3 Awesome Seafood Recipes For Live Lobster - Online Article

Talking   about lobsters, it gives many of us a scary feeling. The lobster with   its eye’s protruding out gives our heart a shiver. However, a tasty   lobster is the one which is alive. Therefore to get the divine taste of a   live lobster, we must become its assassin. If we are able to remove the   aversion, fear and guilt, then a bite from a giant lobster will surely   set aside all the considerations.

The easiest way to kill a lobster is to either drop it in boiling water or plunge a knife at its back.

Here are three awesome seafood recipes of live lobster:

Recipe 1: Boiled lobster

A   pound of lobster gives around 2 cups of meat. Take a large kettle or a   pot and put 2 ½ quarts of water per lobster. Add two to four table spoon   of salt to that water. When the water starts boiling, plunge one   lobster at a time, head first into that kettle. After all the live   lobsters have made the kettle their home, lower the heat, cover the   kettle and shimmer. If the lobsters are 1 to 1 ¼ pound hard shelled,   then allow 15 minutes and if the lobsters weigh 1 ½ to 2 pounds, allow   20 minutes of boiling time. If the lobsters are of soft shell, they cook   more rapidly. Therefore in case of soft shell lobsters, the looking   time is at least 3 minutes lesser. Once the boiling is done, test   whether the lobsters are ready by pulling the antenna of a lobster. If   it comes out easily, the lobster is done.

Recipe 2 steamed live lobster

Fill   a large pot of water. Add 2 table spoons of salt. Put in all the   lobsters, one at a time, once the water comes to a rolling boil.   Steaming takes more time than boiling. For 1 ¼ pound hard shell lobster,   it takes around 18 to 20 minutes. For a lobster of 1 ½ pound, it takes   around 20 to 25 minutes for steaming. In case of soft shell live   lobsters, the steaming time is again 3 minutes lesser than that of hard   shell live lobsters.

Recipe 3 White lobster chili

- 2 small "chicken" lobsters
  - 2 onion
  - 2 tbsp olive oil

- 2 cups great northern beans
  - 1 tsp ground toasted cumin

- 4 stalks celery
  - 2 carrot

- 1 bay leaf
  - 1/2 cup heavy cream
  - 1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro

- 2 tablespoons chili powder
  - 2 cloves garlic
  - salt
  - cracked pepper

Dice   an onion, celery and the carrot into large pieces. Place these in a   large pot along with bay leaf, pepper and 3 quarts of water. Bring the   entire ingredients to boil. Now put the live lobsters into a pot and   boil it for 15 minutes. Once the boiling is done, strain the broth and   keep it aside.

Dice   another onion finely along with celery and the carrot. Heat olive oil   in a pan and sauté the onion, celery and the carrot until it turns   brown. Add garlic and sauté some more.

Add   water, chili powder, cumin and white beans and cook for the next 45   minutes. Now remove the shells from the lobsters’ bodies and chop them   roughly. Once that is done, add them to the soup. Finish dressing the   soup with cream and cilantro. Then season the soup with salt and paper. Seafood recipes are ready to serve.
