New Collaboration Pairs Momofuku’s Legendary Flavor and Heat with Award-Winning Fresh Seafood from Maine

PORTLAND, Maine, May 20, 2024 – Today, leading direct-to-consumer seafood company Get Maine Lobster announces a partnership with the iconic global brand Momofuku to bring mouth-watering meal kits directly to seafood-lovers’ doorsteps.

Through this collaboration, Momofuku’s culinary creativity meets the exceptional quality of Maine’s freshest catch. Alongside Momofuku’s culinary team, Get Maine Lobster has developed two easy-to-prepare meal kits bursting with flavor and heat, with both dishes taking inspiration from Momofuku’s award-winning restaurants and recipes.

The limited-time Get Maine Lobster x Momofuku Collection includes:

Sichuan Chili Butter Lobster Tails (ORDER NOW): The foundation of this recipe is inspired by flavors found across Momofuku menus — from Sichuan crawfish featured in Dave's cookbook to CCDC's legendary seafood boils to Ssäm Bar's Sichuan chili butter shrimp rice cakes. These Sichuan chili butter lobster tails are addictively delicious and pack a spicy punch. All it takes is 10 minutes to level up these tender tails. You can brush, drizzle, or dip the Sichuan chili butter onto the lobster meat, and we recommend adding some chopped herbs or scallions to round it all out.

Wasabi Yuzu Lobster Roll (launching June 6): Bold and zesty with a swift kick of heat — this isn't your average lobster roll. Aromatic wasabi meets umami-rich kewpie mayo resulting in a savory remoulade sauce with subtle hints of yuzu citrus. Combine your fresh lobster meat with the chilled sauce, toss on some crispy shallots, and load it up inside a buttery New England Split Top Style Roll to create your newest summertime obsession.

“This collaboration is all about bringing quality products and innovative, tasty food to our community of fans, food lovers, and home chefs across the country,” said Mark Murrell, CEO of Get Maine Lobster. “We’re all about coming up with creative and unexpected ways to incorporate seafood into dishes, and making the at-home dining experience even more elevated and enjoyable.”

“After spending a few days up in Maine, exploring the Get Maine Lobster wharf and getting a firsthand look into their operation, I was blown away by the care and quality that goes into every step of their process – ‘Shipped straight from their docks to your doorstep’ is no exaggeration,” said James Parry, VP of Momofuku Restaurant Culinary & Operations. “We're excited to work with Get Maine Lobster's fresh, wild-caught lobster and infuse Momofuku flavor. This collaboration showcases the best of both brands and offers customers a unique way to experience a summertime staple through two easy-to-prepare recipes inspired by a decade of Sichuan chili butter seafood boils served across our restaurants.”

This collaboration comes on the heels of other notable partnerships Get Maine Lobster has brought to life for its customers. In recent years, Get Maine Lobster has paired up with Mastercard to offer virtual Priceless experiences from world-class chefs, collaborated with RTIC to provide a sustainable, giftable option for foodies, and worked with well-known celebrity chefs like Fabio Viviani, Roble Ali, and Dena Marino to demonstrate new and exciting ways to serve lobsters and other fresh seafood.

For a limited time only, customers can order the two easy-to-assemble meal kits below from Momofuku and Get Maine Lobster at GetMaineLobster.com. Each meal kit comes with fresh ingredients, simple preparation instructions, and the recommended ingredients to have on-hand at home to finish the dish.

We are honored to partner with Momofuku and look forward to delighting you with these extraordinary meal kits.

Best regards,

Founder, Get Maine Lobster
