How to cook LIVE Maine Lobsters

Fill a large pot half to two-thirds full with water. Set your burner to high heat and bring water to a rolling boil. Add lobsters to the pot head first, making sure that they are completely submerged. Cover the pot tightly and return to a boil as quickly as possible. Once water is boiling again, cook the lobsters 10 minutes for the first pound and 3 additional minutes for each additional pound, i.e., cook a two-pound lobster for 13 minutes. When the antennae pull out easy, the lobsters are done. Serve with melted butter.

Times given are for hard-shelled lobsters; if cooking new shell lobsters, reduce boiling time by 3 minutes. Try adding a cup of white wine to the water before boiling to add a bit of flavor. The tail will curl under the body when the lobster is cooked.

To preserve the lifespan of your lobster it may be par cooked. Lobsters should be cooked for ONE HALF the allotted time depending on the pound size. The lobster can then go back into the refrigerator. The next day it should be cooked for the remainder of cooking time. You may also FULLY cook the lobster and return it to the refrigerator.
