Great Recipes

Folks just can’t get enough of Salty’s – so here are some of our favourites you can try at home...

How to Cook a Lobster

Note: As a general rule of thumb, when the antennae pull out easily,
the lobsters are done.

How To Cook A Lobster

The two most popular ways to cook lobsters are Steaming and Boiling. First, we would like to dispel a common myth: Lobsters do not scream when you put them into boiling water. The sound you hear is air whistling out of the shell as it expands due to the heat.

Steaming lobster:

1. Put about 2-inches of sea water (or if sea water is not available, add 2 tablespoons of salt for each quart of water) in the bottom of a large kettle. Some cooks also place a steaming rack large enough to hold the lobsters above the water, in the bottom. Bring the water to a rolling boil.

2. Put in the live lobsters, one at a time, grasping just behind the claws. Let the water boil again and begin timing. Allow 18 minutes for a 1 to 1 1/4-pound hard-shell lobster, and 20 minutes for a 1 1/2-pound hard-shell lobster. If the lobster has a soft-shell, reduce the cooking time by 3 minutes.

Boiling Lobster:

1. Fill a large kettle 3/4 full of sea water. If sea water is not available, add 2 tablespoons of salt for each quart of water. A good rule of thumb is to allow 2 1/2-quarts of water for each lobster. Bring the water to a boil.

2. Put in the live lobsters, one at a time, and let the water boil again. Lower the heat, cover the kettle, and simmer for about 15 minutes for 1 to 1 1/4-pound hard-shell lobsters, and about 20 minutes for 1 1/2 to 2-pound hard-shell lobsters. Like with steaming, soft-shell lobsters take a little less time to cook, so reduce the cooking time by 3 minutes.

How To Eat A Lobster

Now, this is what you have been waiting for, eating a Lobster. There is nothing that matches its taste. Remember, lots of napkins!

  1. Twist off the claws.
  2. Crack each claw with a nut cracker.
  3. Separate the tail piece from the body.
  4. Bend back and break the flippers off the tail piece.
  5. Insert a fork where the flippers have been broken off and push out the meat.
  6. Separate the back from the body.
  7. Open the remaining part of the body by cracking apart sideways. There is some good meat in this section.
  8. The small legs are excellent eating! The meat can be sucked out like sipping through a straw!
