Another Prince Edward Island tradition, The Lobster Supper...I have to tell you. Tonight a group of about twelve of us got together for this fabulous experience.
Fresh PEI Lobster in the shell, Fresh PEI potato salad, fresh home made rolls with real butter and a variety of finger deserts. If you don't think that it is a special experience just read what Marialisa Calta of the Globe and Mail has to say. (Perhaps you might consider a visit to our Hidden Island Paradise just for The Lobster Supper experience)
SOURIS, PEI -- Sure, we've got spectacular scenery and untamed wilderness,
but with the country's burgeoning wine regions and
regional cuisines drawing international accolades,
Canada has a lot to offer the travelling gourmand
Every year, when my husband, two daughters and I make our annual trek to Prince Edward Island, I take the "seafood pledge" -- that no meat shall pass my lips for the duration of my stay in this seafood paradise. It's a pledge I keep happily and, with the exception of an occasional turkey sandwich or a burger, almost successfully. PEI is awash in mussels, oysters, clams, lobster and fish, including Atlantic salmon, char, haddock and cod.
Because we were once campers and now own a cabin on the island, we've done most of the cooking of grilled, fresh fish ourselves.
The island offers the ubiquitous battered-and-fried fish joints and a number of fine dining establishments, but for budget-minded travellers like us with kids in tow, the perfect compromise -- offering fresh seafood, family-friendly atmosphere and excellent prices -- is the PEI lobster supper.
