Looking for a creative way to change up the menu for your next luau? Why not try a buttery, Northeastern lobster roll on a sweet King’s Hawaiian Mini Sub?

While these foods come from almost half a world apart, they create a savory flavor combination that’ll wow your ohana. I served this simple lobster roll to a few friends and they were quite impressed. You don’t have to let your family and friends in on how easy it is to make this dish.

You’ll need:
  • 1 small lobster tail
  • ¼ cup real mayonnaise
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 1 tablespoon of butter
  • 4 King’s Hawaiian Mini Sub Rolls
  • Salt & Pepper to taste
  • This yields 4 servings.

Start by submerging the lobster tail in boiling water. It will turn bright red when it’s finished boiling.

Meanwhile, melt the butter in a frying pan and stir in the minced garlic. Sizzle for about 60 seconds. Then combine melted butter and garlic with mayonnaise, salt and pepper.

Once the lobster is finished cooking, remove the meat from the shell. Begin by twisting the end of the tail off. Then use meat scissors to cut down the center of the shell. Dice meat into bite-sized pieces. Stir together with the mayonnaise.

Spread a thin layer of butter onto the inside of the King’s Hawaiian Mini Sub Roll. Gently brown each piece.

Fill the King’s Hawaiian Mini Sub Roll with the buttery, lobster and serve!

I used these cute red and white paper hot dog holders. Line them with parchment paper to give a little restaurant touch. Best of all, no dishes! What are your favorite ways to change up the traditional luau?
