One of the items on my Christmas List 2009 were some Maine Lobsters. Those who know me know that I really like Maine lobsters. My favorite are the lobsters with the soft shell–the kind that you can tear apart with your bare hands.
On December 23rd, I received a box in the mail (about 10AM). I opened it up and there were two beautiful lobsters. I took them out and they were still kicking which means they were really fresh. Despite all the Christmas shopping I needed to do, I didn’t go out. Instead, I decided to play with my new gifts.
Part of the packing materials was a set of instructions on how to prepare the lobster to how to eat your lobster (along with a set of bibs). I quickly read through the instructions (RTFM) and proceeded with my new adventure. Calling it an adventure makes it sound like a complicated process.
Here’s what I did: I started to boil some water (not too much, I prefer steaming them). Added salt. Put in a teaspoon of Old Bay seasoning. Cut the rubber bands off the claws, and threw them in for 10-15 minutes. Then I made some clarified butter and sliced up some lemons.
I can see myself ordering from Simply Lobsters in the future.
Thanks for the tasty Christmas gift Auntie Ann!
