Moreton Bay bugs – raw or cooked




Moreton bay bugs raw available in 2 sizes – large ~ 200-250g each or extra large ~300-500g each or cooked in medium size ~150-200g each. FROZEN THAWED. Please use the notes section at checkout if you would like us to keep them frozen for you instead of thawing.

Average yield is 30% from each bug with the edible flesh only in the tail. Have a medium, sweet, rich flavour (milder than Balmain Bug but stronger than Rock Lobster), low oiliness and dry, firm flesh.

To remove meat from shells, either split Bug lengthwise, or, to keep meat in one piece, remove head, turn tail over and cut down either side of the tail using kitchen scissors, peel underside of tail back and remove meat.

Make a wonderful entrée or side with fresh cooked vegetables or a salad for a lunch or dinner treat. Great cooked on the barbeque or grilled too!
