My dogs are spoiled. Fact.
I know it, they know it, everyone knows it.
They’re so spoiled that they get lobster on Labor day-
well, they got to share lobster with us and, needless to say, they loved it.
Here’s the proof:
Now, the How To:
Bring a very large pot of water to a full rolling boil. I mean, make sure that baby is hot, otherwise you’re just cruel. Well, more cruel. There’s no getting around this, boiling, grilling, splitting, whatever way you prepare it, lobster cuisine ain’t pretty. It makes you feel bad. Well, it makes me feel bad, anyway. But, the good news is, only 7 or so short minutes later, you’ll feel oh so good! Anyway, I digress-
Back to the How To:
- Bring large pot of salty water to boil.
Don’t be stingy with the salt, think salt water from the ocean salty. In fact, if you can get your hands on some sea water, use that to cook your crustaceans. Seriously.
- Quickly plunge the lobster into the pot of boiling water, face first.
I know, I know – it’s cruel, you’re heartless, lobster killer! Get over it!
- When the water comes back to a boil, start timing. Only 7 minutes.
In the meantime, melt yourself some butter for the second plunge – the plunge of tender, succulent lobster meat into golden, sweet, liquid butter.
Savor your Atlantic bounty. Oh, and share with your dogs!
