Lobster meat from Maine Lobster Now is cooked the same day and flash frozen to maintain flavor and optimal freshness. Each piece is thick, juicy, and perfect to add to salads, soups, and your favorite lobster recipes.
Clams, oysters, shrimp, and mussels are all available through Maine Lobster Now. Our shellfish are of the highest quality, and make for perfect appetizers on their own with a side of lemon and butter, or added to classic holiday recipes like linguine and stuffing.
4. Alaskan King Crab
If you love crab, you will be so excited about our huge Alaskan King Crab legs. We purchase directly from fishermen in the Pacific Northwest, who are able to offer us a range of sizes. Because of our connection directly to the source, our Alaskan King crab leg selection includes sizes that cannot be found in supermarkets. We are talking huge pieces of meat per leg on our colossal and super colossal sizes specifically.
5. Lobster Mac & Cheese
The Lobster Mac & Cheese comes in a variety of sizes, including individual and family portions. Saying happy holidays with a ready-to-bake lobster mac & cheese from Maine Lobster Now is sure to leave an impression.
6. USDA Black Angus Prime Steak
That’s right. We sell steaks too, because who doesn’t love some steak on the side of a lobster tail? We definitely do. Choose from Rib Eye, Filet Mignon, or Strip USDA Black Angus Prime steaks to serve alongside your favorite seafoods.
7. Seafood Soup or Chowder
All of our soups and chowders are loaded with large pieces of seafood, like clams and lobster. They are ready to heat up and enjoy, making them the perfect gift for loved ones to indulge in on a cold snowy day.
8. Sea Scallops
With five sizes to choose from, and ready-to-cook bacon wrapped scallops too, our scallops are perfect for the holidays. Serve them up at your next party or gift them to someone who can enjoy them their own favorite way.
Wild Alaskan Sockeye Salmon and North Atlantic Salmon are amazing proteins to have on hand. This fish offers up Omega 3s and a dose of healthy fats. Best of all, salmon is a festive addition to holiday recipes. Make some lox or add to a fresh salad on Christmas Eve for a pop of color and flavor.
10. Lobster Tails
Maine lobster tails come in sizes ranging from 3 oz to 14 oz. The smaller tails make for a perfect side, especially if you are serving it up with some steak. The largest tails make a statement on the table, but are best served with little else as they are quite filling. These delicacies are hard to find fresh in many states, so send some to your favorite people this holiday season to put a smile on their faces.

Nothing will draw up memories of summertime like a Maine-made blueberry pie served with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Surprise friends at your next holiday party with one or have one overnighted to a loved one.
