12-14 oz. Lobster Tails Are Some of Our Best Sellers
Take a bite out of our delicious, easy-to-prepare, and best-selling 12-14 oz. lobster tails. These tails are easy to cook, so you can quickly crack into thick pieces of tender meat that are great on their own or as part of a lobster recipe.
Sustainably Harvested Lobster
At Maine Lobster Now, we only deliver lobsters that are wild-caught using the latest sustainable harvesting methods that help ensure the long-term population of this coastal favorite and support thousands of independently owned businesses in Maine. You can feel confident that you’re eating great-tasting lobster that’s sourced responsibly.
Unmatched Quality and Freshness
We deliver lobster that is fresher and better tasting than our competitors. We do this by immediately flash-freezing lobster tails using a proprietary liquified nitrogen process to seal in freshness. This means you get lobster delivered to your door that tastes like it just came off the dock. Order 12-14 oz. lobster tails today to bring a taste of Maine home, wherever you live.
We source our lobster tails directly from independently owned wharfs, some just a few miles from our headquarters here in Maine and others all along the North Atlantic coast. Each day the docks trace their landings to every lobsterman and woman who catches them, and we trace our lobsters to every dock where they landed.
The Serving Size of 12-14 oz. Lobster Tails
If you don’t order lobster meat often, knowing what size you need may be difficult. Most 12-14 oz. lobster tails will be enough to feed one person as their main course that includes a lobster side dish. If you don’t have a side dish, you may want to choose one of our jumbo lobster tails to satisfy your appetite. Whether you need lobster tails to change up your weekly dinner routine, or you’re planning a special anniversary dinner-for-two, these lobster tails are sure to be a hit.
Are Lobsters the Next Superfood?
Lobsters offer a host of beneficial health qualities similar to other “superfoods.” Lobster (along with other seafood we sell) 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. And like salmon, lobster also contains omega-3 fatty acids that help lower inflammation and can reduce the risk of heart disease.
