    TORONTO, Dec. 10 /CNW/ - This Holiday season Clearwater Seafoods Ltd.
offers Canadians a new gourmet experience through its exclusive offering on
    "Our partners at Clearwater gave us food for thought in suggesting
lobster as a fresh alternative to the more traditional turkey dinner," said
Michael Duggan, National Manager, E-commerce, Sears Canada. "We are pleased to
be the first broad line retailer to offer Canadians this whole new way to look
at the Holiday feast! Whether it's a romantic dinner for two or a casual party
with friends, lobster creates a whole new Holiday gourmet theme, especially in
communities where fresh seafood is not easily accessible."
    Customers can order a variety of lobster and seafood packages at with a special Holiday discount of 10 per cent. Clearwater
Seafoods, the Bedford, Nova Scotia-based company with over 30 years of
experience harvesting lobster, delivers them to customer homes almost anywhere
in Canada within 48 hours.
    "Customers may be wondering why Sears is selling lobster," adds Mr.
Duggan. "The answer is simple. As a retailer with the broadest online
assortment in Canada, we are always looking for ways to expand our offering
and deliver a more complete shopping experience."
    Customers can choose from seven dinner packages that have everything
needed to make a tantalizing lobster meal, complete with cooking instructions.
    "Lobster is one of those few dishes that look festive and sophisticated
but are easy to make," says Tony Jabbour, General Manager of the Lobster
Division at Clearwater Seafoods. "Our lobster is harvested at peak quality
when shells are hardest and meat succulent. Whether served as a main course
meal or a side dish, it is a sure recipe to surprise and delight your guests
on any Holiday occasion."
    With lobster, you can be as imaginative as you want to be, setting a
special culinary theme for your celebration. Recipe ideas range from classic
lobster boiled with nothing but sea salt to more sophisticated lobster and
brie fondue cooked with white wine and served with asparagus. Lobster is also
unbeatable as an appetizer - for example, delectable mushroom cups stuffed
with juicy lobster meat and accented with shredded parmesan cheese.
    Clearwater's lobster delivery is available through Tuesday
to Friday to 93 per cent of the Canadian communities. A special packing and
shipping process ensures the product is protected for travel and maintains its
freshness and flavour.
