Although big-clawed, cold water Maine lobsters are more familiar to many Americans, Florida Spiny Lobsters present a fantastically distinct look, taste, and culinary experience that we are thrilled to share. Popular throughout the Caribbean and Florida, Spiny Lobsters contain the vast majority of their meat in their tails, but also in their body, yielding a firmer texture than the claw meat of Maine Lobsters, and a crisper balance between sweetness and umami as well. With a generous ratio of meat to shell and the supremely simple accessibility of meat from the tail, Spiny Lobsters are a perfect choice for those who want to enjoy this equisite lobster variety.
With tiger-striping on the underside of their shell and the ornate fan at the end of their tails, the impression that Spiny Lobsters make is no less impressive for their lack of large, clumsy claws. Versatile enough to be enjoyed however you most enjoy lobster, we especially enjoy them grilled whole, or woven into Caribbean-inspired dishes with ample spice, starch, and fresh accompaniments.
Each lobster is 1.5 lb avg weight. 2 or 5 lobsters.
