How to Cook a Lobster

  • Use salt water if possible, if not add lots of salt to your water.
  • You want to steam the lobster not boil it. Boiling will cause the meat to become tough.
  • Put about 2″ of water in pot.
  • Take the bands off the lobster and place in steaming water.
  • Let steam for 20-25 minutes or until the top feeler pulls out with ease.
  • Note: Make sure you cut the bands off before steaming, the bands left on will cause the meat to taste like rubber.
