The food Maine is known for includes lobster, or course. (Steamed lobster and lobster rolls.)
But do you know the other foods that this gorgeous state is known for?
We spill the beans after visiting and eating our way through the state as we road-tripped along the coast!
Haddock was everywhere in Maine. If there was a lobster roll on a menu, odds were they were a haddock option too.
This food Maine is known for is a flaky, white fish. It's very similar to cod, if you have had that fish on a sandwich or fried, as a component of fish and chips.
We had several bowls of warm chowder soups in Maine.
We were there in June, but it got cold and windy on the water during summer. There were even some chilly coastal nights on land.
Soup was the perfect comfort food for us!
Lobsters grow by molting their shells, as they grow into a new shell they make. Softshell lobsters are the lobsters that are between shells.
They're the same type of Maine lobster as hard shells, but they're usually less money.
These lobsters are able to survive out of the water for just less than double the time of soft shell lobsters, which ends up being approximately 48 hours.
The meat of hardshell lobsters fills their shells because they have fully grown into them.
