Lobsters are high in protein and are great if you are on a strict diet because of the essential omega3 acids that you acquire from them. Studies actually show that lobster meat is indeed a good substitute for chicken meat and other basic meat staples. This omega3 that you get from this crustacean is also perfect for lowering the risk of strokes and other heart related problems. One good way of preparing a lobster is by steaming it; there are a lot of lobster recipes that make use of steaming. All you will need is an air tight and sturdy steamer and voila! You are good to go. One thing that you have to remember, though, is to cook your lobsters by batch in order for you to steam them properly. Compared to boiling, steaming needs only a fair amount of water, but would most likely take you a bit longer. Nonetheless, a steamed lobster will definitely be more juicier, tastier and by far a lot healthier for you to eat. Here is one of the many yummy lobster recipes that you can try:
