You don’t have to wait for a special occasion to cook and serve lobster. You can cook anytime you feel like it. Contrary to what most people think, prepping lobster isn’t rocket science. This recipe, in fact, is pretty simple and straightforward. It’s lobster and mango with parsley pollen.
Here’s an example of how to boil a whole lobster. Fill a pot with water. Add two tablespoons of salt for each quart of water. Bring to a boil. Submerge the lobster head first. Cover the pot. A pound of lobster cooks for about 15 minutes. You’ll know it’s cooked when the shell has become red. Remove the lobster from the pot and let it cool on a plate.
When buying lobsters make sure that you don’t pick those that don’t move or those have black marks or holes on the shell.
