Commonly referred to as the Florida spiny lobster, the Caribbean spiny lobster inhabits tropical and subtropical waters of the Atlantic Ocean, Caribbean Sea, and Gulf of Mexico. Spiny lobsters get their name from the forward-pointing spines that cover their bodies to help protect them from predators. They vary in color from almost white to dark red-orange. The spiny lobster is a highly sought delicacy and brings recreational “hunters” from all over the country and beyond to seek this intriguing species. The tail of the spiny lobster offers succulence and sweetness while maintaining a clean flavor and unmistakable texture. It adapts to a multitude of cooking methods and recipes. From steam, court-bullion, and butter poaching to the open flames of the grill, the spiny lobster meets each technique with the same remarkable end… DELICIOUSNESS.
