Mailing Lobsters – Simply Lobsters

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!
