An Old Lobster Couple
I used to travel through Boston for work projects and bring home live lobsters for my husband to cook and enjoy. Since I’m highly allergic to any type of seafood, I prepare something else for me.
As I’m not traveling anywhere near Boston right now and there’s no ocean in Arizona from which to catch my own, I’ve ordered lobster for my husband’s Valentine dinner.
This time I want his dinner entree to be a surprise which requires I cook it. But I don’t know how. Can any of you advise me? A simple recipe for a lobster-ignorant cook would be ever so appreciated.
“It's a known fact that lobsters fall in love and mate for life. You know what, you can actually see old lobster couples walkin' around their tank, ya know, holding claws.” (Phoebe, Friends, Episode 2.14)
I look forward to our being an old claw-holding lobster couple.
