this was a shot my husband captured (credit where credit is due) of a lobster trap on Little Cranberry Island at the Isleford Dock, off the coast of Mount Desert Island, Maine

Summer in Maine…Grilled Lobster

Boil for 5 minutes, then submerge in ice to stop the cooking. Crack the shell in various spots, drizzle with melted butter, cook face down on a medium grill for 8 minutes; flip them over, continue to baste with butter another 4-5 minutes (making sure to get some char on the shell) and enjoy! You’ll be amazed at what it does to the texture. TENDER!

What to do with leftover Maine lobster? make #foodporn!

Ok typically there isn’t such a thing as leftover lobster. But when you buy 6 of them for 2 people, there is leftover lobster. But it’s intentional. Grilled lobster for dinner, lobster rolls the next day for lunch and then lobster dip with crusty bread and wine in the late afternoon.This was about  8 oz of fresh lobster meat (ours was grilled), 3 oz of softened cream cheese, 1/2 cup of mayonnaise, 1/2 cup of grated Parmesan,1 very small garlic clove finely chopped and a dash of Tobasco. Mix well and bake until bubbly and browned on top about 15 minutes on 375. Serve with warmed bread.

THAT is what you do with leftover lobster!
