Can You Cook Live Lobsters Humanely

What’s the most humane way to turn a live lobster into a succulent dinner? The debate has gone on for years with lobster eaters claiming the lobsters feel no pain when they’re tossed alive into boiling water, and lobster advocates demanding that better ways be found for killing and cooking live lobsters.

There has been a lot of scientific research done to try to determine the amount of pain a lobster actually feels. While not being totally conclusive the findings have been good news for people who love to eat fresh lobster.

A lobster has a brain about the same size as a grasshopper has which is pretty minute for a larger animal like a lobster. Lobsters brains are lacking in the complexity human brains have which means a lobster is unable to think.

There’s no way a lobster can have a brain like that and have the ability to think or feel like we do. Researchers have concurred that the practice of cooking live lobsters by steaming and boiling and grilling are not inhumane.

The method used to steam a lobster starts with putting two inches of seawater or any salted water into the bottom of a four to five gallon pot. This is the ideal configuration for cooking six to eight pounds of lobster. Put a steaming rack into the cold water, and turn the heat on high until the water reaches a rolling boil. Add the lobsters one at a time, put the lid on the pot, and start your timer. It takes about 10 minutes to cook one pound of lobster. A pot of six to eight pounds of lobster will take about an hour to cook. During the cooking time, rearrange the lobsters once.

If you want to boil your live lobsters, add 3 quarts of water to your large pot for every 1 to 2 pounds of lobster. For each gallon of water you end up using, you will need to add one quarter cup of salt. Bring the pot up to a rolling boil. Once again, add the lobsters to the boiling water one at a time. Start timing immediately. One pound of lobster will require 8 minutes of boiling time. Six to eight pounds will take 50 minutes to an hour. Stir the lobsters half way through the cooking time.

Grilling lobsters starts the same way boiling them does by cooking them in boiling water for about five minutes. Remove them from the hot water immediately and plunge them into a cold water bath so that they won’t continue to cook. Take each well drained lobster and place it on its back on a cutting board. Using a sharp knife, split each lobster down the middle and cut out the black vein in the tail and the sand sac by the head. Baste the lobsters with melted butter or oil and place them flesh side down on the grill. Cook them for five to six minutes on that side before turning them over. Baste them again and continue cooking for another four or five minutes.

There are still people who shy away from lobsters that are cooked live, but most have come to accept the fact that the lobsters do not suffer. Cooking a live lobster is the way to experience the freshest lobster meat available. Not only can you purchase live lobsters at restaurants and supermarkets, there are also many wonderful online seafood shops that promise the very freshest lobster delivered to your door overnight.
