1 1/2 lbs. Maine Lobster, shell-on
1/4 teaspoon sesame
1/4 teaspoon fennel
1/4 teaspoon celery salt
1/4 teaspoon Korean chili pepper
2 teaspoons mayonnaise
1/4 teaspoon, plus as needed Sriracha chili sauce
2 bacon strips, cut into thirds

Grind sesame, fennel, celery salt and Korean chili pepper until fine. Combine mayonnaise with dry spice blend. Add sriracha. Reserve, refrigerated, at least 15 minutes. Separate claws and tail from body of Maine lobster, reserving body for another use. Cook claws in a pot of boiling water for 9 minutes, and tail for 7 minutes. Remove Maine lobster from boiling water and chill in ice water. Remove Maine lobster meat from shells and chop into 1/2-inch cubes. Combine Maine lobster meat with spiced mayonnaise. Spoon 2 ounces Maine lobster salad in each mini brioche roll. Top each with a piece of bacon and 2 thin slices of tomato and skewer with bamboo skewers. Plate 3 sliders per serving, and serve with additional sriracha if desired.
