Mention Maine and it seems the first thing people think about is lobster. It is true that lobster is plentiful in Maine and at a lesser cost than in many places so people do indulge when visiting.
Where do you find these tasty crustaceans? Along the coast, they are available at any number of roadside shacks selling lobster in all its forms.
Perhaps the most well know is Red’s Eats in Wiscassett.
I’m not sure how it got so famous, but rain or shine you can be sure there is a line of folks waiting to order.
Red’s may draw the crowds, but I like best the shacks that are on the water.
There you can eat outside and watch the comings and goings of the lobster boats.
You can be sure there is competition among these lobster shacks with each one claiming to serve the best. Now, I can tell the difference between lobster rolls, but with steamed lobsters it’s hard to distinguish among them.
When it comes to lobsters, there are two places I enjoy them most. One is on the boat anchored off an island enjoying a picnic with a good lobster roll, one that is mixed with a little mayonnaise and nothing more.
The other is at home where we serve up some pretty good lobster be it steamed or as an ingredient in a tasty dish.
No matter how it’s prepared, I never get tired of it and hope those lobsters continue to abound off the Maine coast.
i so appreciate your visit and the comments you leave behind
