Cooking Spiny Lobster for Lunch

Everybody loves lobster!  

My mom, dad, sister and brother went to SM Centris at about 5:30 in the morning. They bought  8 spiny lobsters. Here’s how I cooked spiny lobster with lemon butter sauce. 


8 spiny lobsters (1 lb. each) , pot of water

Lemon juice

2 lemon wedges for plating if needed

1/4 stick of butter

Step 1: Wash the lobster.

( You may detach the head from the tail then remove the lobster vein using the lobster antenna.)

Step 2: Boil a pot of water with 1 tbsp. rock salt.

Step 3: Put lobster in boiling water slowly. Heads first then tail.

Step 4: Cook for 10 mins (per pound of lobster), 2-3 lobsters at a time, allowing enough space in between the lobsters.
