14 Broiled Live Lobster

Kill the lobster by inserting a sharp knife in its back between the body

and tail shells cutting the spinal cord. Split the shell the entire

length of the back, remove the stomach and intestinal canal, crack the

large claws and lay the fish as flat as possible. Brush the meat with

melted butter, season with salt and pepper, place in a broiler, and with

the flesh side down, cover and broil slowly until a delicate brown,

about 20 minutes. Turn the broiler and broil 10 minutes longer. Serve

hot, with a sauce of melted butter.
