Serve Maine Lobster at Your Next Party
Do you have a special party coming up on your calendar of events? If so, offer your guests a delightful, succulent dish that revolves around fresh, genuine live Maine lobster that’s been delivered to your home. It will surely be the centerpiece of a memorable social gathering.
With so many different sizes to choose from, it can be a challenge to figure out which live Maine lobster is right for your next event. Choosing the appropriate size is much easier once you know what kind of party you’re going to host.
If you’re going to host a lobster bake, lobsters that weigh between one and 1 ¼ pounds are a great choice. Even if your guests are “big eaters,” lobsters that weigh one to 1 ¼ pound are usually enough if you serve one lobster per person and provide an assortment of side dishes to round out each plate.
If you’re concerned that smaller lobsters might not be enough to satisfy your guests, then you may want to step up to halves or deuces. Halves are lobsters than weigh 1 ½ pound. As you probably guessed, deuces are lobsters that weigh a solid two pounds. Lobsters of this size will give you and your guests an idea of what it’s like to enjoy lobster in our own backyard in Maine.
If you’re going to serve lobster family style or you’re planning a couple’s night where you intend to serve one lobster per couple, 2 ½ pound or three-pound lobsters will work well for the occasion. These lobsters are big enough to share — although the lobsters we sell are so good, you may not want to.
A party or get together is the perfect time to serve fresh lobster from Maine Lobster Now. No matter what size you ultimately decide to order, you won’t be disappointed with your Maine lobster, and neither will your guests.
