Florida Seafood Recipe

Steamed Lobster

(Photo Below)
2 1-pound whole uncooked lobsters, fresh or frozen
3 tablespoons salt
  clarified butter

Thaw lobsters if frozen. In a 6-quart saucepan, bring 3 quarts of water and salt to a boil. Place lobsters in boiling water; cover and return to boiling point. Reduce heat; simmer 12-15 minutes. Larger lobsters will take a little more cooking time. Drain; rinse with cold water for 1-2 minutes. Split and clean lobsters. Serve with clarified butter.

2 servings

Look for "Fresh from Florida" ingredients at your grocery store.
