Lobster risotto is the definition of luxury. Based on a recipe beloved by generations of a Maine family, this version arrives in an oven-safe dish, requiring no work from you other than popping it in a hot oven for 30 minutes. Generous meaty chunks of fresh Maine lobster are the star here. The lobster is combined with creamy Arborio rice, a touch of Swiss cheese and fresh crimini mushrooms for rich depth of flavor. A topping of panko bread crumbs mixed with lemon herb butter adds the finishing touch.

  • 2 lb. 8 oz. (serves 6–8 as an appetizer; 4–6 as an entrée).

  • Rated 5 out of 5 by from Delicious! I have never purchased food online before so I was a little skeptical. The lobster risotto was absolutely fantastic,very creamy and with large pieces of lobster. I will definitely be buying again!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A MUST BUY! Super silky risotto punctuated by heaping hunks of lobster- how can you go wrong? Buttery, herbed panko topping is the perfect juxtaposition to the velvety decadence lying beneath. Crimini mushrooms add a balance of earthiness to this treat, which is worth every penny.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Very little lobster Overall, it had good flavor, but it was very salty and oily, and most disappointingly, had only a few small claw pieces in the entire dish. Since the primary appeal for me was the lobster, I would not recommend it.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Very Salty Texture and content lovely. Oodles of lobster but the three star rating is because the dish was overly salted.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from AMAZING SIDE OR ENTREE The lobster risotto is fabulous! It really does have depth, exactly as advertised, and is rich in flavor but surprisingly light and fresh. Even a relative, who is by no means a foodie, said, "OMG this is good!" The rest of us were too busy licking our plates to comment. I used the risotto as a side to our surf-and-turf Thanksgiving feast. As a side, the risotto fed four of us, plus leftovers for 2. I think it's safe to say we've kissed that turkey goodbye!
