With over 49 species of lobster worldwide, lobsters from Maine offer rich, delicate, and decadently sweet flavors sure to excite your taste buds. Maine lobsters are highly coveted due to their sweet, tender meat. Maine lobster is the tastiest in the USA because it offers a less salty taste when compared to lobsters harvested in warmer waters. Water temperatures play a huge role in how salty a lobster might taste. Lobsters from warmer waters are much saltier than those from colder waters.
Maine lobster is sure to be a showstopper at your next dinner party.
Throw it together with some melted butter and simple sides like coleslaw or corn on the cob and you’ll have yourself a delicious meal that will keep your friends and family talking for days to come.

You won’t find lobster that has the quality and flavor as those from ShopLobster.
But what goes into making them so delicious?
Male or Female?
Lobsters from Maine can be male or female. Both are edible, and survey says that one isn’t tastier than the other. Both are equally delicious!
A female lobster will have feathering on her first pair of walking legs, whereas males are hard and bony. The meat from a female will also have a slightly pinkish hue once cooked.
Again, male or female, it doesn’t matter. If they’re from Maine, you’re guaranteed to be in for a mouthwatering treat.
The bigger the better?
When it comes to lobsters from Maine the size you choose comes down to personal preference. While there are legal guidelines that tell you how big or small lobsters can be, when talking about what size lobster tastes better, they’re both rich and sweet. Most restaurants will serve “quarter” lobsters which are about 1lb to 1 ¼ lbs (the smallest lobster you can buy).
Some say “the bigger the better,” but with Maine lobsters, that may not be true.
Many will say that the smaller sized lobsters have meat that is much sweeter than the larger selections. Those same individuals may also say the meat from larger lobsters is much tougher.
However, many still prefer “jumbo” lobsters which are primarily 2+ pounds due to the amount of meat you can get from their tails and claws.
Delicious, but how nutritious are they?
Lobsters from Maine not only taste delicious, they are jam packed with vitamins such as calcium, B12, selenium, phosphorus, and more! They are also a great source of protein offering about 28 grams per 6 ounce serving.
Maine lobsters are also low and fat and high in omega-3 fatty acids; all good heart-healthy things!
