Cooking your own lobster ensures the best culinary experience. And here’s how: take a six-inch deep pan, put five inches of water in it and add enough salt to make an egg float. Bring to the boil, turn to simmer, and put the defrosted lobster in for 8-10 minutes. It’s as easy as that. For a main course, less than 400g of lobster per serving would be stinting, 700g would be generous. We offer both native British lobster and Canadian lobster. They are slightly different species, but are both clawed lobsters and only connoisseurs could tell the difference. See this guide for how to cook lobster. If you don't want to go through the process of cooking the lobster and extracting the meat we have some other great lobster options such as lobster meat, lobster tails and dressed lobsters

  • Our suggested lobster recipe: Lobster thermidor
  • Lobster species: Native European lobster - Homarus gammarus
  • Ideal lobster serving size for one person as a main course: 600g raw frozen lobster
