Boiled Lobster

I'll never forget the first time I had my first broiled lobster.  It was one of my first dates . . . he ordered lobster and I thought I would order the same thing.

When the waiter presented us with our meal, he also handed us nut crackers and bibs.  I didn't have the slightest idea what to do with this whole lobster sitting in front of me.

So I watched my date eat his lobster and tried to do what he did.  I made such a mess!

Needless to say, I never ordered a lobster at a restaurant again, but I do love to make a mess with a lobster in the comfort of my home.

The recipe comes from my personal collection.


3 gallons water
2 large onions, quartered
10 cloves garlic, peeled and cut in half
2 lemons, quartered
2 oranges, quartered
5 stalks celery, quartered
4 tablespoons black pepper
4 tablespoons seasoned salt
6 fresh jalapeno peppers
2 fresh live lobsters


Pour the water into a large pot and add the onions,
garlic, lemons, oranges, celery, black pepper, seasoned salt
and jalapeno peppers.

Bring to a full rolling boil and boil for 20 minutes.

Add the lobsters and place a lid over the pot.
Boil for 15 minutes.

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