Lobster Dinner

Hmmm, succulent, delicious lobster. The king of crustaceans. Mark your calendar for June 15, which is National Lobster Day. In honor of this holiday, we took a look at the nation’s favorite Lobster recipes.

If you love seafood, you will definitely find lobster to be one of the most delicious types. The lobster looks almost regal, sitting on the plate, and you know with a glance it is going to be a succulent culinary experience. Many believe the best way to enjoy lobster is when it is simply boiled and dipped in melted butter. However, lobster is surprisingly versatile.

Better yet, it is good for you. Lobster meat is a great source of omega three fatty acids, naturally found in many types of shellfish and other fish. They are thought to help promote and improve your heart health, so much so that they’re now being added to many other foods and fresh lobster is a great way to get them naturally. It’s also a great source of protein to keep your energy high.

So here we go! Five great ways to eat lobster.

The classic
Many enjoy lobster when it is simply boiled and dipped in melted butter. The clarified butter gives it a sweet taste. Easy to prepare and delicious, it is a treat that is hard to resist.

Grilled lobster
Grilling lobster tail gives the meat a smoky, rich flavor highlighting all the natural sweet notes of the meat. However, grilling lobster just right without overcooking it on the grill is a skill that must be perfected.

Lobster salad
Fresh lobster salad is hard to beat, and is a perfect luncheon dish as it can be easily prepared ahead of time. Here is a refreshing summer take on the classic by Martha Stewart. Grapefruit brightens this lobster salad made with avocados and hearts of palm.

Lobster rolls
Lobster rolls are a staple summer meal throughout the East Coast. A traditional lobster roll is a sandwich filled with lobster meat soaked in butter and served on a steamed bun, so that the opening is on the top. There are variations, which may contain diced celery or scallion, and mayonnaise. Depending where you order it the traditional New England roll may be substituted by artisan bread.

Lobster bisque
Lobster bisque is a smooth, creamy, strongly seasoned soup of French origin, classically based on a strained broth of crustaceans. Smooth, unlike chowder, which is thick and chunky, it is an elegant soap that warms you from within.
