Spread tortilla chips on a 10-inch, wax paper-lined paper plate. Layer the crab, lobster and shrimp over the chips. Sprinkle with cheese. Microwave at 50 percent until cheese melts, 1 1/2 to 2 1/2 minutes.

In large nonstick skillet, melt 2-3 tablespoons butter over medium heat. Place sandwiches in skillet and spread remaining butter over sandwich tops. Cook sandwiches until bottom bread is golden brown, about 3 minutes. Using a spatula, carefully flip sandwiches, pressing down gently.

In Maine you’re likely to find lobster rolls served two ways. Innovators prefer a crunchy, tangy and slightly spicy version of the lobster salad that includes celery, lettuce, lemon juice and a pinch of cayenne. Purists leave out those ingredients because they believe nothing should interfere with the mix of sweet tender summer lobster and mayonnaise
Four 1- to 1 1/4-pound lobsters
1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
Salt and freshly ground pepper
1/4 cup finely diced celery
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
Pinch of cayenne pepper
4 top-split hot dog buns
2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
1/2 cup shredded Boston lettuce
Prepare a large ice-water bath. In a very large pot of boiling salted water, cook the lobsters until they turn bright red, about 10 minutes. Using tongs, plunge the lobsters into the ice-water bath for 2 minutes, then drain.
Twist off the lobster tails and claws and remove the meat. Remove and discard the intestinal vein that runs the length of each lobster tail. Cut the lobster meat into 1/2-inch pieces and pat dry, then transfer to a strainer set over a bowl and refrigerate until very cold, at least 1 hour.

It all could’ve been condos. When Susan Povich and her husband Ralph Gorham bought their property in Brooklyn’s Red Hook neighborhood nearly 10 years ago, they thought of turning it into an apartment building. But the longtime Red Hook residents received push back from the city (the building was zoned for manufacturing) and then the 2008 financial crisis happened; the cost of completing the project would have far outweighed any rent they could have earned from the hypothetical apartments. And so, after returning home from a November trip to Povich’s grandfather’s home in Maine, the couple decided to change gears: They would create a lobster pound. In April of the following year, Red Hook Lobster Pound was officially born.
Pour water into a large pot to a depth of 1 inch; bring to a boil and salt generously. Add lobsters, cover, and cook until bright red, 8–10 minutes. Transfer lobsters to a rimmed baking sheet and let cool.
Crack lobster shells, pick meat from tail and claws, and cut into 1/2-inch pieces. Mix lobster, celery, lemon juice, chives, and 2 tablespoons mayonnaise in a medium bowl; season with salt and pepper and add more mayonnaise, if desired.
Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Spread flat sides of buns with butter. Cook until golden, about 2 minutes per side; fill with lobster mixture.
DO AHEAD: Lobster meat can be prepared 1 day ahead. Cover and chill. Toss with remaining ingredients just before serving.
