Boiling a Lobster Recipe

  French Seafood

1 TBS/QT Salt (sea salt preferred)
1-2 bay leaves
10 whole black peppercorns
pinch Herbes de Provence
1 C/QT White Wine (dry)
1 Oz Dry Sherry

Boil all ingredients above for 5 minutes, then add fresh lobster. Upon returning to boil, mediate heat to give a medium boil and cook 9-11 minutes/lb. Make sure boil is continuous (not too fast or too slow).
This is quite under-salted relative to sea water (the baseline for cooking all seafood). Additional salt may be used based on sauce/preparation.
