Expert Tips

  • The melted butter served at many restaurants is often “drawn” butter, which is made by melting butter and collecting the clear oil from the water and milk solids. Melted butter is fine to use at home and may actually have more flavor than drawn butter.
  • When purchasing live lobsters, there are a few things you should look for. A live lobster should have a hard shell and some leg movement and will curl its tail tightly when picked up. Discard lobsters that show no movement.
