      James, to each his own, but I love the combination of flavors with lobster, celery and green onions on a lobster roll. Thanks for the comment!

      Celery, I don't think so! I have tasted them with celery and the flavour of the celery is so overpowering, it takes away from the flavor of the lobster, and after all, if you are paying big money to buy lobster, what you want to tase is lobster, not veggies. At least when using lettuce, lettuce really doesn't add any flavor. The same goes for adding green onions or scallions, as they too take away from the lobster.
