- Put the lobster into the boiling water claws first. The entire lobster has to be submerged. Calculate 1 minute of cooking per 100 grams (3.5 US ounces).
- Real pros take control by – when the boiling is done – submerging the lobster in a container with ice water. Otherwise residual heat inside the shell will cause cooking to continue for a long time...
