Boiled Maine Lobster

Recipe by Aroostook
READY IN: 25mins
YIELD: 4 lobster




  • Bring to a roiling boil a large kettle of salted water.
  • Place lobsters in boiling water head first. Cover and cook for 15 minutes.
  • Remove and serve with melted butter.
  • HOW TO EAT: Twist off the claws. Crack each claw with a nut cracker.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • The small claws are excellent eating! The meat sucked out like like sipping through a straw!
