Cooked Canadian Lobsters

Recently while shopping at Asda, I noticed a freezer full of Canadian lobsters. These are about a pound in weight each and were on sale at £5.00 each. Not wanting to pass up on such a great deal, I bought two of these home and planned on serving them on a plate of home-made coleslaw.

The lobsters were ready cooked and frozen for transport over to England. They were taken out to defrost on the day they were to be served.

The home-made coleslaw comprised of finely sliced carrots and white cabbage, and mixed with mayonnaise. The trick to get the flavour into the vegetables, is to use a vacuum-seal container, which opens up the pores in the vegetables for the flavour of the mayonnaise to get in, and ‘cook’ the vegetables.

Suffice to say that the combination was very tasty. The meat from the lobster claws were served to my daughters. For me, it should be the lobster rings which should be served with the coleslaw. At that price, the Canadian lobsters were definitely good value indeed.
