What About Jumbo Lobster?
There are differing opinions on the quality of taste between a smaller lobster and a jumbo lobster in Maine. If the lobster is cooked properly, a six-pound lobster will be just as delicious as a 1 ¼ pound lobster. But care must be taken not to overcook any lobster as the meat will toughen quickly. Steaming is the best and most forgiving way to cook a jumbo lobster.
The Maine lobster lives in the wild and is still harvested much as they were 100 years ago. Lobster fishermen go out every day during the season to service their traps. The lobster are collected from the traps, placed in boat holding tanks and delivered to market daily. Since the live harvest varies from month to month, lobster prices fluctuate with supply and demand.
Our lobsters are fresh and never sit in tanks for weeks at a time like at a supermarket. After a few days, a supermarket lobster will begin to lose weight as the claw meat shrinks. When cooked, the supermarket lobster won't taste as succulent as a fresh from the ocean lobster.
