Lidl special offer - Lobster

Good Friday and Easter Saturday only - lobster - 5.99 each - buy one get one free   They are also doing British Leg of Lamb for 6.99kg which is also bit of a bargain if you buy meat.

Have to say - I've bought Lidl frozen lobsters before and was not at all impressed - no flavour and what little meat there was, was very watery.  Sorry

Hey - no problem.  Not had frozen lobster before full stop so I don't know what they are like but these seemed a good price.  I didn't really expect them to be thermodore material but I did wonder if they might do for the rick stein masala lobster recipe and things like that?
MrsWW

They'd probably do where the lobster isn't the main flavour.  Have to say though, I won't be spending my money on Lidl lobster again.  I was so disappointed I didn't even keep the shell for a shellfish stock.

Agree with Mrs WW, Aldi/Lidl lobster is about the only thing either of them sell I wouldn't have again.

Good job I can't get there this weekend then

Anyone else see the irony in a post about lobster being in the 'Making Ends Meet' section?

I did wonder
debbie

well, at 3 each it did seem cheap even if just for soup etc

Believe me--I'm tempted--and I may give them a go thanks for the heads up
