Ingredients

4 portions
  • 4 lobsters, alive
  • salt, (the needed)
  • 1 deep pot, (to cook the 4 lobsters)
  • Water
  • butter, melted cold
  • 2 lemons, to the half
  • lobster clamps

Preparation

Put your live lobsters in the refrigerator (inside their bags in which I buy them) as soon as possible to keep them fresh.
Put to heat a deep pot with 2 cm. of water. Add salt. The water must know "sea water", very salty. Cover the pot and wait for it to boil.
Once the water is boiling, put the lobsters one at a time. Cover the pot and once it is boiling again, cook the lobsters according to their weight.
For lobsters between 1 lbs and 1 1/2 lbs. Cook 10-12 minutes. Lobsters from 1 1/2 to 2 lbs. cook between 13-14 minutes. Lobsters between 2 and 3 lbs. Cook 16-18 minutes. Lobsters between 3 and 4 lbs. Cook between 20-22 minutes.

PRESENTATION

Serve with melted butter and lemons cut in half. Put a deep dish in the center so that the husks are put on.

TIPS

The lobsters should be strong red (as in the photo) when they are cooked. The tails must be curved and the meat must be firm. Accompany this dish with a Chardonnay wine.
