Serve lobster precracked so that it is easy for guests to pick up and eat. The tails are sliced and rearranged into their shells for an attractive presentation, and drawn butter is served warm for dunking.
Live lobsters aren't as daunting to handle as you may think. Pick them up firmly, grabbing them from the back behind the claws, and place them directly into the pot.

For a 1.5 lb lobster, cook for 18 minutes. My pot wasn't big enough to put two lobsters, so I cooked one at a time. Doing so will give the first lobster some time to cool-off before being served. Try serving this dish with boiled red potatoes and sweet corn.
