Lobster Dinner For A Fraction Of The Restaurant Price

Love lobster and a healthy bank account?  When I was young (and financially irresponsible) I went out for lobster dinner once a week.  I wish I had that money back! This is how I enjoy it now.....

  • Find out when lobster is on sale ($5.99-$6.99 per pound is a great price in New England)
  • Ask the seafood manager to steam them for you (takes about 15-20 minutes)
  • While they are cooking, grab your sides...slaw, corn, potato, bread
  • Your corn and potato can be quickly microwaved while you set the table at home and melt your butter! For a fraction of the restaurant price you can enjoy a wonderful lobster dinner with very little effort.

I Love Lobster on the Cheap!!
