lobster night!

fldhkybnva Apr 28, 2012 10:50 AM

I made the 45 minute trip to Wegman's today to pick up lobster for dinner and went for 2-2.5 lb lobsters. Any estimates as to how much actual lobster meat this will yield?

Thanks in advance.

    1.5 lb. Lobster is supposed to yield 1 1/3 cup of meat. I usually buy a 1.5-2 pound per person.

      Thanks. There is a calorie counter in the bunch so I imagine that a good estimate is 300 calories/2 lbs?
