I will admit right here and now that I am not capable of cooking a lobster myself, so if you are in my camp you can do what I do, which is to ask your friendly neighborhood seafood counter person at the supermarket to steam it for you.

Then when we get home, the Southern husband grabs the kitchen shears and gets to work. If you need a quick overview on how to shell a lobster, here’s a handy video for you. Once your lobster meat is out of the shell, all that’s left to do is gently scramble some eggs, fold in the lobster, ladle it out into warm bowls and sprinkle on some salt and pepper and chopped chives.
