to cook and eat a lobster
There are a few ways to cook a
lobster. We just told you about steaming them on the beach. If you
choose to cook them at home follow the directions listed below. Lobsters
must be alive and kicking right before you cook them. You'll find
your lobsters (hopefully) have their claws bound in rubber bands.
Just go head and leave those on until they are, done.
Boil water in a large pot, but use
only as much water as you'll need to cover the lobsters. Immerse
lobster(s) head first into the pot when the water is at full boil. (No, they don't
scream.) Boil for approximately 8 minutes per pound of lobster.
The shell will turn a bright red.
Getting to the meat is really
pretty easy, but messy. Use a nutcracker to crack claws open at
the widest point. Use cocktail forks to get lobster meat out of
the nooks and crannies. Bend the tail backward and you should be
able to slide the delicious delicacy out in one tempting piece.
Drawn butter and lemon and...yum!
