Living in Prince Edward Island on Canada’s east coast offers access to an abundance of fine seafood, not the least of which is lobster. The lobster fishery is a large economic driver for the province.

Having access to high quality locally-fished lobster is a real perk for a recipe developer like me! I have created and published a number of recipes that use lobster as the primary ingredient. This posting is a compilation of those fabulous lobster recipes.

For each recipe, I have provided a brief description of the dish and indicated how much cooked lobster meat is required, the number of servings the recipe can be expected to generate, serving suggestions and, where applicable, if the dish freezes well for later enjoyment. I have also included the hotlink that will take you to each recipe on my website.

As I develop and publish more recipes using lobster, I will add them to this compendium repository so, in that sense, this will be an evergreen post. So, the next time you are searching for a recipe that calls for lobster, you can either use the Recipe Index or Search Box on my website’s home page or you can refer to this posting that will have links to the lobster recipes I have published.
