Impress your Sweetheart with a Lobster Bake

Are you planning a culinary treat for your loved one? Does your sweetheart love seafood? If yes, then won’t it be a fabulous idea to include seafood in the menu? If your loved one truly is a foodie and seafood lover then he or she will be overjoyed to see brilliantly cooked seafood served to them. However, rustling up some grub and rustling up good quality seafood dishes are two different things.

To cook fabulous seafood dishes you first need to buy fresh seafood like lobsters, crabs, mussels, scallops and shrimps. However, if you want to buy your seafood fresh, you have to wake up really early and rush to the docks or the fish market to get the freshest of the lot. But as most people these days work till late at night and have to rush back to work again in the morning, going to the fish market early is close to impossible. However, this does not mean that people who work will be deprived of a scrumptious seafood meal.

Seafood meals, dinners and bakes are now available online. That is right. So now, all you have to do to sink your teeth into some deliciousness, is go online, choose what you want and get it delivered to your doorstep. These frozen seafood meals just need to be thawed and put into an oven or on a grill. One of the best seafood goodies available online is the Maine lobster bake. This bake includes hand selected goodies like,

• 2 Maine lobster tails
• 8 ounces of mussels
• 4 Atlantic crab claws
• 4 ounces of scallops
• 4 Jumbo shrimps and
• 2 corn on-the-cobs

If you want to add a little something extra to this then you can opt for the Superior Lobster Bake For Two. This meal consists of all the contents of the Maine lobster bake and in addition has:

• 2 (5 ounce) succulent and soft Filet Mignon and
• 2 (4-5 ounce) succulent Maine Lobster Tails

These bakes are incredibly easy to make as they come in Alder wood, aroma foil pouches. These lend the smoky flavor that is required for that delicious taste. These pouches need to be put on the grill or into the oven. And in a few minutes you will be able to serve your loved one a plateful of scrumptiousness without sweating it out or skipping a day at work.
