One pound of lobster meat provides a day’s worth of protein…plus, it’s a good source of key vitamins and minerals, like B12, copper and selenium.
But don’t worry about the cholesterol: a study in the Journal of the American Dietetic Association found no link between the dietary cholesterol in shellfish, and heart disease risk.
If you’re cooking: Drop a live 1-pound lobster into a large pot of boiling salted water, and cover the pot. Cook about 10 minutes, until the shell is a deep rusty red…And add 2 minutes for every additional one-quarter pound.
But ditch the butter. Lobster meat is rich enough all by itself. So, top each forkful with a squeeze of lemon instead.
