Recipe: Cooking Instructions
Place a large cooking pot filled with water with room to add the Lobsters and bring the water to a strong boil first.
Add some salt to the water
• Once the water has come to a strong boil, place your lobsters head first into the pot. Cover the pot immediately once all the lobsters are in the pot. Please be careful not to burn yourself if the lobster’s tails splash the water a bit.
• Start timing the cooking of your lobsters once you place your lobsters in the water and you’ve put the cover on your pot (see cooking time below).
