Description

Lobster has been the most prized shellfish for centuries and rightly so – not only is the sweet and intensely flavoured flesh without comparison, but they’re also a source of large doses of protein, vitamin B12 and copper.

The European lobster has a blue-black shell that turns red when cooked, leading to its reputation as the “cardinal of the seas”. The bulk of the luxurious meat is contained within the first pair of claws and the abdomen or tail, the latter meat being often cut into medallions.

Dishes worth trying include lobster thermidor, lobster ravioli and lobster with linguine.

Our creel-caught lobsters are sold live and should be cooked as soon after delivery as possible. Stun them by putting them in a bag in the freezer (at least -10˚C) for two hours, then plunge them into a pan of boiling water.

How We Package Your Fish and Seafood

1. We vacuum pack fish portions in pairs and whole fish individually. We vacuum pack scallops in quantities of 500g. Oysters and lobsters are placed in a box. 
2. Each portion is then clearly labelled with the species, who packed it, the date it was packed and a fresh use-by date.
3. We add frozen chill packs, which contain non-toxic gel, to a polystyrene box.
4. We pack your order so the chill packs distribute the cold evenly throughout your fish and seafood, ensuring maximum freshness.
5. We seal the box with packing tape and hand it to our courier, who will deliver it to you within 24 hours.
