Bowie business brings Maine lobster to MD

Maine natives Jonathan Merrill and Tyler Simpson recently started LobsterME, a service that ships fresh, live Maine lobster straight to Maryland businesses and residents. LobsterME offers live lobsters, frozen tails, and packaged meat for lobster rolls in a variety of sizes. ‘Our Maine Lobster is packaged in individual "condos" which makes them arrive fresh, live, and less "stressed" (meaning higher content of meat in the shell),” Merrill says. “They are easy to cook, steam in 1-2 inches of water for about 8 minutes (per pound of lobster). You will know when the lobster in done by the shell being bright red and the antennae comes off easily when gently pulled.” Order by calling 207-485-1955 or get more information at Facebook.com/Lobstermaine.
