It really doesn’t take much. Lobster, a little mayo, and a split top hot dog bun is all that you need to make a truly authentic lobster roll. According to Eater, Red Hook Lobster Pound in New York uses knuckle and claw meat from 1.5-ish pound lobsters, Country Kitchen frankfurt rolls griddled with butter, homemade…
My, my, my. Shake Shack, unquestionably the best tasting burger chain on the face of planet Earth for people with discernible taste and half working tongues, is upping the decadence in its latest burger by going surf and turf. That is, they’re adding a beautifully buttery layer of lobster to their already perfect…
Fisherman Bill Coppersmith plucked this very rare orange lobster yesterday from the Gulf of Maine, but amazingly, it’s not his rarest-ever catch. That honor goes to the white albino lobster he snagged in 1997. Still, the critter he dubbed “Captain Eli,” in honor of his grandson, is unique indeed.
Even if you don’t enjoy lobster (and I don’t, particularly), more than perhaps any other food it’s synonymous with a certain kind of luxury. But it wasn’t always that way. In fact, for a long time it was just the opposite.
Biologist Forrest Galante was diving for lobsters off the coast of Anacapa Island, California, when he found this 70-year-old 12-pound monster. Instead of grilling it right away with tons of butter and lemon, he decided to keep it to show it to his family. Days later, he released it back into the ocean.
No, the short film Caterwaul isn't a tale of bestiality, but it is one of a strange relationship between a lonely fisherman and the lobster he decides to take home one day. Even as the lobster longs for the sea and becomes increasingly un-lobster-like, the man can't bear to part from his crustacean companion.
That Surf and Turf now costs an arm and a leg thanks to lobster's recent resurgence in popularity. But, as David Foster Wallace's famous essay, Consider the Lobster illustrated, throughout Colonial-era America, the crustacean was considered among the least desirable foods one could put in their face—a garbage meat fit…
It looks like a lobster. It even moves like a lobster. But this is not a lobster.
The Lobster, the dystopian romance movie where single people risk being turned into wild animals, just got a lot more interesting. John C. Reilly joined the cast of this English-language film from Oscar-winning Greek director Yorgos Lanthimos.
Colin Farrell and Rachel Weisz have signed on to star in The Lobster, an "unconventional love story" set in a dystopian future where "finding a partner is a matter of life or death." So... does the government kill anyone who's not married by age 30? Update: There's another synopsis!
What are the United States' best regional foodstuffs? Its worst? These are the questions that bedevil the mind of man—but no longer! For here, we have ranked them. Rigorously scientific (not), ardently researched (nope), and scrupulously fair (not even a little bit): this is the Great American Menu!
Occasionally, lobsters turn up with malformed claws due to a genetic mutation—but even among those lobsters, Lola is an oddity. On one side, she has a perfectly normal claw, and on the other, five mini-claws.
Do not judge the Crabster by its lame name, which sounds more like the nickname of a frat guy from a terrible '80s movie than it does a badass ocean-roving robot. A portmanteau of "crab" and "lobster," two creatures after which it is modeled, the Crabster was designed by researchers in South Korea to help them do…
Sea hares are known for the colorful, sticky ink they let loose when knocked around by hungry predators (or mean humans). Scientists already knew a few ways this defense helped these squishy creatures escape the dinner plate. But new research reveals another purpose to the defensive ink, and it's unlike anything else…
A new study in the Journal of Experimental Biology revealed some equally terrible news for shellfish and Red Lobster enthusiasts alike: crabs experience pain.
Google has one of the most iconic logos of all time, in spite of itself. There's nothing charming about it except for its massive, comforting familiarity. But what if Google (and the rest) swapped in a luscious, retro look?
What's a lobster gotta do to avoid getting eaten these days? If you're a lobster living on the coast of Winter Harbor, Maine, the answer is: look like a lava lamp.
It wouldn't be a good idea to get into an arm wrestling match with Rocky, the largest recorded lobster ever caught in Maine. So watch out if you're planning on doing any swimming in New England this year.
Lobsters! Not only do they have delicious meat, their shells have use too! Researchers at the University of Maine have developed a biodegradable golf ball from lobster shells. It's cheaper than the typical biodegradable ball ($0.19 vs $1) and can be hit straight into the ocean without the environment weighing down on…
The lobster taser, which looks to me mostly like a lobster photocopier, is supposedly a more humane way of dispatching the delicious bottomfeeders than the normal "stab in the brain" or "boil alive" methods. Also, tasers.
