What does it mean when cooked lobster tails smell like ammonia
What does it mean when cooked lobster tails smell like ammonia. went to the store and bought 4 good size lobster tails, came home washed in water and then steamed. after cracking them open i noticed the meat looked kinda brownish, smelled it and it smelled like ammonia. to be on the safe side we did not eat them.7.62

Don't eat it.
If it smells like ammonia it's because it's not fresh.
It was probably sitting around too long prior to being refrigerated & then frozen during processing.
Strong ammonia smell is a natural way to tell that lobster meat is not fit to eat........ seriously!

Do not eat them, you will get sick...return to place of purchase.
The lobster was dead and was breaking down and the ammonia is a by product of the meat breaking down.
The human body does the same thing when you don't take in enough food.......the body starts eating the muscle and you give off a strong smell of ammonia."Jimal"

Yep.....ammonia= spoiled. Always err on the side of safety with any food. If you think it might be bad, it surely is. Your nose doesn't lie.

Beware buying cheap seafood at the supermarket, who knows where that shit comes from that they can sell lobster tails for 5 bucks. Definetly not california spinies.
I personally dont buy any seafood reg grocery stores, seafood market or costco.
Really wish I was closer to tommys shop.
