A summer lunch that feels like a splurge – The Denver Post

A pandemic has many downsides. And the lobster industry is among the many sectors it’s taken a toll on.

If you’re in the business of selling lobster, you currently have a lot of lobster available and a dearth of wholesale customers, not the ideal situation.

But there can be some bright spots, depending on how you look at it. If you’re a home cook, you’ll be glad to know that lobsters are cheaper than ever — less than $6 a pound at many supermarkets. So, in theory, at these prices, you could be having lobster once or twice a week, not just for special occasions. Look at it this way: The more lobster we eat, the more we support the beleaguered lobster industry.
