Most people boil their lobster, but us here at Overnight Maine
Lobster prefer to steam it. Here is how we like to cook our lobsters.
-Fill a large pot up ¼ full with water
-Add salt, lemon, and onions to the water (optional)
-While you wait for the water to boil, remove the bands. Be careful not to rip the claws off (optional, you can keep the bands on if you’d like)
-Once the water starts boiling, add the lobsters
-After the water is brought to another boil, cook the
lobsters for 10 minutes. They should be bright red
-After 10 minutes remove the lobsters from the pot and let them sit for 5 minutes (they are going to continue to cook)
-ENJOY the freshest, tastiest lobster!!

Guranteed as Fresh as the Maine ocean air or Your Money Back!
Ever smelt a foul fishy smell with your seafood? Yeah that is not good! Our lobster will never show up dead or smelling harsh. It will always show up smelling as fresh as the Maine ocean air. Nobody else can make this gurantee in the entire industry, because their lobster is not as fresh as ours!
How is Our Lobster so Fresh?
Our Lobster is handpicked and sourced direcly from Local Lobsterman. The alternative option for stores that sell Lobsters, is going through a wholesaler. When this happens, lobsters swap hands multiple times, delaying time it takes from the ocean to your door. This makes the Maine "red gold" less fresh from ocean to table.
We also go the extra mile by storing our lobsters in Maine engineered "family secret" salt water tanks with water from the Atlantic Ocean. This process mimics the lobsters natural environment so it is like they never left the ocean!
Other companies use big tanks with fresh water and than add salt to try and "copy" the Atlantic Ocean. This process is cheaper, easier, makes the losbters shrink in size, they do not live as long, and break down constantly.
Buy now and enjoy the freshest lobster you will ever experience!
Other comapnies are shipping to their customer's, smaller, younger, 1 pound lobsters that are shedding their shells. These smaller lobsters will not have as much meat, will not be as tasty, and because they are shedding their shells, they are likely to die on their way to the customers home.
All of our lobsters are handpciked from our family secret salt water tanks. We specifically only pick the livest lobsters that weigh 1.25 pounds to 1.5 pounds, with a hard shell. This will ensure that you get the livest, freshest, most meat packed, best tasting lobster that Maine has to offer!
Fresh, Wild Caught & Organic
Fresh, Wild Caught and Organic Lobster is much tastier compared to lobster in a can or frozen lobster.
