Barbara's Lobster Cakes

May 13, 2013

Fishing is one of three primary industries on Prince Edward Island and, arguably, the most famous of all seafood caught on the Island is lobster. Lobster is a very versatile seafood that can be eaten on its own or incorporated into any number of recipes. To commemorate the start of this year's spring fishery on the Island, I am sharing my recipe for Lobster Cakes. Click here to read more about lobster fishing on Prince Edward Island.
