Sustainably Harvested Lobster Claw Meat
To ensure the long-term population of lobster – which supports thousands of independently owned businesses here in Maine and all along the North Atlantic coast – we only use lobsters that are wild-caught and sustainably sourced. When you order from Maine Lobster Now, you can feel confident you’re eating great-tasting lobster that’s good for the ocean.
Unmatched Quality and Freshness
Maine Lobster Now delivers lobster cocktail claws that taste better than our competition because it’s fresher. Our frozen lobster claws are fully cooked, flash-frozen with liquid nitrogen, sealed airtight, and shipped straight to your door the next day. It’s like having lobster served to you at a restaurant right here along the majestic Maine coast.
We sustainably source our lobster claw meat directly from independently owned wharfs just a few miles from our headquarters here in Maine and along the expansive Maine coastline. These docks trace all lobster landings to every lobsterman and woman who catches them, and we trace our lobsters to every dock where they landed.
The Serving Size of 1 lb. Lobster Cocktail Claws
One pound of lobster cocktail claws is anywhere between 5 to 7 generously sized claws. These are the perfect size for cocktail parties and appetizers the whole family or dinner guests can enjoy. Our lobster cocktail claws are perfect when dipped in butter or classic seafood cocktail sauce, as well as paired with any number of traditional Maine side dishes like corn on the cob.
Are Lobsters the Next Superfood?
Lobster meat offers a host of beneficial health qualities similar to other “superfoods.” Lobster is an excellent source of protein, offering 19 grams of protein per 3.5 oz. serving.
Lobster also contains a healthy dose of vitamins B3, B6, and B12 to support metabolism and cognitive function. It’s an excellent source of the antioxidant selenium which prevents cellular damage and is high in zinc to boost immunity. Like other seafood we sell, lobster also contains omega-3 fatty acids that help lower inflammation and can reduce the risk of heart disease.
