Live Lobster

I put this in tonights dinner thread, but thought I'd include it here too.

Today is our 4th wedding anniversary so we're having a special dinner.
When we were in New England a few weeks ago we fell in love with northeast lobster so we ordered a couple of 3 pounders to be delivered live to us this morning by way of FedX. All that's left now is the killin' and the eaten'....... All tips from lobster experts welcomed!!

Where did you get them from? I use Main Lobster Direct when I'm in the mood, or for surprise presents.
Live lobster is cool and a nice treat, but my heart will always be with the tails.

The online place is http://thelobsterguy.com Pac. I think I like the claw meat just as much, if not more than the tail.

One pound of clarified butter sounds about right.

Happy Anniversary, Kayelle!

Yes indeed. I used to order gifts for folks from a similar company, always much beloved!

Congrats!

I have no advice for you.

I enjoy lobster rolls and lobster stew.

I'm afraid if someone gave me a live lobster I would probably name it and end up with a new pet.

Lol! I had a friend who did just that, he and a buddy bought a couple at a restaurant, said they would take them "to go", then put them on a string, and walked them down the street!
