Lobsters. Do you know what they like to eat better than anything else? Other lobsters. I'm Jawara the chef, and today, I will show you how to steam your lobster. This is a lobster pot to steam your lobsters. See, we've got the little holes in there and everything. Put it in there. Cover. If you don't have a lobster pot, you can have just your regular old pan, do a little bowl in there to let the lobster rest on top. The first thing you need to do is put water in the bottom of your lobster pot. The next thing I would do, I will take a half a lemon and a couple of bay leaves for my seasoning. It's very important you must cook your lobster and your lobster must be alive when you cook it. Do not attempt to cook a dead lobster. If you do that, you can get very, very sick. Make sure -- rule of safety -- that your lobster is alive before you cook it. Now, you turn on your heat. Now, you let it come to a boil. The pot's steaming. And I'm getting ready to put it in the pot -- in the steamer -- and you let it steam for 15 minutes. And that's all you have to do. Carefully remove your lid -- you'll get steam. Careful with the steam. Let the steam go a little bit. Take your tongs and move your lobster. It's a beautiful red color, nice and hot, and the most of all, it's ready to eat. Now, only thing you need now is melt the butter and someone to show you how to eat it. That's in the next video. I'm Jawara the chef, and that's how you steam your lobster. Mm, that's what I'm talking about.
