Nova Scotia Lobster Recipes You Have to Make


When you live on the ocean like we do, lobster is more than seafood; it’s part of life. The simple pleasure of fresh lobster with lemon and drawn butter is hard to beat, but we thought we’d pull together a few other amazing ways to enjoy lobster. These recipes are sure to please. They are perfect for Father’s Day or…any other day you’ve got the craving.


Lobster Eggs Benedict

Eggs Benedict is a breakfast and brunch staple. Add lobster and you elevate the morning. We love this Lobster Eggs Benedict recipe for weekend brunch. It’s also a perfect way to start Dad’s morning on Father’s Day. Pair it with a great cup of coffee from local roasters like Full Steam or Anchored and the day just got even better.


Lobster Spring Rolls

We love fusion cooking. And Chef Bryan Corkery from Oceanstone Seaside Resort nailed it with these Asian inspired Lobster Spring Rolls. You get the crisp flavours of fresh vegetables and the decadence of lobster topped off with a curry and coconut milk dipping sauce.  So unique.


Creamed Lobster

This is a traditional dish found throughout the Yarmouth Acadian Region in Southwest Nova Scotia. It’s decadent and simple. In fact, you only need 4 ingredients to rock this dish. Thanks to the Kilted Chef, Alain Bossé, for sharing this recipe.


Spicy Lobster Cakes

Fish cakes…yum. Spicy Lobster Cakes…super yum. We love a bunch of things about this recipe from Rub that Rubs. It’s not hard to make – skill and time wise, it’s got a little kick from the Piri Piri spice blend and serving it with Fox Hill yogurt infused with tarragon brings even more local to the party.


Lobster Fettuccini with Fresh Herbs & Roasted Tomatoes

Lobster and pasta are amazing together. So, for seafood and pasta fans, we present Lobster Fettuccini with Fresh Herbs and Roasted Tomatoes. Roasting tomatoes brings out their sweet juiciness and the mixture of herbs bring a summer freshness. This dish is full of flavours, but they don’t overpower the lobster. So, we give it a big pasta loving thumbs up.


Lobster Caesar

The Caesar is our national drink. And lobster is our local treasure. We figured it was only fitting to share a recipe that includes both. Not much more needs to be said about the Lobster Caesar except, “drink your lobster!” Thanks to Saltscapes for giving us one more reason to love cocktail hour.


Summer and lobster is one of the best pairings we can think of. Whether you go traditional or you push the envelope and try some new recipes, you can’t go wrong.
