It’s Lobster season! And Costco Lobster Claws & Arms are available frozen in 2lb bags! If you like Costco King Crab Legs, check out this wild caught Maine Lobster in the shell! Lobster meat is a lean protein and great for Keto, Paleo, Gluten Free and Pescatarian diets! The pieces are fully cooked and scored to make preparation and eating it a bit easier. Lobster tails are generally available at Costco year round but these are a special summer treat!
Lobster bibs optional 🙂
Of course Lobster is a rather gourmet shellfish – but whether it’s a special occasion, or just whenever depending on what your budget allows, enjoying some Main lobster while it’s in season is a must for lobster fans!
The frozen Maine Lobster at Costco is fully cooked which makes a super easy but delicious meal! Just thaw the amount of lobster you want in the refrigerator or under cold water for some lobster cocktail…or thaw and quick steam to reheat and serve with butter or grass fed ghee! Chef’s choice.
I grew up in New England and now living in Southern California, I miss all the fresh live Maine lobster we used to be able get on Cape Cod!
