How to Cook Lobster
Lobster can be cooked in a number of ways, including steamed or boiled. It is also possible to grill lobster! Steaming is preferred by our chef because it retains the natural taste and tenderness of the lobster. Cooking time varies depending on the size of the lobster.

Lobster prices may vary depending on the season and availability, and especially global demand since it is exported all over the world. In Quebec, the fishermen's association negotiates a price with buyers (transformers, distributors, etc.) at the beginning of the season. Lobster is generally less expensive in season (May-June) and more expensive for the rest of the year.
Fishermen, like everyone else, are facing increases in the cost of gasoline, bait, and labor. According to experts, the lobster price in 2022 should be a little higher than last year, without however knowing a dazzling increase as we saw on snow crab at the start of the season. The lobster price should stabilize after the opening of more fishing areas in the Îles-de-la-Madeleine and on the north shore in mid-May.
Did you know that the majority (around 75%) of the lobster caught in Quebec is consumed by the local market?
