Do you think the lowly servants enjoyed their lobster meals?

Screw the lobster ! Snow crab, (Spider, opilio, tanner what ever) is way better than freaking lobster. King crab is tasty mind you but the ease of which the snow crab can be cracked by hand and gobbled up combined with the sweet delicate flavor can't be beat by any king crab or lobster. We serve it "legs only" on a plate with "yellow rice" and asparagus with drawn herb garlic butter for dipping. The claw meat and the little leg ends we use in crab cakes the next day. The frozen snow crab that big supermarkets sell or $7.99 per pound is every bit as good as the frozen crab legs shipped out of Alaska that the Alaskan seafood outfits ship you for 37.00 ridiculous dollars per pound , plus shipping !
Those guys are too big for their britches. As for lobster, I say, "SELL IT FOR LESS" !

I wish it still was... Christmas dinner this year was 4 1.75 lb lobsters and Oyster Stew. Yumm! Once you get off the chicken lobsters (1 to 1 1/4 lb's) there is a lot of meat.

Interesting, but not too surprising. In some cases, what was once poor peoples' food is now gourmet or expensive, and what was once reserved to the rich is now available to almost everybody.
