Summertime Lobster Salad and Seafood Giveaway

lobster 1

Summer just ain’t summer without lobster.

I think I should just move to Maine so that I can eat it everyday.

Nice n’ chewy and tender. No need for the butter on the side when you can add a drizzle of fresh lemon juice.

Did you know that if you simply just steam a lobster and serve it atop a bed of veggies n’ greens you can make a pretty darn amazing salad?

No need to run out for the butter…it’s better without it.

Well, I can’t eat butter so I don’t really know what it tastes like, but I assure you it’s healthier without the butter.

I love lobster but it never seems to fill me up. My belly’s always wanting a bit more in there, so I thought I’d pair it with a bunch of fresh summer veggies and salad.  Why not?

A lil’ fiber and a lil’ protein.

Nice combo, isn’t it?

It’s perfect for me. The perfect summer meal=Seafood + Veggies.  I could eat it every night, but then I’d be broke because fresh seafood is a tad on the expensive side, especially in Manhattan.

Now what’s better than a lobster salad sans the mayo, please. It’s gluten-free, dairy-free n’ healthy. My kinda meal.

It just wouldn’t be summer without it.

Get your fork ready, you’re gunna love this one.

    I’m sure my husband would want the scallops but I want to try the Ono as I’ve never had it. Though anything off their site would probably work.
    Thanks!

    I’m an East Coaster from the Atlantic provinces originally – so I’m expected to love seafood! And I do :)

    But, I’ve never had lobster! My parents used to eat it often – but I couldn’t get over its claws ;) I do love all sorts of fish though and eat it regularly.
