The Redondo Beach Lobster Festival is going on this weekend at the Seaside Lagoon, 200 Portofino Way in Redondo Beach. “Shell yourself silly.” Since lobster does not abound here in Southern California, fresh Main lobsters are flown from the Altantic to the Pacific. There will be live performances. Highlights for Sunday, September 20th, include a Beatles tribute band, Paperback Writer. If you can’t make it but feel like eating something-lobster, here my lobster salad recipe GOLD STANDARD OF THIN, which will be published in a few months by Sugar and Spice Press. Most shellfish is naturally low in total fat and saturated fat, and only moderate in cholesterol content. That means it can still fit into a heart healthy diet. So, don’t give up on it. Just limit the quantity.
