(TRAVPR.COM) SINGAPORE - February 27th, 2013 - SINGAPORE: Crustacean lovers’ rejoice! From 18 February to 15 March, you can enjoy “LIVE” blue lobsters prepared in many enticing ways at Pontini.
Blue lobster, otherwise known as Homarus Vulgaris is one of the largest of the clawed crustaceans. It is very unqiue and is found in cold waters around the Eastern Atlantic Ocean, North West Coast of the Black Sea and most of the Mediterranean Sea in Sardinia and Sicily.
Food and Beverage Director, Mr Abu Nashir says, “Blue lobsters are known to be nutritious, low in fat and are high in good cholesterol. They are also very unique and are considered a delicacy. Blue lobsters are also commonly used in Italian cuisine and taste best when they are poached or grilled. They complement risotto and pasta dishes and are usually accompanied with fresh tomatoes, capers and olives.”
Blue lobsters are also popular as the flesh is sweet, tasty and juicy and have also been regarded as aphrodisiacs.
