Directions

  1. Bring to a roiling boil a large kettle of salted water.
  2. Place lobsters in boiling water head first. Cover and cook for 15 minutes.
  3. Remove and serve with melted butter.
  4. HOW TO EAT: Twist off the claws. Crack each claw with a nut cracker.
  5. Separate the tail piece from the body. Bend back and break the flippers off the tail piece. Insert a fork where the flippers have been broken off and push out the meat.
  6. Separate the back from the body. Open the remaining part of the body by cracking apart sideways. There is some good meat in this section.
  7. The small claws are excellent eating! The meat sucked out like like sipping through a straw!
