Lobster is lovely but even after you’ve cooked it, there’s lots of faffing. So here is a lazy lobster - we’ve split it, removed the yukky bits, transferred the claw and knuckle meat to the head cavity. That makes the perfect dressed lobster - all you have to do is to eat it. Each pack comprises the two halves. Serves 1 or 2 depending on the state of your bank account. Order now, then put your wine in the fridge. We also offer a smaller dressed lobster. Please note that the weights stated are AFTER dressing. From raw to dressed, about half the weight disappears. So a 300g dressed lobster started out as a 600g raw lobster. Also, our lobsters include no ’makeweights’ (such as sauce - but you can certainly add your own very easily). You are just buying the original lobster in its own shell and if we think the lobster once split was a little short of meat, we add some to fill the shell. We use about 100 lobsters to make 90 dressed lobsters. Try making a lobster thermidor with our best-dressed lobsters. 

  • Steam cooked lobster (keeps it moister than boiling)
  • Generally, we use Canadian lobsters for dressing (see source at the top of the page)
  • Perfect to help you get a head start on making your lobster thermidor
