How to Cook Live New England Lobsters
Fill a large pot two thirds full with water. Add 1/2 cup of salt per gallon of water and bring to a boil.
Place the lobster into the boiling water head first, making sure that it is completely submerged.
Cover the pot and return to boil.
Cook lobster according to size: 10 minutes for the first pound and 3 additional minutes for for each additional pound.
You will know that the lobster is fully cooked when the lobster is bright red and when the antennae pull out easily.
For a Cape Cod feast, serve lobster with melted butter and sweet native corn on the cob.
