Live Maine Lobster and Fresh East Coast Oysters - A Spectacular New Year's EveBuxton's - Day Boat Fresh
Celebrations are the time for Lobster and Oysters. Perhaps it is because the best pairing with Oysters is champagne. Or perhaps it is because anyone can steam or boil a lobster - even while being extremely festive! These are the classic hard shell, big-clawed Maine lobsters and the classic east coast oysters. Minimum of 10 pounds of Lobster per order.
Whatever the reason, it is a great time to put these two spectacular favorites on the table and bring in the New Year. We have put a combination together of 2 lobster and a dozen oysters. This package should arrive at your door on December 31.
Lobster Lovers Combination. Four or Six 1.5 or 1.25 pound lobsters and 3 dozen East Coast (Maine) Oysters.
Additional Oysters. You can order more oysters in one dozen increments.
Shipping Lobsters and Shellfish:
Lobsters and Oysters are unique in that they can get oxygen from both the water and the air. Like most shellfish they can become exposed on the beach or rocks during low tide. The lobster has evolved so that it can survive outside the water until the tide returns. (Normally around 8-10 hours). If a lobster or Oyster is kept in cold damp area, it can survive for up to 48 hours. Do not put lobster in either fresh or seawater and keep refrigerated until cooked (within 12 hours of receipt).
While you may want an oyster shucking knife, many people open them with blunt (butter- like) knives. Be sure to wear a heavy glove at least on the hand holding the oyster. Serve with a variety of sauces, but a bit of horseradish and lemon are a must, we think.
