Canadian cold water lobster, also known as rock shell lobster, is a delicacy that is highly prized for its sweet, succulent meat. These lobsters are native to the cold waters of the Atlantic Ocean, specifically on the eastern coast of Canada.
Cold-water lobsters are known for their firm, white meat, which is leaner and more delicate in flavour compared to warm-water lobsters. They have a distinctive, clawed appearance, with a hard, rocky shell that gives them their name. The tail meat is the most prized part of the lobster and is often used in lobster rolls, lobster bisque, and other classic lobster dishes.
Canadian cold-water lobster tails are typically sold frozen and are a convenient and flavorful way to enjoy this delicacy. They can be thawed and cooked using various methods such as boiling, grilling, or baking. To prepare a cold water lobster tail, it is first necessary to split the tail down the middle using a sharp knife or kitchen scissors. The meat can then be removed from the shell and cooked according to the desired recipe.
