As New Englanders who love Maine Lobster, we are always eager to get to cooking up some delicious Maine Lobster meals! However, don’t let the thawing or defrosting of your lobsters hold you back.
Here are some of our tips when it is time to thaw and defrost your frozen lobster tails!
Option A: Thaw your lobster tails by placing in the refrigerator overnight.
Option B: If you need to thaw your Maine lobster tails on the same day, place the tails in a sealed plastic bag and submerge in cold water. Change the water every 15 minutes for 1 hour to 1 ½ hours.
Option C: If you’re in a major rush you can dethaw your lobster tails in a microwave. Set your microwave to defrost. Set the time on your microwave to allow 3 minutes per tail. We don’t recommend this way because you can easily cook your lobsters in the microwave as well. So be vigilant and defrost in 2 min increments if you’re tails aren’t completely defrosted.
After completely thawing, your Maine lobster tails will be ready to cook!
