There are several ways of cooking lobster, however the simplest and most common method is to boil or steam it.
Lobster must be cooked in salty water, so that the flavour of the meat is maintained, and sea water is preferred if available.
Do not panic if sea water is not an option for you, as salted tap water will be fine.
You may add a mixture of wine, vegetables and herbs to the water in order to give the lobster meat more flavour. The residual liquid may also be used to make a delicious stock or sauce. Ingredients that can be added include white wine, pepper, parsley
, celery, onions, carrots, or bay leaves
Many lobster lovers say that lobster is best eaten whole and steamed.
However, you can also cook your lobster and use the meat to make sandwiches, salads
, soups, risottos and a large number of other varied dishes.
