Recipe Information
How to cook raw lobster

Caroline, from New Zealand

Serves/Makes:1 (don't let anyone else share

  • 1 frozen lobster tail
  • Newspaper
  • Serviettes
  • Your favourite seafood sauce
  • Lemon
  • Good appetite!
  • Defrost lobster tail in fridge.
  • In a large pot boil some unsalted water.
  • Drop whole lobster tail into water and boil for no longer than 15 minutes.
  • Remove from water and cool.
  • While your lobster is cooling place generous amounts of newspaper over table, place plenty of serviettes on to table, pour your favourite seafood sauce into a bowl, and cut a lemon in half.
  • Once lobster has cooled put it onto a plate, sit down at the table, pull the lobster meat from the shell, dip meat into your favourite seafood sauce, drizzle over a little lemon and pop into your mouth - yum!
  • You should receive an amazing taste sensation.
  • Carry on until lobster is gone, and don't share it with anyone else!
This really is the best way to eat lobster. If you can get hold of a whole, fresh lobster then cook it the same way - but for around 20 minutes (no longer than half an hour).
