Lobster left at room temp... Is it safe?b

I have some lobster that was steamed last night, but didn't get refrigerated until this morning... Is it safe to eat?

  1. I wouldn't. Fish left out overnight sounds like a really, really bad idea.

    1. probably not. certainly not worth the risk. of course, you may assume the risk but don't serve it to anyone else ;-)

        1. Um. No. Even if it's still safe, it will be quite a bit less tasty than it should be. Fish deteriorates rapidly in the fridge (like 2 days after cooked?). It deteriorates even faster at room temperature.
