Re: Lobster

Steam or boil then dip in butter...simply heaven. Our favorite is the Bahamian lobster. We bought 10 from a local for $7.

I like the ones Delmarrey posted !
20' deep? I'm not much of a free diver. Could you arrange for some to hang out near our boat in about 7' of water?

Re: Lobster

Build a fire on the beach,put lobster on a stick and put stick in the ground around the fire...Lobster on a stick! or just throw them on top of the hot coals and turn once ...Or put about two inchs of water in a pot and then put in a dish towel then the lobster then another dish towel,better than boiled!

Re: Lobster

You are mostly talking about Langouste or crayfish or rock lobsters. In my book, a "lobster" has claws with meat in them. Lobsters are found from LI Sound up through Canada's atlantic coast. They do not live anywhere else.

I've eaten lobster many ways: baked stuffed, lobster rolls, lobster stew, broiled, grilled and served with fancy sauces.

But the best way to cook a lobster is simply to boil it, serve with drawn butter. Boiling does not impair the delicate flavor of the meat.

Real lobsters are fascinating creatures. They can't be farmed like langouste.

If Lobsters are dropped, one at a time, headfirst into rapidly boiling water, they die virtually instantly - before they can release any fear/pain induced adrenalin.

Any movement, in the pot, is the result of a postmortem release of muscle energy. Lobsters may make a high-pitched sound when they are boiled. Although it sounds like they are crying, it is actually the result of gases being released under their shells.
THAT's LOBSTER SCREAMS YOU ARE HEARING!

Re: Lobster

I would never BOIL a lobster!!!! You put 1/2 to 3/4 inch water in the bottom of the pan!! bring water to a boil!!!!!(for steam) Make sure the rubber bands are removed from claws, then put bugs in pan, steam for about 20 mins. no longer unless big over 2 1/2 lbs-3 lbs. soft and semi soft shells are more succulent, sweeter, than hard shell. Note you may get a very little more meat in hards, but the flavor is far better in the others and your not paying for hard shell weight, or using a hammer to open up a hard. and yes don't forget the drawn butter.
I'm not saying, just saying!!!! DON'T ASK ME WHY!!! I guess because WIFIE does this for a living and people come fro mall over the U.S. or order because they been to where she works to0 get more!!!!!!!! ENJOY!!!! Oh by the way bugs/ lobsters are part of the spider ( can't remember how to spell scientific name) family!!!! IE BUGS

Re: Lobster

Nope, I do it exactly as GordMay says. Boil the water, put the lobster in head first, wait eight minutes and enjoy.
