Description

Only a few of the hundreds of types of lobsters are caught commercially. But those few species are some of the most heavily harvested creatures in the sea. While lobster can come from just about anywhere, it is the cold-water, North Atlantic lobster which is regarded as the best. The cold pollution-free North Atlantic water produces tender, succulent meat with a rich, luxurious texture. In these cold waters, lobsters grow at a slower rate, which makes the meat firmer and more succulent. The cool temperatures also prevent the salt water from permeating the meat, giving it a noticeably sweeter flavor.

Lobster meat should be white, opaque and firm to touch. Nothing adds flavor and elegance to recipes like sweet, tender lobster meat – the main ingredient for many of New England’s signature dishes!
