How to pick the right Maine Lobster
Here are some tips to help you choose the right size and quantity of lobsters.
If you’re serving “Surf & Turf,” a 1.25-pound lobster is a good size. For recipes that call for lobster meat, on average you can expect 20% meat to shell weight. So, a pound-and-a-quarter lobster will yield about 4-ounces.
If picking lobster for lobster rolls, stew or other recipes that use lobster meat, consider buying the meat by the pound already cooked. The price per pound is higher, but the value of pure lobster meat is worth it.
