6 lobster rolls

  • 2 lobster tails

  • ½ pound peeled, deveined raw shrimp

  • 2 cups seafood salad

  • 4 ounces Cajun crab dip

  • 6 small croissants


  1. Trim celery and green onion ends; place in a pot. Add 2 tablespoons lemon juice, seafood seasoning, and blackening seasoning. Cover with water; bring to a boil.

  2. Stir lobster tails and shrimp into the boiling water. Cook until they float to the top, about 7 minutes. Drain. Remove lobster meat from the shell; cut into bite-sized pieces. Place lobster meat and shrimp in a bowl. Refrigerate until cool.

  3. Transfer celery and green onions to a bowl. Add seafood salad and crab dip. Drizzle remaining lemon juice on top. Mix in cooled lobster meat and shrimp. Season with a little more lemon juice.

  4. Split and stuff croissants with lobster and shrimp salad.

Cook's Note:

If you like spice, season with additional spicy seasoning (such as Slap Ya Mama(R)). You can also use more mayonnaise for the filling if you like.
