Australian Lobster tails - retail

cagey | Dec 29, 2011 10:22 AM

I've searched previous posts on this, and found quite a bit on where to buy whole Maine lobsters. We're looking to find some Australian lobster tails for New Years. In previous years, Costco (and other stores) carried them. Now, the only ones they carry are the Brazilian tails. Other markets (Gelson's, Sprouts, etc) also have Brazilian and/or tails from Honduras. Same bug I would assume - greenish in color. However, I have found them to be inferior to cold-water Aussie tails.

The only store I've found thus far that sells Aussie tales is Bristol Farms - at $79 a pound. Ouch. If anyone can tell me where else to look, I'd appreciate it. (No, we're not looking for whole Mainers but thanks.)
