I love making this in the summer, as it feels so summery and fresh to me. I serve it on grilled country style bread instead of the typical hot dog bun.


How to cook a lobster: It’s so much easier than you think. If you can boil water then you can cook a lobster. Start with a live lobster. Fill a large pot with water, salt, a sliced lemon, and some fresh dill. Once the water is boiling, drop the lobster in head first. Cover the pot and boil for about 15 minutes (for an average-sized 1¼ lb lobster). It will be bright red and the tail will be curled. Take it out of the water. Do not rinse, but simply let it cool down to room temperature.
