RE: Still cooking lobster
When I was working in Maine, we always steamed the lobsters. In recent preparations for a trip to Cape Cod, I found a restaurant out there that advertised that their lobsters, cooked to order, were always boiled-never steamed, which led me to wonder if boiling really is better. I have been told the best way to cook lobster was in boiling water that had been salted to the point of seawater saltiness. I really hate overly salty food, and can't afford to destroy a lobster, so I have not tried it yet.
