We are experiencing a very bad weather patterns across the country and in Maine as well. There is no catch of lobster around the coast of Maine that cause a huge spike in lobster price. While we still honor all the orders that has placed, we made some price increases on our live lobster products to keep up with the cost rises. We hope for your understanding and hopefully price will come down soon when there is more catch.

The Edible Parts Of Lobster

We started to learn more about lobsters. We want to know exactly the edible parts of lobster. And the result was really interesting, it was a lot different from what we thought of lobster. Let us share with you the insights we have found out! Let's get started! 

Let's learn about the parts of the lobster!

Let's learn about the parts of the lobster!

Lobster Tail

One of the edible parts of a whole lobster and the most popular is the lobster tail itself. The tail is a common part of a lobster for the eater as it is the easiest part to cook. This tail is best because when it needs to run away in a hurry, the lobster hits the tail hard to avoid danger. This makes the tail more muscular and fibrous. And to get all the meat out of the tail, twist the tail until it loosens out of the body. Then use a fork to prune the meat and don't forget the tail fins! Bend them upwards until they split apart to find the delicious crumbs inside.

Claws

Don't miss the softest and sweetest lobster meat, Claws! Pull the claw away from the body, break it open with a special tool, and remove the meat with a fork. After that, enjoy it. Remember to cook lobster before enjoying it!

This is the most desirable part, right?

Knuckles

Some chefs say the chewy knuckles are the best part, but we tried this unimpressive-looking lobster and found it very impressive. The first impression is how difficult it is to remove the meat. You know, it has a lot of spikes on the outside so it's hard to grip. Once you have conquered it, the meat is a worthy gift for the effort you have spent.

Legs

Don't miss the lobster's pretty little legs! It has meat inside. Getting to enjoy the meat inside is also quite easy. You need to tear the legs out of the body, then bite lightly on the shell and use your teeth to squeeze the meat out. Another easier way is to use a dough roller to roll over the lobster's legs to slowly reveal the flesh, thus helping you to protect your teeth. You will enjoy the sweet and soft layers of meat.

Roe

Wow! Have you ever thought of one day enjoying Roe's dishes? We are sure you have not enjoyed it yet. Because it is illegal to exploit the mother lobsters to protect the biodiversity of this species.

But we still want to introduce to you what we find out. Usually, we only see Roe red, quite similar to salmon roe. Actually, the Roe has 2 colors red and black, blue as well. The Roe is small coral balls that you'll find on the body or along the ends of some female lobsters. With Roe, you don't need to cook it, just put it in your mouth. Or mash it into your beaten butter with a dash of garlic and lemon - it will give a lovely pink hue. Lobster nutrition is concentrated here, especially omega 3.

Tomalley

This is the green substance on meat when cooked, and it's basically the lobster's pancreas and liver. Some consider it a delicacy. However, it is known by marine biologists as hepatopancreas and by lobster fans as tomalley. Many in the second group loved the tomalley for its creamy texture and rich flavor. Tastes of this dish have described it as "lobster concentrate". Tomalley is enjoyed by mashing into a sauce, or mixing it with mixed butter and spread on toast.
