How to Cook

Planning to host guests for a seafood party? Here’s a quick method to make properly cooked lobsters in your kitchen:

  • Use a meat thermometer and insert it into the centre of the thickest portion of the lobster’s body. If the lobster reaches 80°C (180°F), then it is properly cooked.

  • You can choose from traditional boiled, steamed, broiled and grilled cooking methods.

  • Be careful not to overcook the lobster.

  • Reheat cooked lobster by placing it in boiling water

  • Check if your lobster is undercooked by checking for a thick translucent liquid inside its body

  • If undercooked, return it to the boiling pot until it reaches the desired temperature

  • Fully cooked lobster appears white with a red shell
