If you are staying in one of our cottages, you may have noticed a deep pot in the kitchen, which is used to cook lobsters.

If you’ve decided to cook the lobster yourself, here are a few tips:

  1. You don’t need to fill the whole pot with water, just a couple inches on the bottom. You are steaming the lobsters so to submerge them is unnecessary. Also, this will save you time on heating the water.
  2. You can cook it in salted water, sea water, or water with seaweed in it. All impart a slightly salty taste that compliments the meat well.
  3. You know when the lobster is done when you pull on the feeler and it snaps off, about six minutes.

The good thing about lobster is it’s hard to overcook and you don’t need any fancy techniques: just good lobsters, a pot to hold them, and some claw crackers.

Enjoy your lobsters!
