If you catch, are gifted or purchase live lobster you MUST drown them first so they die. You can do this by placing them in freshwater for 30 minutes.
- Bring your cooking water to the boil and add 2 cups of salt
- Add your lobster to the water
- When the water returns to the boil, cook the lobster according to weight – For 500g, boil for 18 minutes. For every 100g extra, cook for a further two minutes
- Remove the lobster and place it in ice cold water to stop the cooking process
