Where Can You Buy Lobster?

Most places that sell live seafood can and will cook your lobster for you. If you live on the East coast, all the grocery stores do it for a small fee. If you go to Whole Foods, they often sell already cooked lobster tails in the case for you to buy. Fresh lobster tails can be poached in simmering water for 6-8 minutes. The tails will turn bright red and curl up when they are cooked.

How to Cook Lobster for Gordon Ramsay Lobster Pasta Recipe?

  • Bring a large pot of water to a boil.
  • Reduce the heat to a soft boil and stir in a few tablespoons of kosher sea salt.
  • Set a timer for 6-8 minutes and drop the lobster tails into the water one at a time.
  • After the tails are cooked, carefully remove them from the water with tongs.
  • You need to run cold water over the cooked lobster tails as soon as possible to stop them from cooking.
  • Remove the shell and use it as needed.

How To Easily Remove Lobster Meat?

When removing lobster meat, think of it as a large shrimp or prawn. Use scissors to cut through the bottom, then pull the shell off and release the lobster meat.

In case you get a whole lobster, you can remove the meat from the claws and the knuckles as well. Youtube is your friend – there are so many videos on how to do this.

Pro tip: don’t throw away the shells. Simply cover the shells with water and simmer, covered, for 2 hours on low or in a crockpot, cover with water and a lid, and cook on high. This lobster stock will give any soup a deep seafood flavor.
