Posted on May 22nd, 2014 by Marissa Miller

This Saturday, May 24th is Lobsterfest at Sendik’s.  You’re able to purchase 2 lobsters, cooked or fresh, for only $25! We will be celebrating Lobsterfest at our house this weekend. And if you haven’t made lobster before, here are Sendik’s preparation instructions.

How to Boil a Lobster

1. Fill a large pot half to two-thirds full with salted water (1 tbsp salt per quart).
2. Set your burner to high heat and bring water to a rolling boil.
3. Add lobsters to the pot headfirst, making sure that they are completely submerged.
4. Cover the pot tightly and return to a boil as quickly as possible.
5. Once water is boiling again, cook the lobsters 10 minutes for the first pound and 3 additional minutes for each additional pound, i.e., cook a two-pound lobster for 13 minutes.
6. When the antennae pull out easy, the lobsters are done.
7. Serve with melted butter.
