How to Cook Frozen Lobster

Looking for how to cook frozen lobster? It can be used in dishes just like fresh steamed lobster is used. It can be made into lobster soup, Thermidor, Tetrazzini or other dishes. If you buy frozen seafood get it in the freezer as soon as possible. Do not refreeze seafood that has already thawed.

The best way to eat lobster is to eat it as soon as possible while it is still fresh. If for some reason you get a bunch of lobster and cannot eat it all then of course freeze it to preserve for later. Freeze it in the shells whenever possible, wrap tightly in plastic wrap then in zip lock bags. A good rule to follow is to eat it within three months. Thaw frozen seafood on a plate in the refrigerator; most will thaw within 24 hours.


If you want good results when learning how to cook frozen lobster, keep it under the best conditions while in your freezer. Keep the freezer as cold as possible; deep freezers are the best. Do not crowd the packages up and do not open the door any more than you have to.
