What Does Lobster Taste Like? Lobster tastes like a combination of shrimp, crabs, and clams.
Lobster is a great seafood dish that has been highly sought after for their taste since the early 1800s. In 1906, people spoke out against this dish because they felt it was unfair to use lobsters as resources for food when they played an important role in enticing bait for fisherman with their luminescent properties. | Ultimately, it is said that lobster tastes a little salty and chewy – similar to salmon or crustaceans. It’s bitter but tasty depending on how it’s cooked
