|Yeah, I know it's not ground-breaking but, man, plain ol' steamed lobster is deeeeeeeelicious and this was my first spiny lobster so I wanted to do it right. A tablespoon of sea salt, 1/2 cup of white wine, about 2in of water at the bottom of your pot. Get your boil going and then steam the whole lobster for 15-20 min (depending on size, but as with any lobster, don't overcook). Grab some hand towels and carefully twist off the tail (the shell and innards are hot!), cut shell down the middle, and remove vein that runs through. Don't forget to break off those legs or to grab the meat that might be stuck on the carapace! Serve with warm butter.
