Live Native Lobster
Stunning blue Native Lobsters caught in lobster pots from the East coast by some of our favourite lobstermen.
By choosing to have you lobster live you will get to discover the beautiful blue shells that range from lilac to the deepest blue before they turn red during cooking. These really are beautiful creatures, but also absolutely delicious, sweet, juicy and tender.
On arrival, the lobster will be cold and sleepy please keep in the box with the ice packs and place in your fridge and cook on the day of arrival. If the box is too large, place in another container with dry paper in the bottom and damp paper on top of the Lobster and keep cold. Do not place in water. Before cooking place the lobster in the freezer for 20 minutes or using the cross on the top of the head for a guide quickly put a strong knife through the centre of cross bringing it down through the head before cooking.
Small (400g - 500g)
Would feed one person for a small main or would be a starter for two people. Cooking time for this size lobster will be about 8 mins on a rolling boil.
Medium (600g - 800g)
Would be a good main for one person. Cooking time for this size lobster would be about 12 minutes on a rolling boil.
Large (900g - 1.1kg)
Would be a main for two people. Cooking time for this size lobster would be about 15 minutes on a rolling boil.
Please note that the weights are approximate and if you are cooking more than one lobster at a time you will need to increase your cooking time. Whilst every effort is made to ensure your lobster arrives live and kicking, we can not guarantee that it will.
