Ingredients

  • Two 1 1/4-pound live lobsters
  • 3 Cups tomato sauce
  • 1 Tablespoon red pepper flakes
  • 1/4 Cup dry white wine
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 2 Tablespoons chopped parsley
  • 1/2 Pound linguine, cooked to package instructions

Directions

The easiest and best way to cook the cook lobsters is by steaming. Put a rack or collapsible vegetable steamer in a pot large enough to hold the lobsters and add 1½ inches of water. Cover and bring to a boil. Add the lobsters, cover, and steam for about 15 minutes, until they are bright red. Using tongs, remove and place each lobster on its back and split lengthwise. In a large skillet, bring the tomato sauce and red pepper flakes to a boil. Add the wine and season with salt and pepper, to taste. Place the lobsters in the sauce and reduce heat. Spoon a generous amount of sauce over each lobster. Cover and simmer for 10 minutes. To serve, place the lobster on the side of a plate alongside the pasta, adding sauce to both as desired. Garnish with parsley.

Lobster Shopping Tip

Seafood shopping is quite easy in the general sense. Rule of thumb: if it smells fishy, don't buy. Fresh seafood should smell mild and more like the ocean and sea water rather than fish.
