Ways to eat Rock Lobster at Sydney Fish Market

Last Christmas saw the prices of some Rock Lobster drop, transitioning them from a once-in-a-lifetime delicacy to a much more accessible treat! Sydney Fish Market is, of course, your one stop shop for all things seafood, but many people don’t know about the sheer amount of options our retailers provide for each different species…

Today we’re running you through five ways to enjoy Rock Lobster at Sydney Fish Market, so you can try this coveted species in your favourite cooking style!

 

  1. Live, and cooked to order…

Many of our retailers, including Christie’s, Nicholas, and Peter’s, allow you to choose a lobster from their live tanks, and have it cooked fresh to order! You can pick your cooking style and flavours too, with options including Ginger and Shallot, Salt and Pepper, Garlic Butter, Singapore Chilli, Oyster Sauce, and XO sauce. Served with noodles or fresh vegetables, this style is great for sharing with a few friends, as the portions are extremely generous! You can even order it online here.


 

  1. Lobster Mornay…

Cheese-lovers can’t go past a Lobster Mornay from one of our hot food retailers… Whoever thought of combining perfectly cooked lobster with a molten blanket of melted cheese deserves a medal. You’ll normally be served half of a small lobster in this dish, making it the perfect size for one, and allowing you to leave plenty of room for the other delicious treats you’ll find at the market. If you'd rather stay home, you can order online here.


 

  1. Lobster Tails with Garlic Butter…

The name of this dish alone will make your mouth water. Don’t miss adding lobster tails in garlic butter to your lunchtime seafood platter – they are meltingly delicious, scattered with fresh herbs, and always super fresh. If you’re not quite ready to commit to a full half-lobster, the tails are a smaller and cheaper option that will still hit the spot.


 

  1. Lobster and Noodles special at Doyles…

Doyles Seafood Restaurant is an institution at Sydney Fish Market, and for good reason. If you’re looking for a place to sit away from the hustle and bustle of the boardwalk and main arcade, grab a table at Doyles and order their Lobster Noodle special! Again, you’re able to choose your flavour adventure with this dish, picking from Hong Kong-style Garlic Butter, XO Sauce, Salt and Pepper, Singapore Chilli, or Ginger and Shallots!


 

  1. Lobster Rolls from Peters’ Aburi Bar…

The Aburi Bar at Peters is super popular with visitors, providing freshly blowtorched snacks like cheesy Aburi scallops, eel skewers, grilled salmon, and a new addition: lobster rolls! Featuring mouth-watering lobster meat on a brioche bun, with melted cheese and fresh fish eggs on top, you can’t go past these rolls for a quick bite as you’re wandering our retailers. Alternatively, order them online, individually or in a platter!
