You know what they say about an apple a day... but what about lobster?
Hi, I’m Chef Tor Sporré, Westport-based but not LTD (limited). Europe, California, Florida are also my domains and I’ve stolen from their cuisines. (Shhhh! Don’t tell anyone!)
How about a clam or an oyster a day, a mussel a day, or even a lobster? All these fruits of the sea are fine sources of protein for us humans. With fall and winter come cooler cleaner waters which bodes for delicious bounties of fresh shellfish, full of good things like Omega-3s, calcium, magnesium, iron, phosphorus, and potassium, to name a few. (See more nutritional table and charts at http://www.penncoveshellfish.com/Nutrition/nutrition.html.)
But what about high cholesterol? According to the Yale-New Haven Nutrition Advisor: ‘Most shellfish is naturally low in total fat and saturated fat, and only moderate in cholesterol content. That means it can still fit into a heart healthy diet.’
I think it’s time we think of this food source for the family dinner as well as for entertaining events. It’s so easy to prepare and makes for Grade-A fitness, diet, or shape-up cuisine (pick one or all of the above).
Hot, cold, or leftover, you can’t go wrong with our seafood friends!
Follow me as I explore the home of what I consider to be the home of the best lobster on earth - MAINE - to show you just how healthy, affordable, and easy to prepare lobster really is!
I’ll be sharing nutrition facts, recipes, and preparation techniques. I hope to dispel myths about Lobster as a luxury food to be eaten at fancy restaurants on special occasions. Lobster is more affordable than you think and can be served for breakfast, lunch, and dinner! Let me show you can easily have champagne meals on a beer budget!
