I love seafood and lobster is one of my favorites. I love baked lobster in garlic butter, lobster bisque, lobster mac & cheese. It doesn't matter to me as long as it is not over cooked. When lobster is cooked to perfection the meat is succulent, tender, and irresistible. Melting in your mouth with each bite. Lobster rolls can be serve cold or warm, either way they are scrumptious, sweet delicious bites of the sea.
Did You Know
Although lobster is considered to be a gourmet dish today, lobsters were considered the "poor man's chicken" and primarily used for fertilizer or fed to prisoners and slaves. Lobster was considered to be dirt cheap and plentiful in supply. So it was a way to save money.
