Are tank lobsters any good?

iheartcooking | Feb 21, 201511:20 PM

I know they're not going to be as amazing as, you know, lobsters in Maine or anything along those lines, but at my local asian grocery store there are tanks of all kinds of live fish and crustaceans and I was thinking it would be nice to get a couple lobsters out of those tanks and cook them at home.

The unintentionally hilarious thread about killing lobsters got me wondering if I have it in me to do the deed.

I bought sushi-grade fish from this market and it was pretty good, but as for all the stuff in the tanks, yeah it's "fresh" but is it gross because they're living in such close quarters? Or is the ocean just as bad with its pollution and whatnot?

I'm totally ignorant about seafood. Are these worth a try?
