Boiling a lobster is not as hard as you might think. If you can boil a pot of water, then you can cook a live lobster! Follow these easy steps and you too will be enjoying some Sweet Maine Lobster on your dinner (or lunch!) plate!
It's important that you begin with a live lobster. If the lobster is already dead, it may not cook properly. Always make sure the lobster is alive and kicking. I always purchase my Maine lobster only on the day I plan to cook it.
Pick up Lobster and quickly place head first in boiling water.
(Looking for a more humane way to send your lobster off to
that great ocean in the sky? There are two humane methods recognized by the
Geneva Convention, click here to see them.)
|1 - 1 ¼ lb.||12 - 15 minutes|
|1 ¼ - 2 lb.||15 - 20 minutes|
|2-3 lb.||20 - 25 minutes|
|3-6 lb.||25 - 28 minutes|
This is not your ordinary lobster roll, no mayonnaise, no lettuce, no onion or celery, no fillers at all.
All you need is a fork to dip the pieces of lobster into the drawn butter until you get the lobster down to size of the hot dog roll... pure heaven!
