(3 qts. water per every 2 pounds of lobster)
, roughly chopped in quarters
tablespoon Old Bay Seasoning
, smashed (lightly hit to open the clove a bit)
Fill pot with water to match pounds of lobster. (3 qts. per 2 pounds lobster).
Add seasonings, vegetable, and garlic.
Bring water to rolling boil.
Add live lobsters one at a time (if more then one), starting to time immediately. (10 minutes per pound for first pound of lobster, 1 minute per pound thereafter = 2 pound lobster= 12 minutes).
Do not cover.
Stir lobster half-way through cooking time.
Let lobster rest for a full five minutes to allow the meat to absorb the moisture from the shell.
Carefully remove and grab a bib.
