Some Advice on lobster
Here are a few basic tips for choosing the best quality
live lobsters are most commonly greenish brown/black,
but can also be blue, yellow, red or very rarely white.
Color does not affect flavor or texture.
lobsters should be active with their claws held up
(not hanging limply) and with their tails curled under
marks or holes in the shell are the result of wear
and tear, or indicate an older lobster has not recently
shed its shell. They are not harmful in any way.
Hard or New?:
Choose hard or new shell lobster, depending on your
preference. Hard shells are fuller, but require utensils
to gain access to the meat. New shell lobsters have
recently molted (shed their old shell) and are growing
into their new shells. A lobster increases in size
by about 20% with each molt.
