Alright, welcome to Part 2 of the special Foodie Friday: Boston Edition. Today we’re going to share with you how to steam a live lobster! We love seafood, and although cooking lobster seemed a little bit intimidating the first time, it’s really pretty easy and is quickly becoming a favorite of ours.
Things you’ll need:
A large pot
Fill pot so that water comes up the sides about two inches. Add 2 tablespoons of sea salt for each quart of water. Bring water to a rolling boil and put lobsters in one at a time, head first.
Cover tightly, return to a boil as quickly as possible and start counting the time. 8 minutes per pound for the first pound. Add 3 minutes for each additional pound.
Once the time is up, promptly take lobster out with tongs…you don’t want to overcook it ;). Serve with garlic butter and enjoy! Don’t forget to check back for Part 3 on Friday…Cod Fish Balls!
We’ll be posting more from our trip to Boston and NYC soon, but since this post is on the shorter side, I thought I’d throw in a little sneak peek from Boston. It’s such a beautiful and interesting city…I can’t wait to share more!
