fancy recipe to steam 2 lobsters
Use a very large pot!
1 tablespoon salt per 1 quart water added
2 2-pound Captain Don's lobsters
1 medium onion, rough chopped (approximately 3/4 inch square )
2 stalks celery, rough chopped
1 tsp cracked peppercorns
2 bay leaves
whole branches of fresh dill (if no dill, substitute tarragon or parsley)
-Cover vegetables and seasonings with 1 1/2 inches of water.
-Bring to a boil and add the steamer basket with the lobsters in it and cover tightly.
-Cook for 15 minutes, making sure there's still enough water in the bottom of the pot. If you do add more water, it is not necessary to add more salt, because only the water evaporates.
-Check for doneness with one of the small legs. Then, remove from the pot and crack the lobster and enjoy! by Chef Laura, http://www.cooking-lobster.com/index.html
