As simple as it is, it is still the most popular! 

Fill a large steamer or deep cooking pot with water to a depth of about 2 inches. Bring to a rapid boil. Place the fresh Nova Scotia Hardshell Lobster on a steamer rack and cover. Return to a boil and steam for about 18-20 minutes or until cooked. 

Crack and clean your Nova Scotia Hardshell Lobster and enjoy the world's best lobster meat on its own (dipped in melted butter... mmm mmmm) or in your favorite lobster or seafood recipe! 

Cooking Test 
Lobster meat should be pure white, opaque and elastic. Walking legs will pull out easily from the body. Tomalley will be green and firm. Roe will be bright red and firm. If it is black and oily the lobster is undercooked.
