Tonight I have decided to come clean with everyone and divulge a secret of mine: I’m a lobster fanatic/connoisseur and dream about lobster on a regular basis. Lobster and butter, lobster and pasta, lobster and sushi, lobster and my old leather shoes. I’ll eat lobster with anything.
Given my fanatical lobster beliefs, I am often asked questions by friends, family and clients about the delicious critters. I have decided to list a few of the questions below, which will hopefully be helpful.
1) Should I boil or steam lobsters?
My personal opinion is to never boil lobsters and always steam them. Unless you will be drinking 1-2 gallons of boiling broth once you pull the lobsters out, why waste the goodness? Steam lobsters to cook them in their shell and retain the flavor.
2) What is your favorite lobster dish?
Honestly, I’ll take a 3 lb. steamed lobster with a tub of butter. Healthy? No. Delicious? You betcha!
3) How many legs does a lobster have?
According to the Maine Aquarium website, a lobster has 5 pairs of legs.
4) What is a lobster’s biggest predator?
By a large margin, Aaron Schoenberger is a lobster’s worst nightmare. Breakfast, lunch, dinner and in between — I eat it up.
Moral of the story: if you enjoy eating lobster and want to enjoy your lobster dinner in a public place, be sure I’m far away and your lobster is not left unattended because I’ll snag it.
