Lobster Boil!

Summer in New York City is right around the corner and nothing to better celebrate the new season than an old fashioned Lobster Boil!

Steamed Lobsters with Spanish Potatoes, Corn on the Cob & Salad


(3) 1.5 Live Maine Lobster (preferably from The Lobster Place on Bleeker)
3 Whole corn on the cob halved
Kosher Salt
1 large pot 3/4 filled with water
1 12 oz. bottle of Wheat Beer

Boil Water over high heat.  Once water is boiling add kosher salt & lobsters, head first.  Add beer, corn and cover.  Cook for 18-20 minutes and drain. Serve immediately.

Spanish Potatoes

  • 3 Large russet potatoes peeled and sliced thin
  • 1 cup of canola oil
  • Kosher Salt
  • Old Bay Seasoning
Heat oil in a deep pan over medium high heat.  Once oil is heated (test by dripping a water drop into oil from your hand.  If it starts to bubble oil is hot enough.) place potatoes in a single layer in oil.  Cook potatoes by flipping once.  Once potatoes are brown remove from oil and place on a plate layered with paper towel.  Sprinkle a pinch of kosher salt on potatoes and cover.  Repeat until all potatoes are cooked.  

Mixed Greens Salad

  • Handful of Mixed Greens or Mesclun Greens
  • Thinly sliced english cucumber
  • Thinly sliced white onion
  • Halved Grape Tomatoes
  • Red Wine Vinaigrette (Red Wine Vinegar, Honey, Salt & Pepper, Olive Oil)

Serve all together and Enjoy!
