Wild Cold Water Lobster Tails

Wild Cold Water Lobster Tails

 

Indulge in the epitome of seafood luxury with our wild cold water lobster tails. Bursting with rich flavor, succulent sweetness, and a firm meaty texture that delights the palate, these exquisite lobster tails promise an unforgettable dining experience. Harvested from the pristine unpolluted glacial waters off the coasts of Maine, New Brunswick and Nova Scotia, our cold water lobster tails are celebrated for their exceptional quality. Wild caught cold water lobster tails have so much to offer, including:

 

Richer Flavor

Cold water lobster tails have a more intense, sweet, and succulent flavor compared to that of warm water lobster tails. The cold water environment contributes to the development of richer flavors in the lobster meat.

 

Firmer Texture

Lobster tails from colder waters typically have firmer meat texture, which many people prefer. This firmness adds to the overall enjoyment of the dining experience, providing a satisfying mouthfeel.

 

Versatility in Cooking

Cold water lobster tails are versatile and can be cooked using various methods, such as grilling, broiling, steaming, boiling, or baking. Their firm texture holds up well to different cooking techniques, allowing for a wide range of culinary creations.

 

For a classic and elegant approach, try broiling lobster tails with a simple garlic butter glaze, allowing the rich flavors to shine. Grilling lobster tails brushed with herb-infused olive oil offers a smoky twist, perfect for outdoor gatherings. Alternatively, steaming lobster tails with a splash of white wine and fresh herbs preserves their tender texture and delicate taste.

 

Whether you prefer the simplicity of steaming or the indulgence of baking, there is a perfect cooking method to elevate the exquisite flavors of lobster tails to new heights.

 

Freedom from Antibiotics and Hormones

Wild-caught lobsters from cold water environments are not raised in aquaculture settings, meaning they are free from antibiotics and hormones often used in aquaculture operations. This can be appealing to those seeking natural and organic food options.

 

Sustainability

Wild-caught cold water lobsters are often considered more sustainable than warm water varieties. Lobsters from regions like Maine are typically harvested in a well-managed fishery with strict regulations to ensure the long-term health of the lobster population and the marine ecosystem.

 

Great Nutritional Value

For such a culinary luxury, you might be surprised at how nutritious lobster really is for you.

 

Nutritional Benefits

A one cup (145 gram) serving of boiled or steamed lobster contains:

128 calories

27 grams of protein

1.25 grams fat (only 0.15 grams of saturated fat)

0 grams carbohydrates

198% of your daily recommended allowance (RDA) for copper

190% of your RDA for selenium

53% of your RDA for zinc

51% of your RDA for vitamin B12

 

Low in Calories and Fat

With less than 130 calories per serving and minimal saturated fat, it is an excellent choice for a healthy diet.  While it is low in saturated fat, it provides a meaningful amount of omega 3 fatty acids.

 

A Rich Source of Protein

Lobster is a protein powerhouse, with the majority of its calories coming from protein. A 145-gram portion of lobster contains a protein punch of 27grams (108 of the total 128 calories!). Lobster protein will keep you satiated.

 

Loaded with Vitamins and Minerals

Lobster meat is bursting with essential vitamins and minerals that promote overall well-being. This nutritional picture includes choline, copper, selenium, zinc, potassium, magnesium, calcium, phosphorus, and Vitamins B6, B12 and E.   Some of these benefits include:

 

Choline: Choline has an important role in many metabolic processes, including the synthesis of fats that support the structural integrity of cell membranes; as well as facilitating the metabolism of fats required for removing cholesterol from the liver, DNA synthesis, neurotransmission, maintaining memory, muscle movement, regulating heartbeat and other basic functions.

 

B Vitamins: Lobster is loaded with vitamin B12, which keeps nerve and blood cells healthy, and plays a crucial role in preventing certain types of anemia.

 

Selenium: Lobster also contains selenium: a mineral essential for a healthy thyroid. Selenium also acts as an anti-oxidant, protecting your body from damage caused by free radicals.

 

Zinc: Lobster is rich in zinc, which supports your immune system and aids in protein production. When cold and flu season hits, lobster’s health benefits are especially important.

 

Potassium: Important for maintaining fluid balance, muscle contractions, and nerve signals.

 

Copper: Necessary for the production of red blood cells, energy metabolism, and connective tissue formation.

 

Calcium and Phosphorus: Essential for bone health, strengthening and increasing your bone density. This helps prevent osteoporosis and other age-related diseases that can impact bone health.

 

Good source of Omega 3 Fatty Acids

Lobster benefits include two types of omega 3s anti-oxidants including EPA, (eicosapentaenoic acid), and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid). This protects the body from oxidative damage by free radicals.

 

What an impressive nutritional profile for such a delightful dining experience! Now, let’s see how this translates into actual health benefits for you.

 

Health Benefits

 

  1. Supports Brain Health

   

Lobster is a good source of choline, which is important for brain function and may play a role in cognition. According to a Nutrients study published in 2019, choline plays an important role in a baby's brain development, making it an important nutrient for pregnant and breastfeeding women to consume.

 

Omega-3 fatty acids, particularly DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) and EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid), are also abundant in cold water lobster meat. These fatty acids are essential for brain health and cognitive function, promoting memory, concentration, and mood stability, thus reducing the risk of conditions like depression and ADHD.

 

  1. Supports a Healthy Immune System

 

 A one-cup serving of cooked lobster contains over 50% of the daily recommended allowance (RDA) for zinc, making it an excellent source of this mineral. Zinc is a major player for your immune system, helping to fight infections and heal wounds.

 

  1. Support for Healthy Thyroid Function

 

Lobster is rich in both selenium and iodine, two nutrients that are linked to a healthy thyroid. The thyroid plays an important role in metabolism, body temperature regulation, growth and development, and proper hormone regulation, among other bodily functions.

 

  1. Supports Bone Health

 

The calcium and phosphorus present in lobster tail meat is essential for bone health by increasing bone density and strength. This helps prevent osteoporosis and other age-related diseases that can impact bone health.

 

  1. Supports Joint Health

 

The anti-inflammatory properties of omega-3 fatty acids found in cold water lobster tails may help alleviate joint pain and stiffness associated with conditions like arthritis, promoting joint mobility and overall joint health.

 

  1. Weight Management

 

Lobster meat is low in calories and carbohydrates while being high in protein, making it a satisfying and nutritious option for those watching their calorie intake or aiming to maintain a healthy weight.
