Bateman's lobster rolls recipe



  • 2 egg yolks
  • 1 tbsp dijon mustard
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp white wine vinegar
  • 150ml mild-flavoured olive oil


  • 150g mayonnaise (from recipe above)
  • 50g tomato ketchup
  • 1 long shallot, chopped
  • 4 cornichons, chopped
  • 1 tbsp worcestershire sauce
  • 3 tbsp greek yogurt
  • 1 tsp brandy
  • squeeze of lemon juice


  • 400g cooked lobster meat, or up to 500g (buy it picked or cook it yourself – you will need one large or two smaller lobsters)
  • 4 brioche subs (or up to 6)
  • ¼ Iceberg lettuce, shredded
  • 6 radishes, sliced
  • small bunch of chives, cut into batons


  • STEP 1

    To make the mayonnaise, whisk together the egg yolks, mustard, lemon juice and vinegar with salt and pepper. Add a drop of the oil and whisk together. Continue this drop by drop until the mixture begins to thicken. Once it does you can add the oil in a thin trickle, whisking all the time, until you have a thick mayo – this can also be done in a blender. You won’t need all the mayonnaise, but it will keep in the fridge for three days.

  • STEP 2

    In a separate bowl, make the dressing by whisking together all the ingredients until combined. Chop the lobster into bite-sized pieces, then mix with the dressing and season to taste. The mixture can be made a day ahead and kept in the fridge.

  • STEP 3

    To serve, cut open the buns and toast the cut sides lightly under the grill. Spread a small amount of dressing from the bowl along the buns then add the shredded lettuce. Spoon over the lobster mixture, arrange slices of radish over, scatter with chives and serve.
