TIP: 

How to cook a lobster: It’s so much easier than you think. If you can boil water then you can cook a lobster. Start with a live lobster. Fill a large pot with water, salt, a sliced lemon, and some fresh dill. Once the water is boiling, drop the lobster in head first. Cover the pot and boil for about 15 minutes (for an average-sized 1¼ lb lobster). It will be bright red and the tail will be curled. Take it out of the water. Do not rinse, but simply let it cool down to room temperature.

Frozen lobsters are also more convenient for cooking.

Lobsters must be bought live, and kept alive until you’re ready to cook them

The cooking time for fresh lobster depends very much on personal choice or cultural culinary.
