We are experiencing a very bad weather patterns across the country and in Maine as well. There is no catch of lobster around the coast of Maine that cause a huge spike in lobster price. While we still honor all the orders that has placed, we made some price increases on our live lobster products to keep up with the cost rises. We hope for your understanding and hopefully price will come down soon when there is more catch.

In The Oven

Using the oven to reheat dishes is useful for both dishes you have cooked and yet to enjoy lobsters that have been boiled but not yet processed. For lobsters that have just been boiled and have not yet been processed, you should soak them in butter. So when you reheat you just reheat and cook as you like. Here are the steps to use the oven to reheat lobster.

First you need to heat up your oven at 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

Remember you need to heat up your oven at 350 degrees Fahrenheit

Place the lobsters in a oven safe / insulated dish and cover with foil. Make sure there is liquid in the dish (lobster sauce, stock or butter).

Next you need to heat in the oven until the lobster is warm. Depending on your oven, this should take about 5-10 minutes at 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

Come on! Now take the food out of the oven and enjoy it.

An important note comes from Ed McFarland, Ed's Lobster Bar's Chef and Owner, that if you're heating up an entire lobster, cut it in half and place it on a tray. It will take about 20 to 30 minutes to heat up!

In The Frying Pan

If you don't have an oven or you just don't want to use it to heat up, you can use a frying pan! This usage applies to those who just want to warm up the meat, put the boiled meat in a frying pan with a teaspoon of butter. Fry over medium heat and check for ripeness after 5 minutes. When the maturity reaches a satisfactory level, let enjoy it! This is how you reheat the cooked lobster.

In The Microwave

Microwave use is not recommended for reheating lobster dishes. But if you do not have too much time and want to enjoy it quickly, please read our guide carefully!

If lobsters have shells, wrap them in damp (not wet) paper towels. If you're just reheating the meat, you don't need a damp paper towel. Then you add the dish and roast it for 2 minutes.

On The Grill

Playing with fire is really difficult, so if you are confident in your talent give it a try! Fire your Grill first and lightly smear the lobster in olive oil and season with salt and pepper. If the leftover lobster is still in its shell, simply heat the shell on the grill and don't turn it over. This will produce very flavorful lobsters in both cases. Bake until it's hot and enjoy.

How To Reheat Other Parts Of The Lobster?

Lobster Tail

The tail of the lobster is the freshest part and to warm up the freshness you should use the oven. How to do it is very simple as we have instructed above.

Lobster Claws

Just like with a lobster tail, you can reheat the lobster claws in the oven. Read our instructions on how to reheat the lobsters in the oven above to make your food even better!

Lobster Meat

The shelled lobster meat is quite easy to heat up. Since you only handle meat, you can use the stovetop and pan. The first is to choose a pan or frying pan large enough to hold the meat (and have room to move around). Then make sure to add just enough butter to rinse the bottom of the pan. Turn to medium heat and add the rest of the lobster meat. Remember to move the meat around the pan while it is reheating. After four to five minutes, check the color of the meat. Your lobster meat is ready to eat when it is pearly and opaque.

Frozen Lobster

To reheat frozen lobsters you must first thaw them. Then use the methods we introduced above to reheat the lobsters!

Check Lobster

Here comes the most important part. To preserve the delicious flavor of lobsters be sure to use a meat thermometer to make sure your reheated lobster reaches at least 165 degrees Fahrenheit at its thickest part. This keeps you safe from the harmful bacteria that cause foodborne illness. Also, never reheat lobsters that have been in the refrigerator for more than four days.

Instead of reheating the lobster, you can try out recipes with other ingredients like Mac and Cheese Lobster,...
