    …or in garlic butter, like escargot!

    Why isn’t seafood edible unless it’s smothered in something to change its flavor?

    The first guy to eat this musta been REALLY hungry…

    In the old days lobster was not desirable. It was considered a peasant food. But, I guess, the invention of melted garlic-butter it became the gourmet meal that it is.

    So a lobster is…

    Any food that has to be dipped in garlic butter to be palatable is not worth eating. Try lobster without dipping it. Nasty!

    Give me a good rib-eye steak any time! At least cows eat grass. Lobsters eat all kinds of garbage off the ocean floor.

    I’ve often thought the same about raw oysters.

    We used to see our cows eat occasional bugs, and sometimes a mouse caught up in the baled hay. Think about that with your next steak.

    Extra protein. Be happy.

    The only reason for the butter is that lobster tends to be dry. Try surf and turf sometime, and dip the steak in the butter. Or, for a real treat, a little steak with a little lobster, both dipped in the butter. Yummo!

    Yup – I can’t imagine walking along, seeing what looks like a huge bug and thinking ‘Hey – I’ll bet that would taste great with melted butter’ ;-)

    Lobster may not taste that good if it’s not dipped in melted butter. Prisoners on the east coast, hundreds of years ago rioted when they had to eat lobster too many times.

    ^ Aha! The above comments confirm what I’ve said.

    Personally, I think most (if not all) seafood is great “as is” as long as it is cooked — some needs some salt or pepper.
