How to Choose Lobster Claws

When choosing the perfect lobster claws for your culinary masterpiece, keep these tips in mind to ensure a delightful dining experience:

Choosing Lobster Claws with LobsterAnywhere Quality

  • Look for firm, heavy lobster claws with bright red shells, ensuring a premium quality experience with every bite.
  • Avoid claws with loose meat or discolored shells to guarantee the freshness and flavor LobsterAnywhere is renowned for.

Opting for Convenience with Frozen Lobster Claws

  • Select individually frozen lobster claws for convenience and optimal flavor.
  • Consider LobsterAnywhere’s individually frozen options for a hassle-free cooking experience.

Expert Recommendations from Your Fishmonger

  • Consult your fishmonger for expert advice on the best lobster claws that align with your budget and culinary needs.
  • Leverage the knowledge of your fishmonger to make informed choices, enhancing your LobsterAnywhere experience.

Thawing Technique for Lobster Claws

Ensure the best flavor by following these guidelines when thawing your lobster claws:

Efficient Thawing for Maximum Flavor

  • Thaw frozen claws in the refrigerator overnight or use the cold water submersion method for faster results.
  • Emphasize the importance of avoiding room temperature thawing to prevent bacterial growth, preserving the premium quality of LobsterAnywhere lobster claws.

How to Make Preparation for Cooking Lobster Claws

Learn how to prepare lobster claws with precision using these simple steps:

Removing the Vein and Preparing for Cooking:

  • Once rinsed, proceed to remove the vein that runs along the back of the lobster claw. While this vein is not harmful, some find it unappealing.
  • Optionally, crack the knuckles of the claws for easier access to the meat, enhancing your LobsterAnywhere culinary experience.

Cooking Methods:

There are several methods for cooking LobsterAnywhere lobster claws, each offering a unique flavor and texture. Here’s a guide to the most popular methods:

Boiling – Simple and Traditional:

  • Boiling is the simplest and most common method. Bring a large pot of water to a boil, add the lobster claws, and cook for 7-10 minutes for thawed claws and 12-16 minutes for frozen claws.

Steaming – Gentle and Flavorful:

  • Steaming preserves more of the lobster’s natural flavor. Place the lobster claws in a steamer basket and steam for 8-10 minutes for thawed claws and 10-12 minutes for frozen claws.

Grilling – Smoky and Distinctive:

  • Grilling imparts a smoky flavor to the lobster claws. Preheat your grill to medium-high heat, place the claws on the grill, and cook for 6-8 minutes per side until the shells are bright red and the meat is opaque.

Broiling – Charred Perfection:

  • Broiling adds a nice char to the lobster claws. Preheat your broiler to high, place the claws on a baking sheet, and broil for 5-7 minutes per side until the shells are red and the meat is cooked through.
  • By following these user-friendly steps, you’re not just cooking lobster claws; you’re creating a culinary masterpiece with LobsterAnywhere.

Absolutely Excellent

Love those Lobster Claws. My order was delivered in a timely manner and was very well packaged. The Lobster Claws are very sweet and delicious. I haven’t tried the soups yet and looking forward to it. I will definitely be ordering again. I highly recommend. I also liked the oyster crackers that came with the soup.

OK, but no instructions on preparing

Nice recipe book included, but did not have what I ordered in it.
Would have given 5 star if they would have sent instruction on preparing the claws.
