Cooking Notes

If you use frozen lobster, you should defrost it in the refrigerator. The lobster should not be kept at room temperature on the counter. Because this will allow the bacteria to grow. If you are in a hurry, you can put them in a plastic bag and then place them in a bowl of warm water.

To make sure your lobster is cooked enough, grill it until its shell turns color to bright orange and its meat is opaque. Overcooking the lobster makes the meat dry.

You can add fresh thyme, Mexican oregano, or any herbs you like to the butter mixture, it depends on your taste.

To prevent overcooking lobsters, you can use the thermometer temperature test method. If you use this method, remember the temperature should not be more than 140° F (60 °C) .

The best-fitted vegetable serving with your grilled lobster includes string beans, broccoli, fresh herbs, and steamed asparagus covered with fresh Kalleh Shredded Parmesan cheese.

If you are using frozen lobster and it turns mushy after cooking, it shows the low quality of the lobster. The bad news is it was probably dead while processing.

When you are buying lobster, remember soft-shell lobsters are sweeter, and their shells can be easily removed or cracked by hand. But the important difference is that their meat is quite watery and in comparison with hard-shell lobsters, they have less meat inside. Generally, hard-shell lobsters contain about 30 percent more meat than soft-shells.
