    Best to Buy

    Look for live and frisky lobsters (their tails should curl up or flap when picked up) that smell fresh, with no hint of ammonia.

    Prep & Store

    Refrigerate live lobsters wrapped in wet newspaper on a bed of ice for no more than a few hours. Cook and eat the same day you buy it. Discard any lobster that dies before you cook it.

    Freshly cooked lobster has a bright red shell. Any exposed meat should be white and moist, not dry or yellow.

    Nutrition Notes

    Lobster is a good source of potassium, selenium, zinc, and vitamin B12.
