 Lobster Suggestions from our Chef!


  Island Sunset Boiled Lobster:

Start with a big pot of salted water. The water should taste like a day at the beach. Add a sliced onion, carrot, celery and a lemon sliced in half. Bring to a rolling boil, drop the lobster in with rubber bands removed, let water return to a boil, cook for 17 to 18 minutes.  Remove lobster and immerse in cold water to stop cooking process. The antennas will remove easily from the body when cooked. Then enjoy with our famous “Foamy Butter Sauce.”

 Foamy Butter Sauce:

½ cup whipping cream
¼ cup white wine
1 lb unsalted butter (cubed)
1 tbsp. squeezed lemon juice
Salt & pepper to taste

Add wine to the pot and reduce heat by 1/2. Add whipping cream and reduce again by 2/3. Start whipping the butter into the mixture one cube at a time until each is melted. Add the first 6 cubes slowly and add the remaining cubes faster. Add lemon juice, salt & pepper and enjoy!

"Thank you both!!!! This is from the lady who met you while shopping for home furniture at the Mayflower Mall. Our time after the thunder and lightening storm was terrific. Thanks to both of you my daughter and her friend had a great meal and were lucky enough to win at Bingo in Inverness too! Thank you for helping teach them that after a storm there is sunshine!!!! Blessings, Nancy L. Bona"
