If you love seafood, you must be a big fan of lobsters. Lobsters are best available in Maine. The Maine lobster is a true delicacy. The meat of these lobsters is flavorful and succulent. Lobsters can be prepared in various ways. However, you must remember, lobsters are best cooked when they’re alive. If you want you can steam live lobsters on the grill. Here’s what you need to do:
• Take an aluminum baking pan big enough to fit the amount of lobster you have bought.
• Take the seaweed and cover the bottom of the baking pan
• Add enough water to cover the seaweed
• Add a tablespoon of sea salt and shake to mix
• Lay the lobsters on the seaweed
• Seal the top of the baking tray with the aluminum foil and seal well.
Then, light the grill on high flame and plan the pan on it. After that, close the grill cover and cook for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes remove part of the foil and yank an antenna. If the antenna comes off easily and the lobsters are bright red, you’ll know they are done.
Another good way to cook live Maine lobsters is my boiling and then grilling them.
First make the grill ready by igniting the charcoal. In a large pot, take salted water and bring it to a boil. Then put in the lobsters, head first. Cook this for five minutes. Then, remove the lobsters from the water and immediately immerse it in a bowl of cold water. This stops the lobster from cooking further. Then, it’s time to clean the lobster. Cut it open lengthwise and remove the sand sacs and black vein. Brush it with butter and season it. Place the lobsters on the grill, flesh-side down. Grill them for five minutes each side or till the lobster meat turns opaque. Serve with some garlic butter.
Boiling followed by grilling is a relatively easy and healthy way of cooking the lobsters. Lobsters cooked like this are really tasty.
