🔪Prep Time: 20 minutes

👩‍🍳Cook Time: 18 minutes


1/4 C apple cider vinegar

2 tbsp lemon juice

1/2 tsp granulated sugar

3/4 tsp sea salt, divided

4 C large oyster mushrooms (about 20 mushrooms / 165g), stems cubed, mushroom head torn into thirds *see note

1 (400ml) can hearts of palm, drained from liquid, diced into cubes

1/2 C finely diced celery

1/4 C finely diced red onion

3 tbsp finely chopped chives

4 tbsp minced garlic (about 4 large cloves)

2 tsp finely chopped dill

1/3 C vegan mayonnaise

1 tsp Old Bay seasoning

1/4 tsp smoked paprika + more for garnish

1/4 tsp ground black pepper

2 tsp dulse, finely ground (optional) *see note

4 to 8 pieces bibb or butter lettuce, cut in half along the stem

1/2 C vegan plain sea salt kettle chips, slightly crushed

1/4 C vegan butter, melted

4 vegan New England rolls or hotdog buns, top split


1Preheat the oven to 350°F.

2In a medium saucepan over low to medium heat, combine apple cider vinegar, lemon juice, sugar and a ½ teaspoon of sea salt. Stir until the salt and sugar dissolve and then add the oyster mushrooms. Bring liquid to a low boil and simmer for 8 to 10 minutes until the mushrooms taste marinated.

3If not all the moisture has evaporated, use your hands to squeeze out the excess liquid from the mushrooms and add them into a large bowl. Then add hearts of palm, celery, red onion, chives, garlic, dill, vegan mayo, Old Bay seasoning, smoked paprika, remaining sea salt (¼ teaspoon OR leave out and add to taste just before serving) and ground black pepper. Add powdered dulse, if using. Refrigerate this mixture until assembling sandwiches.

4Brush the melted butter on the inside and outside of the hot dog buns. Toast the buns with the sides facing down for 8 minutes, flipping halfway. Bake until golden brown.

5Take the two halves of the bibb lettuce and place them leaf side up on one half of the rolls. Spoon about 3/4 cups of vegan lobster meat into the rolls and add crushed sea salt kettle chips on top. Serve immediately.
