There is something about eating lobster that feels so….decadent. I’m not sure whether it’s the sense of reward after you have worked to get the meat out of the shell, or maybe it’s that perfect partnership with melted butter? Whatever the reason, it is always a special treat.
We had a gorgeous feast of lobster last night, courtesy of the SO’s brother who lives on Prince Edward Island. They arrived in town with a dozen fresh lobsters, clams, and mussels to feed the clan…so much gorgeous fresh seafood that we couldn’t finish it all. And the kitchen smelled like the sea with everything steaming away – heaven!
Although lobster is plentiful and easy to cook, I realize that I am not ready to make it a regular part of my home cooking. I don’t want to lose that sense of indulging in wonderful luxury when I enjoy my lobster.
