We bought steamed whole lobsters yesterday and they have been in the fridge overnight. We'd like to eat them hot with butter tonight, what is the best way to reheat the lobsters?
You can pop them back in boiling water for a few minutes. Or:I would shell them while they're cold. Set the meat aside. Put the shells in a pot, cover with water and boil for 10 minutes. Then when it's dinner time, put the lobster meat in a saucepans cover with the lobster broth and a few tablespoons butter. Reheat gently over low heat. Use a slotted spoon to remove the lobster to plates. Serve with melted butter.
Amanda's comment is dead on! If you'd care to skip the step of making the lobster broth, heating the shelled meat in just a few tablespoons of water, butter, and lemon juice on low heat until heated through will also yield excellent results and prevent possible overcooking. Enjoy!
Add a few inches of water in a large pot . Place a vegetable steamer basket in the bottom. Put the lobsters on top, cover with a lid and turn the heat to high. When the water boils turn the heat off and let steam for about 4-5 mins or until they feel warm.
