramel, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat.
  2. Brush each side of the buns with browned butter. Toast on a grill or frying pan until each side is golden brown, 1–2 minutes per side.
  3. In a large bowl, toss together remaining browned butter and lobster, season with salt and pepper.
  4. Fill each bun with lettuce and lobster, top with a lobster claw and garnish with chives.
