Blue Lobsters

Posted by mamabok | Amusing/Bizarre,Canadian,Seafood,Western | Tuesday 10 February 2009 1:06 pm




I’m sure all of you have seen lobsters before.. but have you seen a blue lobsters..??  in the recent years.. here in Nova Scotia.. we’ve found some blue lobsters.. and why are they blue..??  they are born this way.. i heard.. it’s is some kind of pigmentation in the skin .. therefore it is this color.  Normal and majority of the lobsters caught in this fishing village are orangy in color.. and lobsters go cheap enough.. if you know where to get them.  At $5 a pop.. you can’t go wrong.

With the recent economy.. the lobster fishermen were kind badly hit earlier this year.. and they went on the streets and sold their lobsters for $5 a piece.. instead of selling it to a wholesaler for $3.50/pound.  Their way of protesting..  it seems.  Having said that.. we all know that the fishermen are never happy .. even if the prices were good.. or the catch were good that year.  Every year.. they complained about something.

As for myself.. i’m just into the lobster for making lobster bisque.  Yes.. little soup.. but lots of lobsters. What about you ..???  what do you do with your lobsters..?? how do you like it..?? i also like lobster salad .. like those bad home in Asia.  And a girlfriend just offered me some New York Yankees tickets in exchange for some lobsters.

    They are blue because they are cold. Put them in warm water (not hot) to change their colour. If you leave them in the sun for a long period, it will tan like a normal lobster.
