aphrodisiacs and culinary seduction – lobster

0 29
Lobster has always been associated as a luxury food and with its charmed recognition as an aphrodisiac, its no wonder this succulent crustacean is a top choice for many a romantic meal for two. Lobster lovin’ couples delight in the sensual affair of sharing lobster meat dipped in drawn butter. Eaten with a mini fork or one’s fingers the experience can be very sexy.

Thumbnail image for couple_laughing_2.jpgThe science behind this aphrodisiac lies in that fact that it is packed with nutrients such as B-12, sulphur, calcium, iron, and zinc, some of which is believed to enhance ones libido and sexual desire.  

Some of my favorite lobster recipes you can find on Seduction Meals: Lobster in Chardonnay Sauce, Butter Poached Maine Lobster with Vanilla Crepes, Lobster and Corn Chowder, Crab Ravioli in Saffron Sauce topped with Lobster, and Corn and Chipotle Pancakes with Grilled Lobster.
