Wild-Caught Maine Lobster Tails
Lobster is a festive treat, all buttery, sweet, and tender—and with these flash-frozen lobster tails, we’re now celebrating all the time. Particularly as we approach entertaining season, these are just the thing to have on-hand for last-minute gatherings. The tails are naturally processed to preserve the lobster’s sweet, fresh flavor. Simply defrost in the refrigerator and get cooking! We did, and we loved them: Josh Cohen, our test kitchen chef, cooked up these lobster tails with pasta and fennel. His verdict? “If I hadn’t cooked this dish myself, I’d never have known the lobster was previously frozen—and I’d never have known it was just tails.” A rave review!
