Tristan Lobster Tails
DISTINCTIVE QUALITIES: Genuine Tristan Lobster (Jasus tristani) is a luxurious meal for those looking for a premium dining experience. This most desirable type of rock lobster has a sweet, succulent flavor and a plump texture beyond compare. Sustainably caught. No chemicals or preservatives.Tristan lobster, also referred to as St. Paul rock lobster, is one of the most sought after breeds of crustaceans due to its unique and natural inhabitants of the cold waters around the Southern Indian Ocean.
BEHIND THE PRODUCT: Tristan Rock Lobster is wild-caught and hand extracted in the deep and extremely cold waters off of the coast of the most remote and uninhabited and isolated island in the world, Tristan da Cunha. It is a 3-week boat ride to the clean waters off the South African coast. Wild-caught and flash-frozen upon catch to ensure the freshest of seafood tastes.
SERVING SUGGESTIONS: We suggest grilling or steaming Tristan Island lobster instead of boiling. Boiling draws out too much of its wonderful flavor and dilutes the taste of premium lobster.
We prefer to prepare our Tristan lobster tails simply grilled or classically steamed and served with clarified butter. And why not alongside the best cut of premium New York steak for a surf-and-turf meal like no other.
Try out this fantastic pairing of Echire AOC French salted butter to go with your lobster tail selections for the high-end dining experience of the restaurants.
