Lobster

Canada's waters, particularly those off the Atlantic coast, are teeming with one of the world's most sought-after delicacies: the Canadian lobster. With its vibrant red shell when cooked and meaty claws, this crustacean is synonymous with seafood for many people.

The taste of Canadian lobster is unparalleled—succulent, sweet, and slightly briny. Its tender meat is a favourite in dishes ranging from the classic lobster roll to luxurious lobster bisques. Whether steamed, grilled, baked—or even canned—it's a treat that elevates your culinary experience.
