High Pressure Process (HPP)
Tail meat does not come any fresher, sweeter or easier! Tails are uncooked, and raw with no shell, all tail meat!).
Raw shucked Maine lobster tail meat is produced using a state-of-the-art processing technology called UHP. High pressure extracts the meat from the shell and leaves the tender texture and delicate flavor of the tail meat intact. Lobster tails are vacuum packed and cryogenically frozen in a CO2 freezing tunnel at -80C to -90C for optimal freshness.
Our hand shucked lobster tails are more convenient because we do the shucking for you. And since they are fresh frozen you can prepare them anytime.
Slow defrost tails overnight in the refrigerator before cooking. Cook before consuming. DO NOT overcook. Simply thaw tails and either steam, butter poach or try roasting them in the oven. Serve with lemon slices and fresh drawn butter.
Bring 2 inches of water to a boil in a large pot or deep skillet with a tight-fitting lid. Add a pinch of sea salt.
Place a steamer basket over water and add defrosted tails.
Cover and steam 5 to 6 minutes until meat is just opaque.
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
Place thawed lobster tails on a sheet pan or baking dish.
Drizzle with oil, butter or your favorite marinade.
Place in oven and cook for about 10 minutes.
In a saucepan, bring 2-3 tbs. of water to a simmer over medium heat.
Whisk in 1 tbs. butter when butter melts add another piece. Continuing adding butter pieces— 1 cup or two sticks total. (Do not let the butter come to a boil, or the butter will separate.)
Add defrosted tails. Poach for 3-4 minutes and turn tails in butter mixture and poach for another 3-4 minutes.
Our shucked lobster tails make a beautiful presentation. Use our tail meat for over-the-top lobster rolls, or slice into medallions to top a salad, pasta dish, or your signature lobster dish, like Lobster Fra Diavolo. Add a filet mignon or New York strip steaks for the perfect surf and turf!
Repeat customer. Love the Lobster 🦞 rolls and naked Lobster tails. Just had the Tiger Shrimp which prepared scampi style and made for killer birthday dinner.
Always Great Seafood!
Been purchasing from them for years! Always the best seafood around!
I just received my purchase, which arrived right on time and in perfect condition. It looked as though very little of the dry ice had melted. I will be cooking up a few of the tails this weekend. I know they'll be delicious 😋 🙂
