Rinse them in cool water, put them in a pot with no additional water, put the lid on, medium heat to steam them until they turn pink all over, then throw them on a newspaper-covered table, peel them and eat them. A little melted butter or another sauce of your choosing can't hurt to have on the table for dipping!
