Lobster Roll: A Seaside Delicacy with a Kewpie Twist


Our Lobster Roll is a romantic culinary experience that captures the essence of the north eastern seaboard of America. Each bite is filled with succulent lobster meat, enhanced by the bright, citrusy notes of lemon. The dish blends the richness of lobster with the comfort of a classic roll, that provides a comforting gourmet experience.

Kewpie Synergy

The standout star in this maritime recipe is the KEWPIE Mayonnaise. Its silky, rich texture and unique umami flavor elevate the lobster to new heights, creating a perfect balance with the zesty lemon and fresh herbs. KEWPIE Mayonnaise doesn’t just complement the lobster; it transforms it. It’s the bridge between the robust flavors of the sea and the delicate, nuanced taste of Japanese culinary artistry.


Makes 1 regular roll

  • 8 oz. cooked lobster meat
  • 4 Tbsp. KEWPIE Mayonnaise
  • 2 tsp. lemon juice
  • 1 tsp. lemon zest
  • ¼ tsp. salt
  • Dash of black pepper
    1 celery stalk, finely chopped
  • 1 Tbsp. chopped fresh chives
  • 1 split-top brioche hotdog bun
  • 1-1/2 Tbsp. butter


  1. Sauce Creation: In a bowl, whisk together KEWPIE Mayonnaise, lemon juice, lemon zest, salt, and black pepper.
  2. Lobster Prep: Warm butter in a frying pan. Add lobster meat just until heated through. Transfer the warmed lobster into the sauce mixture and gently fold to coat. Preserve the remaining butter in the pan.
  3. Final Mix: Stir in chopped celery and chives into the lobster and sauce mixture.
  4. Bun Toasting: Reheat the same pan. Toast the bun, cut-side down, until it reaches a golden-brown hue.
  5. Assembly: Pile the lobster mixture into the toasted bun and serve immediately. For a cold variant, skip warming the lobster.

Kewpie Pro Tip

The secret to a perfect Lobster Roll lies in the balance of flavors and textures. The KEWPIE Mayonnaise should envelop the lobster, enhancing but not overpowering its natural sweetness. The acidity of the lemon and the crunch of the celery provides a refreshing contrast. Toasting the bun in the butter used for the lobster infuses it with an extra layer of flavor, making every bite a luxurious experience.
