Think of the most expensive item on a fine dining menu, and chances are your mind goes immediately to lobster. This red-shelled crustacean is highly sought after for chefs and food lovers alike. Lobster is prized in part because it is so difficult to produce and export. They don’t do well in farming conditions, so they must be wild caught, and the resulting catch is fresh and briney. Their tender meat mixes well with pasta dishes, like lobster scampi, but the classic way to eat lobster is whole with plenty of butter on the side!
