Broil Live Lobster

Allow one good size lobster, 1 1/2 large live lobster per person. Learn more about what size lobsters to get.


  1. Put the lobster on its back and make a deep, sharp cut through the entire length of the body and tail with a heavy sharp-pointed knife or lobster shears.
  2. Spread open and remove the black like and the stomach. Crack the claw shells with a mallet.
  3. Place in a broiler, shell side down. Sprinkle with olive oil or melted butter. Broil slowly about 15-18 minutes or until the fresh is lightly browned.  Be careful not to overcook. Serve with melted butter.
