Bulky and pulpy lobsters have always interested me since I was a kid. Being a resident of Maine, I have seen how fishermen here take careful steps to pick the world’s most coveted shellfish. If I am asked to vote on lobsters I would definitely give Maine picks a 10/10. Now, you must be thinking that I am like any other partial guy. Well!! Let me clear your assumptions first. Maine lobsters are the world’s favorite; they are tastiest and also the fleshiest. Being a Maine guy, I should first of all clarify the reason for Maine picks to taste better than others.
Apart from being fleshy and healthy, Maine lobsters are one step up when it comes to comparing their taste with the spiny counter-parts. If you ask me then, I will say that meat extracted from Maine picks taste a bit sweeter. The great taste of Maine lobsters has evolved from its habitat; the chilled and dark Atlantic waters. A majority of restaurants are selling seafood delicacies to offer gourmands the opportunity to taste the much flavorful Maine picks. Though a bit pricy, I will personally suggest you to not compromise on its rich taste, even if it costs a few more bucks.
Well!! That doesn’t mean you will have to bear up extra costs every time you want to have lobsters. How about preparing them at home? Yes, this will help you save at least 40% of the dining bill.
