I learned this style of cooking from my mother-in-law. This boiled lobster recipe will also work with crawfish or shrimp. You can add as many lobsters as you want, but cook no more than two at a time.

  • Add lobsters and place a lid over the pot. Boil until shells are bright red and meat is opaque, about 15 minutes (depending on the size of your lobsters).

  • Remove lobsters from the pot and place them in a colander under cool running water to stop the cooking process.
