In case you haven’t heard, today is National Lobster Day, so go ahead, indulge yourself with your favorite lobster dish.
Around here, every day is lobster day, and until late fall ours come right from the water thanks to my favorite lobster guy.
It’s hard to say what the best way to eat lobster is, but steamed or grilled and served with corn and potatoes is right at the top of the list which doesn’t stop there.
A lobster roll loaded with meat and with only enough mayo to hold it together is lip smacking good, especially when it is enjoyed on a boat picnic.
On warm summer nights, there’s nothing better than a salad made with lobster and fresh corn.
For company, lobster risotto is sure to get raves
as is homemade pasta topped with a lobster sauce.
Let’s not forget lobster pot pie. Just thinking about it sets my mouth to watering!
There’s lobster bisque, lobster cakes, lobster stew, lobster enchiladas, lobster ravioli…..oh heck, I could go on and on as there are so many tasty dishes that can be made with lobster. Believe me, I’m trying to make as many as possible during the months when this tasty crustacean is plentiful in Maine.
i so appreciate your visit and the comments you leave behind

Everything looks so delicious, Linda. Especially the pasta dish!
If we lived closer to the ocean I’d follow your example. Around here the closest thing to lobster you can find is crawfish, unless you want some creature that’s been flown in from the coast. Last time we had lobster was when we were visiting Nova Scotia.
Okay, you’ve got my mouth watering, and there is no lobster within hundreds of miles of me! How wonderful to be able to go buy it from the lobster fisherman just off the water. You have some wonderful ideas for serving it. Just wish I had some to serve. laurie
I’ve never even had/heard of lobster pot pie but it sounds amazing! 0.0
Down here in the heat it’s
All right now, Bubba Gump! Cool your jets! You’re getting us Midwestern folks all in a tizzy fit!! We don’t have access in any way, shape or form to the freshness of seafood that you enjoy. We’re happy to get some that is less than 24-hours old!!! Oh, how we envy you coastal dwellers!
A huge thing here is lobster mac & cheese. I had it at the Capitol Grille a few years back and totally fell in love. The best of both worlds: seaside and countryside!
Enjoy it, baby!
Everything looks so yummy…
I have to say I’m a bit envious of your lobster fest there in Maine! we do have lobster here but they are pricey, so seen as a treat. But nothing beats perfectly cooked lobster. Happy summer !
You are killin’ me here Linda, oh swoon, we almost never have lobster, and when we do I am sure it’s nothing like what you get fresh out of the water from the Lobster man! I have never experienced the joy of a lobster roll, or lobster pot pie, or lobster and corn salad…I might just have to pay you a visit!
Love it all – I just may have to board a plane any day now and fly off to Maine to enjoy these sumptuous treats.
Yummy pics. I love Lobster, but don’t often get to eat it.

Delicious!! I’m so jealous! 🙂
We are heading up to Rockport today to celebrate National Lobster Day! I hope they have some good specials in the restaurants today!
Mass or Mainee?
Mass, and we ended up eating clams in Ipswich rather then lobster in Rockport, but it was fun!
Oooooohhhhhhhhh we are running off to New England this Fall and were web surfing last night picking out restaurants in your lovely Maine to visit, specifically to eat lobster. Lovely photographs my tummy is growling now! One of our favs has been The Stone Dog in Portland for the Lobster Eggs Benedict………but of course it is hard to beat the lobster shacks on the side of the road.
Have always wanted to visit Maine and stuff myself with lobster, a much rarer treat in the part of the world I live in. These all look delish!
