Chef's Note

 Seafood lovers rejoice! Lobster have arrived for a limited time - catch this Atlantic favourite while you can.

This traditional Maritime dish is made with Gaspé Peninsula lobster, creamy mayonnaise, celery, and served in a traditional white bun. It makes the perfect grab and go lunchtime treat, but don’t forget the kettle chips and dill pickle!

Cook's Note: Place lobster salad in refrigerator for 5 to 10 minutes. This allows the salad to absorb the flavorings.
