How to Prepare Lobster

There are a few methods of killing a lobster. One is to pierce its head, at the well-defined cross mark, with a strong sharp knife. This goes straight into the brain, and kills it instantly. The other method is given below.

- Tie the claws together with string or with a rubber band. If the lobster is alive you may prefer to place it in the freezer for 5-10 minutes prior to cooking, where it will quietly fall asleep.

- Place the lobster, dead or alive, in a large pan of salted with flavoring vegetables, if liked, and slowly bring to the boil. Cover with a lid and simmer for 15-20 minutes until the dark shell turns bright red.

- Leave the lobster to cool in the cooking liquid.

- Twist off the claws and remove the legs. Using shellfish crackers, or a hammer, crack the claws and pull out the meat.

- Cut away the thin under shell of the tail section using sharp scissors, and carefully pull out the flesh.

- Place the lobster tail on a board and cut in half along its length with a sharp knife. Remove the thin grey vein of intestine running along its length.

- Scrape out the red coral (if present) and reserve.

- If liked, add the liver to the flesh. This is the green-grey flesh near the head, and is tasty.

- Carefully lift out the bony part of the head and break it into pieces. Using a lobster pick or skewer, pick out the flesh and any remaining liver and roe.

- Pull away the grey spongy gills and stomach sac from the top of the head and discard.

- Wash the shell and dry well. This method of preparation means that both the head and tail sections of the lobster may be used to hold and serve the meat.
