Lobster Rolls – Fresh Maine Lobster Meat

Written By: Kathy - May• 05•14

Traditionally these delightful dishes started in New England as early as 1929!  Fresh lobster meat soaked in butter and served on a steamed roll.  Today you might find Lobster Rolls with mayonnaise not butter and other common ingredients might be lettuce, onion, lemon juice, parsley, salt & pepper.  Here in the US, they are common in Maine and New England states where lobster fishing is common.

One special characteristic of the “roll” is that, even though they are shaped like a hot dog bun, the sides are flat so that it can be buttered and slightly baked or grilled.  It’s common for the lobster meat to be cold instead of hot.

The best lobster meat for Lobster Rolls is Fresh TCK or rather tails, claws & knuckle meat.  At Quality Fresh Seafood, fresh Maine TCK is premium sweet, succulent lobster meat and is second to none.  Definitely my choice when planning to prepare Lobster Rolls without the fuss and shell.  Click here to be taken to the Lobster Meat Section.

So begin planning your Lobster Roll event now.  Spring and summer are great times for family and friend gatherings outside on a picnic table or a fun sports game watching party.

I would definitely have 2 pounds of premium lobster meat for 6 people.  You’ll also need mayonnaise (¾ cup), lemon juice (1), celery (3 stalks and leaves finely chopped), fresh parsley (chopped), salt and ground black pepper.  You’ll need 6 rolls (split and toasted) plus butter (melted).

Chop any large chunks of lobster meat (it should all be bite size).  Mix all the ingredients together and chill for 15 minutes.

Brush the outsides of each roll with melted butter and fill with the lobster mixture and there you go!  Lobster Rolls

New England Clambakes: A Thanksgiving Event

Written By: Kathy - May• 03•14

NEW ENGLAND CLAMBAKES FOR THANKSGIVING – The Pilgrims’ first feast in 1621, consisted of lobster, mussels, and clams!  The very same items you can find in New England Clambakes.  Let’s face it.  Sometimes traditions can get boring.  Nothing livens up an old traditional holiday like a New England Clambake.

IT’S AN EVENT – Imagine the doorbell rings.  It’s UPS with a delivery, a box!  You bring the box inside and everyone wants to know what’s inside.  Once opened, you can’t imagine the surprised faces of everyone watching.  Live Lobsters!

SIMPLE TO PREPARE – Clambakes are actually easier to prepare than the usual, traditional, turkey and dressing. You’ll have more time to spend with your family and friends.   Layer the vegetables, shellfish, and seafood.  Cover and steam. That’s it!  Get everyone involved in the process and the fun begins.

HEALTHIER THAN TURKEY – Lobster is lower in fat and cholesterol than chicken or turkey, and a high protein alternative.  You just won’t experience that low in the afternoon like you do when you’ve had turkey.

PURCHASE ONLINE – SHIPPED OVERNIGHT TO YOUR DOOR – There’s no shopping trips to crowded grocery stores.  You can purchase New England Clambakes complete with fresh, live Maine lobsters, right from the comfort of your own home.  Choose a delivery date and this feast is delivered to your front door, hassle-free!

VARIETY OF CHOICES – Quality Fresh Seafood, our online seafood market specializes in many styles and varieties of clambakes to choose from depending upon your preference of seafood items.  All come with fresh, live Maine lobsters, succulent shellfish, and chowder.  Many styles allow you to choose the size of live lobster (1.25, 1.75, or 2-2.5 pounds each lobster). You can find more detailed information by visiting CLAMBAKE CELEBRATION

HOW LARGE IS YOUR PARTY? – Since each New England Clambake serves two people, you would want to order two clambakes for four people and so on. Also, you’ll want to look at the different varieties of clambakes as some offer more seafood items than others.

ABOUT DELIVERY – Generally, seafood can be shipped Monday arriving Tuesday, or shipped Tuesday arriving Wednesday before Thanksgiving.  No seafood orders can be shipped Wednesday overnight due to the fact that UPS nor Fedex will deliver on Thanksgiving.  There will be no shipments on Thursday (Thanksgiving) arriving on Friday for the same reason, however, they can be shipped Friday and delivered on Saturdays in many areas of the United States (some rural areas aren’t offered as a Saturday Delivery option.

New England Clambakes Make GREAT Gifts!

What to buy the person who has everything!  What a time consuming and frustrating dilemma.
 
At Quality Fresh Seafood, I hear this a lot throughout the year when speaking to new customers.  I hear “last year we got them (fill in the blank), but this year we want to get them something special and surprise them!”
 Clambake
Why not give a New England Clambake.  
 
Who doesn’t love fresh lobster, sweet succulent shellfish, plump shrimp, and delectable scallops fresh from Maine!  And you would be amazed to know how easy they are to prepare!  New England Clambakes make great gifts during holidays and special occasions too!  Here are just a few ideas below.
 
HOLIDAYS: New Year’s, Valentine’s day, Mother’s day, Memorial day, Father’s day, Labor day, Thanksgiving, Christmas, etc.
LIFE EVENTS:  Weddings, vacations, family reunions, anniversaries, Boss’ Day, employee appreciation, etc.
 
Whatever the special occasion or holiday you choose, you can bet it will be memorable!  You should put a slight bit of thought into it to consider a few things first.

First, think about timing and your delivery date.   At Quality Fresh Seafood, orders are shipped overnight, and delivery can be Tuesday through Friday and in some cases Saturday.  Once delivered, the seafood should be eaten as soon as possible, preferably that day or night.  There are ways and things you can do to serve your clambake the next day. 
 
Our New England Clambakes at Quality Fresh Seafood come with enough seafood for two people.  I suggest you double and triple the order if you want to increase the party size.  Feel free to call me for questions on larger parties, such as a Wedding Party or Family Reunion.
 
When you’re just not sure about the timing, I always suggest a Quality Fresh Seafood Gift Certificate.  Maybe you’re not sure about the type of clambake (there are 3 traditional types and 3 specialty types at our store site).  Or you may not be sure about the delivery date and you really want to surprise your recipient(s). A Gift Certificate can be your answer.  You can send/give Gift Certificates at any time on any day.  All your recipient has to do is plan the day and call me to request delivery.  It’s that simple.
