With our time in Maine running out, we are trying to do the things we so enjoy one more time. At the top of the list is a lobster dinner, one of the easiest we prepare at home.
Luckily, my lobster guy is still bringing those tasty crustaceans in and when he knows I want a few of the day’s haul, he calls and in his wonderful Maine accent he says he’s on his way in and to meet him at the dock. Minutes later I have lobster that have been out of the water no more than a couple of hours. You just can’t beat seafood that fresh!
We steam the lobster in about 2″ of water, salted and with a little seaweed, for approximately 18 minutes. When it is ready, the hubby cracks the claws, slits the back and drains the water from the shell which eliminates most of the challenge of eating a lobster. (Check out the how to here.)
If there is room for dessert, our favorite is something made with lemon and nothing beats my friend Pam’s lemon pie. She generously shared the recipe which is posted here. Even if you can’t have the lobster dinner, do try the pie. You’ll be glad you did!
