Slipper lobsters are not true lobsters. Their meat is softer in texture and only the tail can be used. They are found around the world and their names vary, e.g. Balmain bugs and Moreton Bay bugs are found in Australia. It can be used either green (raw) or pre-cooked. Green tails are perfect for grilling or shallow poaching, whilst cooked tails can be prepared similar to tiger prawns, e.g. in a cocktail or salad. Balmain bugs with asparagus is a typical dish.
