How to cook a Maine Lobster:

What you will need:

  • Large pot
  • Sea salt
  • Lobster or Lobsters
  • Melted butter

In the large pot bring 2 inches of water with a teaspoon of sea salt to a rolling boil. Place lobster or lobsters in the boiling water. Cover. When the water comes back to a boil, steam the lobster or lobsters for 12-25mins depending on size of the lobster. If you purchased a 1-1.25# lobster steam for 12-15mins. If you purchased a 1.5-2# lobster steam 15-18mins. If you purchased anything over 2# steam 20-25mins.

How to cook Maine Steamers or Mussels:

What you will need:

  • Large pot
  • Sea Salt
  • Steamers or Mussels
  • Melted butter(optional)
  • Broth

In the large pot bring 2 inches of water and a teaspoon of sea salt to a rolling boil. Whether you are cooking steamers or mussels or both you can just dump them right into the boiling water. Cover. When they come back to a boil steam 5-7mins or until they are all open. When they are all open they are done. When they are done you may use the water that they just cooked in, broth, to dip them in to remove any dirt that is left over. Then you may dip them into melted butter as you are eating them to give extra flavor.

Crab Cakes( makes 6 3oz cakes)

You will need:

  • 1# Fresh Maine Crabmeat
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 Tablespoon Old Bay Seasoning
  • 1 Tablespoon Worcestershire Sauce
  • ¼ cup diced onions
  • ¼ cup diced celery
  • ½ Tablespoon spicy brown mustard
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
  • ¾ cup mayonnaise
  • ¼ cup crushed Ritz crackers

Squeeze the juice out of the crabmeat the best you can. Place dry crabmeat into a large mixing bowl. Dice up the onions and celery, again, ring all the extra water out so they are dry when you measure them. Add the dry onions and celery to the crabmeat. Put all the other ingredients in the bowl and mix thoroughly. Try making a cake in your hands; if it stays together well then you are all set to continue, if not then you need to add a ¼ cup mayo to help them stick together better. Make all the cakes the same size. Place them in a greased frying pan. Brown the cakes on either side, check to make sure they have been heated through and serve.
