Lobster stew facts for kids
|Place of origin||Spain, United States|
|Region or state||Menorca, Maine|
There is a variety of Catalan lobster stews.
Perhaps the most famous is the Menorcan caldera de llagosta (Catalan). Lobster is added to a sofrito, onions, tomatoes, garlic and parsley and boiled, and is eaten with thin slices of bread. It is a signature dish of Menorca, and even the monarchy of Spain has been known to travel to Menorca to enjoy it.
This dish is only available during spring and summer, because the local lobsters are protected and can only be captured between March and August.
