Nova Scotia Lobster Roll

Lobster… Red… Delicious… Exotic… Lobster…! The most coveted food for any tourist or visitor to the Maritime provinces of Canada, lobster. These delicious creatures, are bottom feeders in the ocean. They crawl and walk the ocean floor in search for food until a tempting piece of fish inside a cage beckons them to come, stay… and become a catch for the Lobster Fisherman.

Living in Nova Scotia, Capt’n Kenny has had the pleasure to meet many fishermen, who have repeatedly invited him to be on their boat. Recently, the Capt’n had the honor to be on the Seawinds, invited by his Capt’n, Tony Gaudet from HJanvrin’s Island here in Nova Scotia. That adventure will soon be released under a new series that we are calling “From the Sea floor to your table”, but for now, Capt’n Kenny is showing in this new video, how easy it is to cook a Lobster and make a Lobster roll. Enjoy!

We have to thank Tony Gaudet and the crew of the Seawinds for the delicious Lobster used to prepare our dish. We also thank Tabasco and Jost Wines for providing us with the best compliments to our Lobster Roll.
