Recipes & Cooking
We recommend taking the lobster cooked, split and cleaned - let us do the hard work. All you need to do is crack the claws and remove the meat from them. The meat from the tail is easily removed too. Cut all the meat into bite sized chunks and put it all back in the shell. Add a squeeze of lemon juice, some chunks of butter and season generously with pepper. Classic Thermidor https://www.fishforthought.co.uk/shop/chef-specials/thermidor-sauce is also hard to beat!
Cooked Lobster is best stored in the fridge as soon as you receive it and consume within 3 days. Alternatively, pop in the freezer and use within 3 months

Health & Nutrition
Lobster is an excellent source of Omega 3, providing 580 mg per 100 g of meat. It is also a rich source of essential vitamins and minerals, including: copper, selenium zinc, phosphorus, vitamin B12, magnesium, and vitamin E.
Sustainability & Provenance
We are really proud of the provenance and quality of our Cornish lobster. We have close relationships with a small number of fishermen and many of them land directly to us. Not only that we provide them with bait for their pots in the form of our fish frames and waste. This is a real win win as it eliminates the need for us to dispose of our waste and provides our fishermen with free bait. Read more
The Best Lobsters
As ever, everything arrived OK thanks and we’ve just eaten the lobsters (a Valentine’s treat for my wife – oh all right, for me too!). The substitution of Turbot in place of the Brill I ordered, which was unavailable, was fine and much appreciated. Thanks for that. Finally, as I’ve said before, your new packaging is a huge improvement and makes the whole process much easier at the receiving end. I keep mentioning FFT to family and friends so I hope you get some more sales from them.

Our perfect meal
Thank you very much for the really wonderful lobsters that I found outside my door on Saturday morning. They were delicious and a great hit with my guests in the evening! I have never seen such big claws! We had some fun getting the hammer out to break into them.... Thank you for a perfect meal with special friends and the chance to celebrate in great, messy, style! Thank you for the freshness of the lobsters and for the very efficient delivery just on the day they were needed! Congratulations on a very good job, well delivered and well done.

Wedding Anniversary Celebrations!
just thought I'd drop you a quick email to let you know our order arrived on Saturday morning. I opened the box and it smelled like Cornwall, the sea. The mussels were superb in the mariniere sauce and the lobster thermidor was fantastic! We were treating ourselves as it is our 26th wedding anniversary tomorrow and to be honest, we prefer to buy the very best ingredients and cook ourselves than go to a restaurant and be disappointed. We were delighted with the quality of the fish, as always.
