One of the most iconic and quintessential culinary traditions of the New England region of the United States is its love of lobster. From being considered a low-class food many years ago to reaching the status as one of the sea’s most delicious treats, lobster has a special place in the hearts of many. If you’re heading to New England, these are three of the best and most popular ways to try this treat.

Lobster Roll

Lobster rolls are perhaps New England’s most famous sandwich. It combines lobster meat with butter or mayonnaise, lemon juice, and is lightly seasoned depending on the area in which you eat it. This refreshing sandwich is perfect for a hot summer day.

Steamed Lobster

Perhaps the most iconic way to prepare lobster in New England is by steaming it and then using special tools to open its shell and get all the delicious pieces of meat out of the tail, knuckles, and claws. Squeeze a lemon on top of the meat, grab plenty of napkins, and enjoy!

Grilled Lobster

Grilling lobster might not be the way that you think about preparing it, but you’d be surprised at just how delicious it is. Lobsters are generally split open and then prepared on a grill before being served with a slice of lemon and a little bit of butter.
