My Easy Lobster

 

Often times people ask me how I make my steamed/boiled lobster. I always tell them that it is an easy process and everyone always looks at me a little blown away. I say it only takes 20 minutes or less depending on the size of the lobster and they always say,  “Tell me how?”.  So here goes.

Things needed: 

1 live lobster

1/4 teaspoon Old bay seasoning

1 tablespoon Butter

1/4-1/2 Lemon

1/8 teaspoon Chef Gone Mad Smoked Garlic & Herb Seasoning

Adobo Seasoning ( 2 shakes)

Water (2-3 inches deep in the pot)

Steamer or Large Pot

The most fun part of making lobster for me is going to the market and picking a live one out of the tank.  I always go for the fiesty one or the one that is fighting everyone.

I feel like the more fiesty the lobster, the better they will taste. (Just my theory) 

Once I pick the lobster they box it up and I take it in the car for a ride home.   Most times you will hear the lobster making some type of noise in the box (either moving around or “blowing bubbles”), there is nothing alarming about this.

Once I get it home I get out my big pot.

I put about 3 inches of water in it and put it on the stove to boil. I sprinkle about 1/4-1/2 teaspoon of Old Bay seasoning. 1/8 teaspoon of Chef Gone Mad Garlic & Herb Seasoning and about 2 shakes of the Adobo seasoning into the water. I cut the lemon in quarters and add to the water.

Once the water is boiling I add the live lobster head first and then cover.

I let the lobster boil on high heat for about 15-20 minutes depending on the size of the lobster. Once it turns bright red I know that it is done.

I before I take the lobster out of the pot I sprinkle just a bit more Old Bay Seasoning over the top of the lobster.

Take it out of the pot, plate and serve. 

There you have it my simple lobster!

My Easy Lobster. All Done!

I should record myself doing this one day, it would be fun.  The most dramatic part for me is taking the live lobster from the box to the pot.
