How to Boil Live Lobsters

Great Deal!  Loblaws and Hartmans has live market lobsters for the low price of $5.99 lb /13.21/kg. This is savings of over $5 lb.  They weight 1 – 1.5 lbs each.

How to Cook a live Lobster:

  • Bring 2 litres of water per pound of lobster to a rolling boil in a very large pot.
  • Add in 1-2 tbsp. of sea salt
  • Drop in the lobsters, one at a time, headfirst into the water.
  • Cover and steam

Timing: 1 lb. = 12-15 min; 1.5 lbs. = 15-20 min; 2-3 lbs. = 20-25 min
