Three Cooking Methods For Any Lobster Dinner 

Lobster is a popular and delicious seafood that can make any meal or occasion memorable. We have curated three different methods that are commonly used for preparing lobster. These methods are used to prepare a mouth-watering lobster dish that will impress and satisfy your cravings with a visit to Costas Inn

Steamed Lobster

Cooking steamed lobsters can be a simple and enjoyable process. It’s important to note that you don’t need to wait for the water to boil before adding your lobsters. Additionally, you can experiment with various seasonings and spices to enhance their flavor while steaming your lobsters. Remember that the cooking time will vary based on the size of your lobsters.

Grilled Lobster 

When it comes to preparing lobster, grilling it can take its flavors to the next level. Grilling gives it a charred and smoky flavor, enhancing its succulent taste. One of the most important things to do is to split the lobsters before grilling. This allows the flavors to penetrate deeply into the meat. Butter or olive oil coating is often used on both sides of the lobster to enhance the taste. Grilling the flesh side first and then flipping it over will give it an even cooked look. Grilled lobsters can help create a perfect seafood dinner that will tantalize your taste buds.

Boiled Lobster 

Boiling is a foolproof way to keep the meat fresh and juicy. Unlike other methods, such as grilling or baking, boiling doesn’t dry out the meat and ensures a tender texture. Additionally, boiling is a versatile cooking method that allows the lobster to marinate with any additional spices or herbs in the boiling water.
