I like it very simply boiled, very quickly and served with fresh home-made mayonnaise.
I also love it grilled on a beach fire with a simple fresh green salad.

I prefer steamed or boiled but I have also had it broiled.

Actually as long as it can't pinch me, I'm good.

I like to eat it with lemon and butter.

One of my favorite ways is Lobster Newberg, just in that nice rich sauce, no cracking needed. OH MAN, now I'm hungry.

Crack the shell and claws, brush it with a mixture of olive oil, minced shallots, lemon zest and minced Italian parsley. Broil and enjoy!

Enlighten me; I've never had lobster. Does it taste like anything else? I hate to pay so much for something if I am not going to like it. That has kept me from tasting it all this time.

One guy told me it tasted like a really big shrimp and someone else said it doesn't taste anything like shrimp. Does it taste like anything else that you can put your finger on?

Well. . .it doesn't taste like chicken! Lobster taste somewhat like sweet shrimp or crab. It is very rich and prepared simply, is one of the best things you'll ever eat. I like mine boiled, broiled or grilled. Actually, sometimes I boil it for a little while and then put it on the grill to get that char-broiled taste. Squirt a little lime juice on it and it's pure heaven!

It tastes richer then shrimp, its very good. If you like things like shrimp you will probably like it. Have you ever had crab? It tastes similar to that.

If I ever won the lottery, I would eat Lobster everyday. I really love a Lobster roll, dressed very simply, nothing too heavy on it.
