  • Remove the shells and dice lobster meat into bite-sized pieces.

  • Melt 1 tablespoon butter in a 12-inch frying pan. Add 2 buns and turn to coat with butter. Toast over low heat, turning once, about 2 minutes. Transfer to a plate. Repeat with 1 tablespoon butter and remaining buns.

  • Melt remaining 6 tablespoons butter in the same pan. Toss in lobster pieces. Cook over low heat, stirring almost constantly, for 3 minutes. Add paprika and salt; continue to stir until lobster is opaque, about 2 minutes more.

  • Line toasted buns with lettuce. Fill with lobster. Drizzle any remaining butter on top.

Cook's Note:

If you also want to make lobster risotto, reserve the water used to steam the lobster tails. Add 2 cups water and the shells after removing the meat. Steam for 7 minutes. Strain and use as a base for risotto.
