I had 2 live Spiny lobsters – Bamboo & Spider, freshly delivered to my place for dinner by Tai Kong Seafood & I’m gonna show you how you can prepare 3 seafood dishes with these lobsters.

What is the nutritional value of lobster meat?
Not only is lobster meat lower in fat, calories & cholesterol than beef or even the leanest chicken, it’s also rich in Omega-3 fatty acids, which are helpful in the prevention of heart disease & hardening of the arteries.

Contrary to popular belief, it’s not particularly difficult to cook a lobster. The only thing that may put you off is the fact that lobsters must be cooked fresh, which means buying it live & taking it home with you or alternatively, have it delivered to your home.

Of course, you can avoid the chore by buying cooked & chilled lobster meat or even frozen lobster tails, but the meat is not as fresh & the texture is compromised. However, if you want to rustle up something spectacular in order to impress your dinner guests, presenting a whole cooked lobster, would certainly be an excellent & innovative choice. Today, I’m using Spiny lobsters for:

Besides lobsters, I’ll also be using Celery for all the 3 courses. Celery has a rich source of vitamin C & it’s a remedy to lower blood pressure & aids in the fight against cancer.

There are many different ways to receive the health benefits of celery. Eating celery in its natural raw form is one way. It’s a good idea to add celery to dinner dishes on a regular basis especially soups, stews & salads. In my 3 recipes, celery is used in Bloody Mary as a garnish as well as eaten raw. I’ve used celery to make the bisque stock & as a flavouring agent for steaming the lobster.

Recipe: Bloody Mary Lobster Cocktail
1 tsp of diced lobster meat (cooked)
50ml tomato juice
½ tsp vodka
½ lime/lemon juice
Dash of Tabasco sauce
Dash of Worcestershire sauce
Celery sticks for garnish

  1. Gently moisten the rim of the cocktail glasses with the lime/lemon wedge & press into a saucer of salt.
  2. Combine all ingredients & mix well.
  3. Pour into glass & add diced lobster meat. Garnish with celery & serve chilled.
