We were just going to have a steak dinner (carne asada) for Hugo's son's graduation party tonight but while I was down at the local store a kid came in with 3 lobsters in a bag trying to sell them to the store owner. The owner suggested I buy them and they did smell fresh out of the sea. A little over 3 kilos or 6.6 lbs for 150 pesos or about 13 dollars.
These are spiny lobsters or langostinos and don't have big claws like northern lobsters. In one foto you see a bunch of eggs ... but I have no idea if catching females or females with eggs is illegal. No idea if there is a size limit either. One is pretty small. Anyway, they are all in a big pot right now at Hugo's house with his wife doing the cooking (garlic and butter). Pacific coast of Mexico living

I just wanted to add that lobsters are usually langostas and langostinos more often shrimp or river prawns
