Your lobster will be cooked to order at midday then gently chilled in fresh water before being carefully packed and vacuum sealed to ensure that it arrives to you the next day fresh and delicious. If you are going to dress the lobster yourself, we suggest using the lobster picks so that you can get the delicious knuckle and claw meat out of the shell. We also have the claw crackers to make breaking open the claw shell easier.
If you would like your lobster fully prepared and ready to eat we can dress it for you. Ian will take the cooked lobster, remove the claws, cut the body half lengthways and remove the inedible bits. The claws are then cracked open and the knuckle and claw meat is placed on the lobster halves, you really don't want to leave the delicate knuckle meat in the shell, it is delicious and Ian is really good at teasing it all out. It is then carefully packed and vacuum sealed so it arrives to you the next day as fresh and tasty as possible.
Lobster meat is low in fat and carbohydrates and high in quality protein, making it not only delicious, but good for you too. The Canadian lobster grounds are tightly regulated and managed making it the most sustainable lobster fishery in the world, which is why we import these lovely lobsters, you can find out more here.
Your cooked lobster should be kept in the fridge and enjoyed within three days.
The sauces are a portion size, just 75g of per packet. You can choose between a hollandaise sauce - a rich, creamy, buttery sauce with a refreshing lemony tang or a mornay sauce which is a French classic, its distinctive flavour of cheese and white wine. The sauces are perfect poured on top of your dressed lobster and then placed under the grill to heat both the sauce and the lobster through. The sauce prevents the lobster meat from drying out and gives it a wonderful flavour. If you would like to order the sauces separately please visit our pantry to see all our sauces.
Please note that the above weights are approximate and are based on the weight of the lobster whilst live, as we have cooked the lobster for you, on arrival it will weigh less than stated above and if you would like your lobster dressed then it will weigh even less as we will have removed the meat from the claws and discarded the claw shell.
