Remove the tail meat from the lobster shell using kitchen shears. Remove the meat from the legs and claws by using a hammer to gently crack the shell. Cut the tail, leg, and claw meat into sized pieces. Place in a bowl and chill in the refrigerator for 30 minutes. While the lobster meat is cooling, cut the celery and onion into small diced pieces. Place into a mixing bowl and add the mayonnaise and dry mustard. Add the cold lobster meat and stir the ingredients with a fork to mix well.

For the Lobster Roll:
2ea. Hot dog buns
2 Tbsp lightly salted butter, melted

Heat a skillet over medium heat. Carefully trim the top and the bottom from each hot dog bun with a serrated bread knife. Brush the cut sides with butter and toast each buttered side in the skillet until golden brown in color. Gently open the hot dog bun along the split being careful not to separate the sides of each bun. Lay the lettuce leaves inside each bun. Divide the lobster salad in half and fill each bun with half the lobster salad. Serve on a room temperature plate with lemon wedges and your favorite side dish.
