Frozen lobster claws only

BeeZee Jul 25, 2011 02:25 PM

bought a small package of frozen claws...do I need to defrost before cooking (planning on boiling them for salad)? I've never just cooked the claws, would 10 minutes be about right, or is that too long?

    I may be wrong, but I thought they cooked them and then froze them.

      I think the prior poster mAy be right about them being cooked already. If not I would say 10 minutes is way too long (they should be thawed first).

      Maybe.there is a website on the package that offers tips and suggestions.

        Can you call the place where you bought them and find out if they're already cooked or not?

          Bought them at the local supermarket, will check tonite if they are red or still green/black. Threw them in the freezer last week and haven't looked at them since. There is no fancy packaging with directions, they were just on a styro tray with plastic sealed around.
