How to Steam the Perfect Lobster
Fill a large pan with 1-2 inches of water, and bring it to a boil.
Place the lobster(s) in the pan*, and cover.
Keep the flame on high, and when it begins to steam, start your timer!
– 12-15 minutes for 1¼-1½ pounders
– 20 minutes for 1½-2 pounders
– 25 minutes for 2-3 pounders
*If this makes you squeamish, place the lobsters in the freezer for a minute to stun them before steaming! Or better yet, have them steamed for you at Nauset Fish and Lobster Pool!
