Lobster Rolls are s summer typical dish especially in The Maritimes (also called the Maritime provinces or the Canadian Maritimes) and New England states of USA where this dish is originally from. Canadian Maritimes is a region of Eastern Canada consisting of three provincesNew BrunswickNova Scotia, and Prince Edward Island (PEI). In those Canadian Maritimes, there is usually a lobster festival which is held annually on June.  

Beside New England state, those 3 Canadian provinces are very popular with theirs seafood products, especially Lobster . Since the lobster that I got is from Nova Scotia, I would say this recipe will be my way of “Nova Scotian Lobster Rolls” as I was adding something not a regular one to be added nutmeg and chilli powder. For us, the Dutch and Indonesian who enjoy both nutmeg and chilli powder.

Just before you enjoy the rolls, drizzle lemon on the lobster will lift up a slightly sweet taste that is from the lobster itself
