Boiled Lobster

Boiled Lobster

Most of the time simple does not equate to a feast except if its lobsters. This seafood is quite expensive in most places hence preparing this even with the simplest recipe can be equated as a feast.

Nothing can get simpler than this, boiling lobsters is as easy as placing live ones on boiling water and wait for 15 minutes. I know some are against using live lobsters that is why we dunk head first to the boiling water so they don’t suffer much. It is key to cook real fresh lobsters to get that best taste as their flesh start to deteriorate right after they die so good cooks and chefs do it fresh.

There are a lot of more humane ways if you are not convinced with this idea, some place them on the freezer for 10 minutes to numb them, some poke their heads with a sharp object to make them brain dead how about you do you have other ideas to do it humanely as possible?

    Best way to cook fresh seafood – can savour and truly enjoy the sweetness and taste unlike when drowned in gravies, sauces or soups.
