And gourmands are discovering new ways to appreciate it’s delicacy. Check out these seven ways you MUST experience lobster!
THE LOBSTER DONUT
Rich meets rich in the ultimate combination of fancy and unfrivolous. The Holy Donut of Portland, ME put the lobster donut on the map but they have been popping up all around the Northeast. Kane’s Handcrafted in Boston took it farther with a wildly popular Lobster Role Donut – lobster salad served between two brioche donuts. Now the butter is baked in!
A LOBSTER BLOODY MARY
Sometimes you need a morning cure-all and the bloody mary is a perfect choice. What caould make it even more perfect? Lobster. The Lobster Joint in Brooklyn, NY, serves a bloody mary with a full lobster claw. That will cure the worst of hangovers.
A RAMEN LOBSTER ROLL
Joy of the Cooking with Joy blog created this wildly creative and delicious riff on a lobster roll using ramen noodles and a pound and a half of lobster meat.
Portland’s Oxbow Brewing Company created a tempting saison that combines lobster and sea salt. Available seasonally at the brewery, the beer does not mask the expected lobster brine and sweetness.
LOBSTER ICE CREAM
Also, in the northeast – this time in Cape Cod, Ben & Bill’s Chocolate Emporium has introduced the world to its signature Lobster Ice Cream. With a butter ice cream base, the shop swirls in extra-buttered lobster meat for a salty-sweet treat you will not forget!
Emeril Lagasse created a one-of-a-kind savory lobster cheesecake that is sure to impress any lobster fan. It is relatively east to make and veggies and lobster to a more savory selection of cheeses. The result is a decadent and refined surprise!
