Lobster

Lobsters form a large family of marine crustaceans that gets $1.8 billion for the seafood industry every year. Lobsters live on rocky, sandy, or mud-covered bottoms from the seashores to the edge of the continental shelf. They generally live alone in crevices or in burrows under rocks. The most widespread preparation of lobster is to drop the creature into a pot of boiling water which kills it very quickly. The flesh is then served with butter, to add subtle flavor to the meat.

  1. I have had the chance to pick Matsutake mushrooms, they are incredible! They add a flavor that I can only describe as the essence of a forest.

  2. Woow!! Very nice pics!! I love that :D I had the chance to taste Kobe beef, it’s really delicious! Nice post ;)

    • Oysters are incredibly inexpensive. Most fish markets or supermarkets with a quality seafood section sell their oysters at $12 for a dozen (that’s a dollar an oyster). Lobster is also inexpensive, and usually a small-mid sized lobster can vary from $9-$25. It all depends where you shop at, which means you may have to pass on the local Stop&Shop and drive a bit more to a decent fish market or gourme super market.
      Kobe Beef these days can be found at a considerably cheap price in some restaurants, when in the form of burgers or a serloin instead of a cut like porterhouse or filet minion. I payed about $18 for a Kobe Burger, and $22 for Kobe Serloin.
      Your picture is a picture of salmon roe, which is incredibly cheap for the value of caviar. A pound of Salmon Roe literally only costs $50, so you can assume how cheap a smaller box of case of it will be.
      Good deals can be found on Caviar Dealer websites these days. One website that I shop from frequently has a listed 5kg of Real Beluga Caviar from Russia priced at $65, and for 1kg it’s about $35, all of which was incredibly fresh and was great quantities for appetizers.

      I have little insight on the Matsutukate Mushrooms, though I can say that Truffles are the most expensive Mushroom and are of a higher caliber than the Mushrooms you listed. 1 Truffle can cost around $150 if it is very fresh and you buy it in person.
