Nothing can get simpler than this, boiled 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.



  • 2 medium sized live lobsters
  • 6 tsp salt
  • 1/3 cup melted butter
  • lemon wedges


  1. Prepare a stockpot filled with enough water to cook the lobster, add salt and bring to a boil. Once boiling place lobsters head first then close the lid and boil in high heat for 15 minutes or until its cooked and shells turn bright red.
  2. Remove lobsters from the boiling water then drain off excess liquid. Place in a serving platter served with butter and lemon wedges.
