Lobster dinnerIt’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.

lobster rollA 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.

lobster risottoFor company, lobster risotto is sure to get raves

lobsteras is homemade pasta topped with a lobster sauce.

lobster pot pieLet’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

  1. 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.

  2. 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!

  3. 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 !

  4. 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!

  5. 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

  6. 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.
