Steaming a Lobster is Easiest

Steaming lobster is certainly the easiest way to cook lobster and a great way to enjoy the flavor of a fresh live lobster. The meat of a steamed lobster also easily pulls away from the shell when cracked, making steaming an especially easy way to eat--as well as to cook--a fresh lobster!

How do you do it?

Seawater! Is it best to steam a fresh lobster in seawater, but if that is not available, salted water works just fine. Add about two tablespoons of table salt to about 2 inches of water (Yes, a lot of added salt and not a lot of water, but it is necessary to prepare the best tasting lobster meat!)
