Summertime Lobster Salad and Seafood Giveaway

by Amie on July 29, 2011

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.

Mmm… fresh seafood is one of life’s pleasures.

I would love to try Anderson’s ahi tuna and the halibut. And the caviar. And the smoked salmon – really, I want to try everything they have.

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.
