Once cooked, fill the head cavity with the stuffing till it reaches the tail. Pour rest of the butter on top. Pre-heat the oven to 450ºF, and bake for 15―20 minutes. If the tail is firm, the dish is ready. Garnish with melted butter and fresh lemon, and serve hot.

Ingredients for Lobster
  • Lobster (buy it split in ½ and cleaned), 1
  • Fresh crab meat, 1 oz.
  • Lemon juice, 2 tablespoons
Pre-heat the oven to 450ºF, and place a large pot filled with water in it. Make sure there are no guts or "inners" in the lobster. When the water is boiled, steam the lobster for about 10 minutes, and remove it from the pot. Take the lobster's opening and squeeze the stuffing and crab meat. In a baking pan, place the lobster with the stuffed side up. Drizzle lemon juice and pour some water in the pan to keep the lobster moist. Bake the lobster for about 10 minutes, and watch for the claws to split. Once they're split, your lobster is ready. Serve immediately so that the lobster doesn't dry out.
