Atlantic lobster wasn’t always recognized as a delicacy. Back in the early days, lobsters used to be crushed and used as fertilizer and as a base for roads. They were so plentiful that they were picked up off the shores and were known as a poor man’s food. Now-a-days, eating Atlantic or Maine lobsters is the height of fine dining, and is served in most of the world's finest restaurants.

Atlantic lobsters are harvested by licensed fisherman from the cold water, eastern shores of North America from Newfoundland to the north-eastern United States.
Many families have been fishing lobster for many generations with fleets and licenses being passed down. It has been a way of life on the East Coast for well over 100 years.

Cooking lobster is pretty easy if you know how. While there are many ways to cook lobsters, from baking to grilling, we will cover two of the most popular ways to prepare lobsters. First, we will teach you how to steam a lobster: Steaming lobster is actually preferred over boiling as it tends to tenderize the lobster meat especially for larger lobsters. Start off with a large stock or lobster pot and cover the bottom with 2" of generously salted water (ideally, sea salt). Bring water to a boil, place the lobster in head first and cover. The cooking times for steamed lobster are at right.
Lobster Weight Cooking Time
1-1.25 lbs. 10-12 minutes
1.25 - 2 lbs. 12-18 minutes
2 - 3 lbs. 18-25 minutes
3 - 6 lbs. 25-40 minutes
6 - 7 lbs. 40-60 minutes
8 lbs. & over 7 minutes per pound
If you wish to boil the lobster, fill the lobster pot just over half way, salt liberally, and bring to a boil. Place the lobster in the pot one at a time and cover. Follow the cooking times above but add a couple of minutes per pound.

Growing up, the way we ate lobster was to cover our kitchen table with old newspaper, drain the water from the lobster pot and then dump all of the lobster in the middle of the table. Probably not the delicate but it is the most traditional way, and the most fun! Melt some butter into a large bowl, crack open your lobster with the proper utensils and start enjoying.
