Cooked Lobsters

Author: Canadian Living

Either remove the meat and add it back to the finished dish or serve still in the shell with crackers and lobster forks, as Tania does.

  • Portion size 3 servings

Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons salt
  • 3 (1 to 2 lb/500g to 1kg each) lobster

Method

In large deep pot, bring enough water to completely cover lobsters, lemon juice and salt to boil. Grasp back of each lobster; plunge headfirst into water. Cover and return to boil. Reduce heat and simmer until lobster is bright red and small leg comes away easily when twisted, 10 to 15 minutes.

Drain and let cool for about 10 minutes. Separate tail and claws; crack shells slightly but leave on.
