When I was a kid, I was terrified of lobsters. Time passed, however, and around age 18 or so I realized that not only are they basically harmless—they’re also delicious. It also doesn’t suck that they’re high in protein and relatively low in calories (one 3-ounce serving contains about 90 calories and 18 grams of protein).
I’ve had lobster served many ways, but one thing I’ve yet to try is preparing lobster at home—aka killing and steaming my own damn dinner. The thought makes me a little squeamish, but I feel like it’s one of those things I should do at least once. After getting this awesome postcard from my aunt today, I think I might have to put it on my spring/summer bucket list.
Unrelated: growing up, I loved that “lobster” rhymed with “mobster.” It’s the little things…
Do you eat lobster? Have you ever made it at home?
