Those who love seafood must really like lobsters as they are considered to be the tastiest form of seafood. If not the tastiest, lobsters are extremely popular with gourmands all over the world.

However, there are many seafood enthusiasts who do not have time to buy fresh live lobsters and therefore settle for the frozen and packaged variety. It is a fact that nothing beats a good old live lobster. So if you are planning to cook a lobster meal, try your level best to buy fresh live lobsters from the market.

The most commonly asked question on the lips of most novice cooks is, ‘how to prepare live lobster?’ There are various methods that can be tried out with live lobsters. Here are the most common ways.

BOILING

This is probably the easiest way to cook a live lobster. First you will need to fill a pot with at least 4 pints or 2 liters of water and two tablespoons of salt. Then you have to bring it to a boil and drop in the live lobster, headfirst, and boil again with the lid on. Once the lobster is cooked through it can be served just like that with some melted butter on the side or it can be incorporated in any sort of dish.

STEAMING

Apparently, steaming the lobsters makes the lobster meat more succulent and tasty than boiling it. Steaming takes more time than boiling, but it’s worth the wait. Put a steaming rack in a pot and pour in water and salt. Boil the water and cover the pot with a lid. Once the water starts boiling take the lobster and place it on the steaming rack. Cover the pot again and boil the water. Cook till the meat is just right. Eat it freshly steamed with butter or incorporate the meat in a salad or exotic dish.

GRILLING

This is another great way of cooking your lobster. This is perfect for a family get-together or barbecue. Now for grilling you can use fresh live lobsters or packaged and frozen lobsters. If you are a careerist and do not have time to buy a fresh live lobster, grilling packaged lobster that has been bought online will do perfectly. First the lobster needs to be parboiled. Then make sure you clean it and season and marinate it properly before you put it on the grill. Grill the lobster till the meat is firm. Serve this as you please.

Lobsters served boiled, steamed or grilled taste absolutely superlative, it’s just that you have to know how to do it right.
