How to Steam Lobster Jul 21st 2014, 10:00, by Lori Lange
If you spot a live lobster at the market, don’t be afraid… they’re easy to cook! > How to Steam Lobster
Every summer on our beach vacation to Massachusetts, we eat lobster rolls like crazy (duh), but we always eat whole lobsters at least once. Sure, you can order lobster at a restaurant for a gazillion dollars, or you can find them on sale at a seaside market (or buy them cheaper on the docks as the fishermen come in!) Cooking them at home is a much more affordable option, and it’s super easy to do.
Yeah, here’s me getting wild and crazy with some live lobster. They rubber-band the pinchers so you’re totally safe from attack. I’ll admit that I used to be completely freaked out by the idea of cooking these things while they’re still alive. It’s freaky, and it seems kind of mean, right? Well, I’ve gotten to the point where I’ve done it so many times now that it doesn’t really bother me much anymore. You’ve gotta eat. And lobster is something that is (um… really good) to eat in my book.
First you need to make sure you have a big pot with a steamer insert and a lid. I include specifics on size of pot needed for how many lobsters in the recipe below.
