Staying away from red meats for now but today's delicacy was a nice broiled salmon steak in a delicious dill sauce.

unfortunately i'm not much for fish, shellfish is alright, but not crazy over it, the odd tuna sandwich maybe, but as far as real, fresh fish, Sole or Haddock, breaded and deep fried with tartar sauce is the only way i can eat it  :-\

yes, it is, and very cheap if you want to cook your own, otherwise the tourist trap restaurants charge about $30 for one lobster plus all you can eat salad bar and mussels, whereas you can buy live lobster directly from a fisherman's truck for about $6/pound  :)

As I've said before, Julie's father is from PEI, he brings in lobsters quite often and pays substantially less than the markets around here charge. Still want to go there myself and grab some fresh ones, I don't think anything compares  :)

season is delayed at least a week here (was supposed to open Monday i believe) because of all the ice in the water this year, another update is scheduled for Thursday, they'd really hate to miss out on Mother's Day, a lot of lobster is sold for that, first big "feed" of the year  ;D
with the processors paying low prices the last few years, some fishers sell them out of their trucks in mall, gas station, etc. parking lot's for $5 (canners) and $6 (markets) per pound, some sellers even have them cooked at that price, canners are smaller lobsters, usually around  pound or pound and a half, markets are the bigger ones like you get in restaurants.
i didn't know Julie's father was from PEI.

How is the shellfish on your rock annee? Based on the size of the continent I'm sure it varies, but still available nonetheless.

Pretty good here too in places. Tasmania,, is close by and so is King Island. Sydney is well known for seafood too.
