Perfectly Steamed Lobster

Perfectly Steamed Lobster

Buy perky, energetic lobsters; they should be active and extend their claws upwards when lifted.

 
 

Ingredients

2 SERVINGS

2 1 1/2-lb. live lobsters

Unsalted butter, melted (for serving)

 

Preparation

Step 1

Bring 2″ water to a simmer in a large stockpot. Add two 1 1/2-lb. live lobsters (yes, alive) and quickly cover pot—walk away if you need to. Steam lobsters until shells are bright red and meat is cooked through, 8–10 minutes. Remove from pot with tongs and let cool 5 minutes before cracking. Serve with melted unsalted butter.
