Nothing is as good as a lobster direct from Maine. Straight from the cold Atlantic Ocean water and delivered right to your front door from the Maine Lobster Marketing Collaborative and Dorr Lobster Company. A 100% genuine Maine lobster was sent to GGG this week and I just had to share my experience in preparation for National Lobster Day on June 15.
We are huge seafood lovers in my house and my oldest son has a special affinity for lobster (talk about champagne taste) so I knew he would enjoy eating a fresh lobster direct from Maine. Our lobster was fresh and beautiful in color.
I was pleased with the amount of lobster meat I was able to extract from the fresh lobster. My son enjoys lobster is its purest form, boiled in water seasoned with sea salt with a serving of drawn butter and fresh lemon on the side. I plan to cook the leftover lobster meat with some scrambled eggs for a hearty lobster brunch later today.

A fresh lobster direct from Maine was supplied by Dorr Lobster Company and the Maine Lobster Marketing Collaborative – Lobsters from Maine. Samples did not persuade my opinion. As always, opinions are my own.
