If you can’t make out that sign, it says: LOBSTER $5.00 LB.
We tried two steamed and two boiled. The taste test says … steamed, in salt (always!) water, and not for long:
1-1/4 lbs. 7-8 minutes
1-1/2 lb. 8-10 minutes
2 lbs. 11-12 minutes
2-1/2-3 lb. 12-14 minutes
5 lb. 20-22 minutes
Keep a lookout for travel photos from Italy, Egypt, Turkey, and Greece!
