Source: The Martha Stewart Show, May 2010


  • Coarse salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 4 live (1-to-2-pound) lobsters
  • 1/2 stick unsalted butter, melted
  • 2 teaspoons chopped parsley
  • 2 teaspoons minced chives
  • Maldon sea salt
  • Lemon wedges, for serving


  1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Prepare an ice-water bath. Generously salt boiling water and return to a boil. Plunge lobsters headfirst into boiling water and cook for 5 minutes; immediately transfer to ice-water bath to cool.

  2. Meanwhile, preheat broiler. In a small bowl, mix together butter, parsley, chives, and 1/2 teaspoon salt; set aside.

  3. With a large knife, cut cooled lobsters in half lengthwise. Place cut side up on a baking sheet and brush cut side with butter mixture.

  4. Transfer to broiler and broil until lobsters are golden brown and cooked through, 6 to 8 minutes. Sprinkle with sea salt and serve immediately with lemon wedges.
