Full Answer

  1. Wrap the lobsters in tin foil, and place them in a preheated oven

    Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. For moist lobster meat, tightly wrap each lobster individually in one layer of tin foil before placing it in the oven on its back. Cook the lobster for 15 to 30 minutes, depending on the size of the lobster.

  2. Steam the lobster using a steamer basket in a stockpot

    Add water to the stockpot, keeping the water level low enough so that it doesn't reach the basket. Bring the water to a boil. Lower each lobster on its back into a steamer basket. Once the lobsters are in the basket, reduce the stove heat to medium, and cover the pot. Steam the lobsters for 5 to 7 minutes, depending on their sizes.

  3. Remove the lobsters from the heat

    Remove the lobsters from the oven or steamer using tongs. Allow the lobsters to cool slightly before serving to reduce the risk of burns.
