Authentic Cape Cod Lobster Sliders

Authentic Cape Cod Lobster Sliders


  • 1 teaspoon salted butter + extra for buttering the rolls
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 2 shallots, thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoons cognac (we used Hennessey)
  • 1 clove garlic, chopped
  • 3/4 cup 2% milk
  • 1 tablespoon tomato paste
  • 1 tablespoon tarragon, roughly chopped
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 2 1 1/4 pound lobsters, cooked and chopped into bite-sized pieces
  • 2 lettuce leaves, halved
  • 4 small rustic whole grain rolls
  • 1 lemon, cut into wedges


  1. Prepare lobsters as desired, set aside to cool.
  2. Heat butter and olive oil in a saute over medium heat. Saute shallots 5 minutes until soft and fragrant add the cognac, tomato paste and garlic and reduce the heat to low. Heat about 5 more minutes on low (alcohol will burn off) then add milk, tarragon and salt and pepper to taste. Remove from heat.
  3. Toast and butter the rolls. Add a lettuce leave to each roll plus 1/4 of the lobster meat. Add a tablespoon of sauce to each slider.
  4. Serve with grilled corn and coleslaw.
