Lobster (Shelling and Boiling).

http://www.lobsterdinner.ca


Lobster is often sold cooked, but it's better to buy them live and cook them yourself. The most humane way to kill a live lobster is to place the lobster in a plastic bag in the freezer for two hours (which will make it unconscious), then to immediately place it in boiling water. Alternatively, using a very sharp knife, cut through the nerve centres just behind the head and at the juction of the body and the tail.


The Lobster Trap Company wholesales Live Lobster and Fresh Seafood from the pristine waters of Atlantic Canada and New England. The Lobster Trap Company is well known for it's quality, quantity, consistency, dependability, and price.


Live lobsters can live up to 48 hours after you've purchased them provided they are kept cold and their gills are kept moist. They should be stored in open containers in the refrigerator, provided they are kept moist with seaweed, or seawater dampened towels or newspaper. Do NOT immerse lobsters in water or place on ice in an airtight container as they will suffocate and die.


Live lobsters are usually available year-round. Fishing regulations vary from state to state in the U.S., and district to district in Canada. In Maine, lobstermen can fish year round. However, lobsters are less active as water temperature drops. Live lobsters can ... be held in tidal pounds or tank storage, to be made available when the catch is slower.


If you don't plan to cook your live lobster as soon as you get home, it will keep for 24 hours in a refrigerator or cooler (33 to 40 degrees Fahrenheit). Keep it moist with seaweed, wet paper towels or wet newspaper. Don't immerse your lobster in ice or water, as they can suffocate.


To steam live lobster: Fill pot so that water comes up sides about two inches. Add 2 tablespoons salt. Bring the water to a rolling boil, and put in lobsters, one at a time. Steaming takes a little longer - steam lobster 18 minutes for a 1 to 1 1/4-pound hard-shell lobster and 20 minutes for a 1 1/2-pound hard-shell lobster. Again, the soft shell lobster takes less time - reduce cooking time by 3
