- Lobster from Zeeland has a unique, softly sweet flavour.
- Raw, it has a deep blue colour.
- Try Eastern Scheldt lobster.
‘Eastern Scheldt’ lobster is unique
The Eastern Scheldt is a national park boasting a unique underwater world in which the Eastern Scheldt lobster or Oosterscheldekreeft thrives. The stone dykes, salt water and gentle winters make for perfect breeding conditions for this type of lobster. The Eastern Scheldt is a fairly isolated body of water, so the lobsters’ flavour is unique, softer and sweeter than that of other European lobster. And did you know the Eastern Scheldt lobster is deep blue when uncooked?
Lobster season starts on the last Thursday in March and ends on 15 July.
