How to cook a boiled lobster: A staple in every clambake 0

Did you ever find yourself wondering how to cook one of those delicious lobsters you had at a Woodman’s clambake? Leave the fried clams and battered onion rings to us and cook your very own boiled lobster at home!

Boiled Lobster- one of life’s simplest pleasures!

And cooking it is easier than you might think… if you don’t mind the live lobster!!

It must be alive! A lobster is alive as long as it is moving its legs, tail, or antennae.

For Boiled Lobster at Home – Follow these simple steps:

1. Add 1 teaspoon salt for every quart of water.

2. Bring water to a rapid boil and plunge lobster head-first into water.

3. Return to a boil and cook for anywhere between 5- 15 min.

For 1 pound: 5 minutes
1 1/8 pounds: 6 minutes
1 1/4 pounds: 8 minutes
1 1/2 to 2 pounds: 8 to 10 minutes
more than 2 pounds : 12 minutes

4. Remove lobster and serve with melted butter, lemon wedges, lobster crackers and lots and lots of napkins.

It’s that simple. And it’s deliciously New England.
