The Albright’s Simple Lobster Roll

Greg and Yunnie Kim Morena, owners of The Albright, are currently at the helm of one of the Santa Monica Pier's most notable attractions. Yunnie’s parents opened SM Pier Seafood in 1977, after emigrating to the United States from Korea, which they successfuly operated for 35 years. In 2013, Yunnie and Greg took over and renamed the restaurant The Albright in honor of the nautical Albright knot which signifies tying together two paths, just as this family restaurant has now tied together two generations. They modernized and streamlined the look while preserving the restaurant’s original character, creating a menu with a commitment to sustainably caught seafood and locally sourced ingredients.  

Serves 2 


1 1/2 lb cooked lobster meat
1/4 cup finely diced celery
1 tsp celery salt
1/4 cup melted butter
1/4 cup real mayo
zest of 1 lemon
1/2 lemon juice
1 tablespoon of chives


Mix all the above ingredients together. Serve on lightly buttered and toasted New England style hot dog bun. Lobster mixture can be made up to 24 hours in advance and refrigerated.

This recipe is fast and versatile. We love it served on a bun but can be served over a bed of greens or even served on a cracker for an appetizer.
