At Ocean Fresh, we typically stock Eastern Rock Lobsters. These impressive creatures are full of flavour, and when cooked correctly, have delicious moist flesh. Perfect for special occasions, especially a hot Aussie Christmas!
There are a few ways to purchase lobsters, our in store tanks make it easy for you to take home a live lobster, we also have fresh cooked lobsters that are ready to eat and frozen green lobster tails ready for cooking.
To be treated with respect, Eastern Rocklobsters are great for cooking, steam, poach, deep-fry, pan-fry, stir-fry, bake, grill, and barbecue. The firm flesh holds together well during most cooking methods. Undercook, rather than overcook, as they will continue cooking in the residual heat; overcooked lobster will become tough and leathery.
Live lobsters should be consumed as soon as possible after purchase. Place in a container, cover with damp paper or cloth and keep in the warmest part of the refrigerator, which is usually the crisper (optimum 5°C). Wrap cooked Rocklobsters in plastic wrap or place in an airtight container. Refrigerate for up to 3 days or freeze for up to 3 months below -18ºC.
