Platter components price guide
Lobster – £39 per kilo (Estimate only, price ranges from £28 – £50+ per kilo, Christmas being most expensive time) can weigh between 500g-2kilos (average weight are 600-800g) January – Easter will likely be canadian lobster. At Christmas time, a realistic budget for a Lobster for 2 plus other items on a platter is £45-50+. Example a 500g lobster could be £15 in summer, but £25 at Christmas.
Crab – £12.50 per kilo (Christmas can make them hard to source up to April) can weigh between 900g – 3.6 kilo (average weight are 1.5kilo)
Madagascan Prawns £52 per kilo so around £10-19 each depending on size (Christmas is fairly steady on prices) these are big enough prawns that 1 each on a platter will be plenty, we may put one between 2 if needed to suit budget.
Oysters £1.20 each are live and will not be shucked for you so please request an oyster shucker in your check box if you do not have one – they are charged at £7.50 each then are yours to keep.
Keta Salmon eggs: £12.50
Cooked King Prawns – shell off – We add enough to your platter so each guest will have average 2 or 3 each unless otherwise requested – usually 50p per piece
Cooked King prawns (Crevettes) – shell on – Average 80p per piece
Cooked Peeled Prawns – are small cocktail prawns and will be scattered around on your platter or contained in a clam shell or similar presentation.

Dill and Mustard Sauce and/or seafood sauces can be supplied in dip pots – these are free with the platter.
