Buy cooked lobster, fully-prepared and cooked to perfection. Each one of our whole lobsters is caught sustainably from the fresh waters of the Cornish coast in the UK. Once caught, the lobster is prepared and cooked by experts right on our premises. We cook all our lobsters whole in boiling water, to maintain their flavour and freshness. Once cooked, the lobster will be sent to our customers straight away with no freezing involved to ensure the freshness and flavours are maintained. At no point, will we ever send our customers frozen or previously frozen cooked lobsters. When you order our cooked lobster from us, you will receive one whole cooked lobster. This lobster will contain white meat found in the tail and claws of the lobster. It will also have Tomalley. This is the soft green or red substance which is found in the body cavity of Lobsters that fulfills the function of both the liver and pancreas. The tomalley is perfectly safe to eat and is often considered a delicacy. It may be used in sauces for flavour and as a natural thickening agent or eaten alone. **What to expect when you buy a cooked Lobster:** * All our lobsters are pot-caught by small boats fishing the Cornish Coast * We are 'Recommended' by the Cornwall Good Seafood Guide * We are proud to support the Lobster Hatchery Buy-One-Set-One-Free Campaign * Our cooked lobsters are an excellent source of Omega 3 oils and essential vitamins and minerals * Each lobster is humanely prepared, cooked and dispatched with our very own 'crustastun'.

Recipes & Cooking

Preparing a cooked lobster. Once you receive your lobster, we recommend storing it in the fridge until you are ready to eat it. Take a sharp knife, place it in the centre of the back of the lobster and split the lobster in half lengthways. Crack the claws and remove the meat from each one then carefully remove the meat from the tail, cut into chunks and put it all back in the shell to serve. Add a squeeze of lemon juice, some chunks of butter and season generously with pepper.

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](https://www.fishforthought.co.uk/blog/sustainable-lobster)

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.
