Eeeeeeeww! Do people really eat things like this?



why not???

It's the big claws. Freaks me out. Plus I'm prettified of things like this!

*petrified.

anyone tried this? was tempted last time it was on offer

I'm so tempted!

It's a 375g frozen lobster...... that's a small snack for one.
It's not actually that cheap either - I pay about £9 for a 500g fresh one in season (that's a good size for one person) - but that will depend where you live. Never as good as fresh, but maybe OK with mayonnaise or as the base for a Lobster bisque.

I had it many times. Its one of my favourite seafood. But i never had the frozen one before. Should taste the same though.

Try it! You might like it may be try cooked one first so you dont need to cook it yourself. The meat is very yummy.

how's the taste? prawn or like a crab?

A bit OTT with the comparison there.

Agree. Cod tastes more like haddock than herring.

Lobster tastes a little like a big prawn rather than a crab which is flakier. Claw meat is softer and tail chewy. I like both. Got to have the whole one, just like you would eat a whole egg (white and yoke). Yum!

How do you prepare this as it is already cooked? And do you only eat the claw/tail meat?

It's salty and disgusting!

Not sure cos I usually buy live ones and boil them myself. Yes, you only eat claws/tail because the rest is "head" on which all the rest of the legs are attached and not a lot to eat from it.

Salty and disgusting? So is oyster or caviar? OK, just live on egg and chips. Lol

Mmmm tasty, delicious lobster. Can anyone recommend any eating utensils for this? A spoon just ain't gonna cut it with this, and I'm not cultured enough to know what to use.

I've heard from previous times Lidl did these offers, they were no more bigger than a king prawn! :-)

Don't bother, honestly,they are all ice, when this is defrosted your left with a bite size portion.

I've tried them before and they're terrific at this price. A decent size and plenty for one or two as a starter

Got one of these a while ago and u do only get a thimble of salty dry meat.Tried my first proper lobster with a surf n turf on holiday and it was really delicious.No comparison to this.Unfortunately it's too expensive for me to eat in the UK

That's what she said.

tried before and theya re a lil on the salty side - as frozen in salty water

a fiver in morrisons not a frozen one either

They are not that big once thawed out but where else are you going to get it this easily? It freaked me out the first time even though it is long dead and frozen. I was expecting to get a nip then I lifted it from the pan. Also they can make a mad squealing noise but I think it's steam coming out the shell.

So tasty, I will be going to try grab a couple at lunch

We bought it last year when it was on offer, and never again. Horrible and far too salty. Don't let this be your first taste of lobster or you might be put off for life from eating something that is actually really delicious.

They aren't great to be fair - quite watery and overcooked for my liking.

I bought these a year or so ago,I was pleasantly surprised at the taste and quality. I have had similar before but these were the nicest. Concerning being salty we did not find this at all, I can't remember how we cooked it, but we probably did not cook it in the previously frozen salted water. As for size we thought they were fine.

I forgive you this time. I know you don't have the common sense (made it out from your spelling "Propably") to know horsemeat and seafood is like day and night. Don't make silly jokes like this again.:p Kidding no offence.

Hilarious (not).

Kindergarten closed today?

Lobster is one of the best tasting meat of any kind. Sure the thing looks a bit creepy but so does other seafoods like prawns and squid.

This being frozen in salt water, it might be a good idea to wash it in lots of cold water and maybe sit it in a bucket of cold water for a while to wash out the saltiness.

I've never tried frozen lobster before, always ate it fresh. So I'm not sure how frozen affects the taste. Lobster is worth trying at least once in your life I think. The best parts are the tail and the claws where the meat is thickest and juiciest.
