We’ve got you covered.

As we continue to innovate and stay connected with friends and family alike, the era of “zoom happy hours” has arrived.  To help keep your happy hours interesting, we’ve created a short list of lobster-themed treats from our recipe archive for you to enjoy if you’re “hosting” one. Some of these recipes are from fishermen, others from our own collection, but all of them delish!  For the most part, these recipes call for basic ingredients that complement lobster to keep things simple. And for those of you opting out of the digital happy hour trend and just looking for some good, old fashioned comfort food, we’ve got you covered too!

The best thing about these recipes? By purchasing Maine Lobster, you’re helping Maine’s lobster fishermen navigate the challenges of COVID-19. Check out our list of Maine companies that deliver lobster products direct to your doorstep.

A tried-and-true recipe from Luke’s Lobster, this Lobster Bloody Mary mix can be garnished with your favorite lobster product – a lobster cocktail claw or grilled lobster tail for extra flavor.

It doesn’t get much easier or tasty than this treat.  If you’re a little behind from home schooling your kids, this dip takes less than 10 minutes to prepare and can be served with crackers or chips.
