Lobster for Christmas! John and I had two giant lobsters for our holiday meal together before we head off for travel.
lobsters (we had two 2.5 lobsters), live
Bring water to boil in a giant pot, so that lobsters will be covered. Add in lobsters head first (you can numb them first in the freezer if you like). Bring back to a boil,and then lower to a simmer.
Once at simmer, cook for 5 minutes and then 3 minutes per additional pound of lobster. Drain and serve with melted butter.
