In a small bowl, prepare pico de gallo by combining tomato, onion, minced jalapeno, 2 tbsp cilantro, juice of 1 lime and ¼ tsp salt. Set aside.

In a medium bowl, mix together coleslaw, 2 tbsp cilantro and green onions. Set aside.

Assemble each taco by layering 1/8th of the lobster, coleslaw mix, pico de gallo, feta, cilantro and jalapeno and drizzle crema on top.


Do You Know Lobster?

Once inside a trap lobsters can never get out.

False – Lobsters Often Escape

Lobsters will often get out of traps - that is part of the design. Traps are built to allow undersize lobster to exit easily. Plus an escape hatch is made of biodegradable twine in case the trap is lost at sea. Adult lobsters will also escape traps at times; it is just more difficult.
