Maine Lobster Claws
Maine Lobster Claws 2 lbs
We all love a good lobster dinner. But what if you're not into the mess and hassle of breaking down a whole lobster just to get to the lobster meat? What if you only like certain parts of a lobster?
Pre-cut lobster claws are the answer to that dilemma!
Everyone knows that the lobster claws are the best part of eating lobster. Some people ONLY eat the claws. If you won't miss the tail and the rest mess of cracking lobster shells, we make it possible for you with our lobster claws for sale.
Maine lobster claws are just that, pre-cut and pre-cooked frozen lobster claws. Our lobster claws make it easier for you to enjoy a lobster meal at home without having to mess around with finding live lobster for sale. Depending on where you live, you might not even be able to find fresh lobster for dinner.
Pre-cut lobster claws are also more convenient and accessible for those of us who don't have the hand strength or dexterity to break down a whole lobster. Pre-cute Lobster claws make lobster more accessible to everyone.
Our giant lobster claws for sale are just as delicious as fresh off the boat lobster. We source our lobster from only the highest-quality lobster fishers who know when and where to find the biggest and most beautiful lobster. We do all the work of breaking down the lobster, so you don't have to.
You might be wondering why we leave half the shell on the lobster claw.
Why can't you just de-shell and freeze lobster meat?
There are two reasons we leave half the shell on your lobster claws.
First, presentation is everything. A giant lobster claw simply looks better when presented in the shell. Secondly, those succulent and tasty claw tips are delicate. If we were to remove the whole shell, you might lose half of your lobster claw to breakage, even when frozen. What you see is called empress cut lobster claws. We neatly and expertly remove the bottom half of the shell while preserving the top half of the shell for looks and protecting the lobster meat.
But don't worry.
Once you defrost and reheat your lobster claws, simply pull off the top half of the shell and be well on your way to a fine lobster dinner.

Defrosting and Reheating Frozen Lobster Claws the Easy Way
When you order frozen pre-cut lobster claws from Global Seafoods, they arrive at your door, still frozen over dry ice.
If you're not ready to use your lobster claws just yet, simply pop them into your freezer, where they will keep until you're ready to eat them.
Once you're ready to use your frozen lobster claws, follow these instructions:
- On the morning you plan to serve your lobster claws, remove them from the freezer, and place them in the refrigerator.
- By dinner time, your lobster claws should be defrosted.
- Once defrosted, use your lobster claws as you would any lobster meat in recipes such as lobster bisque or lobster mac and cheese.
To Reheat Lobster Claws:
*We recommend reheating your lobster claws with the shell on in the oven. The shell acts as a steamer for the lobster meat inside. *
- Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
- Create a pouch with aluminum foil and place your lobster claws with the shell on inside the foil. Before folding your pouch, sprinkle the lobster claws with a few drops of water. 1-2 tablespoons of water should be enough.
- Place your foil pouch on a baking sheet and place it in the oven.
- Bake your lobster claw foil pouch for 7-10 minutes or until heated.
- Serve immediately.
Your lobster claws are pre-cooked. Be sure not to overcook them while reheating, or you will end up with a dinner that feels more like rubber than lobster.

One 3.5 oz serving of lobster is just 89 calories.
