Add a few pats of butter to the foil packet, before putting it in the oven. This will keep the meat from drying out. Lobster gets rubbery fast, so be careful when reheating. Individuals can also grill lobster, to reheat it. Touch up the meat with melted butter and some lemon juice, then place the lobster on the grill with the meat facing the flames. Reheat until the internal temperature reaches 180 degrees.

  • Q:

    How do you choose lobster?

    A:

    Select Maine lobsters that are alive and small, and purchase them directly from a fisherman or a small-scale fishmonger. Lobster is best when purchased alive and killed immediately before cooking. When lobsters die, enzymes in the upper digestive tract begin to digest their own bodies, which results in mushy meat in the upper area of the tail.
