Cooking these delicious lobster is a menu fit for a king.
We have come up with three great, quick and easy recipes for lobster anytime of the day. If you love Lobster as much as we do, you these recipes are all you’ve been looking for! Every time July rolls around our family and friends begin planning our yearly trip to the Key’s for opening lobster season. We stake out our potential hunting sites and wait for 1 minute after midnight on opening day to start bully netting. After a night of filling the coolers by bully netting lobsters on the flats we head home to sleep. As soon as the sun is about to rise we are at it again looking for the keepers. After catching our limit, we head home to enjoy a delicious lobster meal. We have come up with a few of our favorites to enjoy anytime of the day.
If you are really good and catch your limit early morning, you will be home in time for.........
Lobster Egg Benedict......Yummm!
- Lemon Juice

3. Broil in over for 4-5 min or until lobster meat appears opaque

Bringing it all Together
1. Toast 2 English muffins (4 halves)
2. Top with 3-4 leaves of fresh spinach (optional)
3. Place boiled lobster on top of spinach
4. Place poached egg on top of lobster
5. Top with Hollandaise Sauce
Tips: Keep in mind your poached egg will not look great if it’s your first time poaching an egg. Make sure you have 2 extra eggs to practice if you have never done it. At first mine would just breakup into 100 pieces and be a mess. If worst comes to worst, just fry your egg over easy and it will essentially give you the same effect…runny egg yolk mixing into your lobster.
