Kippy Young, the Maine lobsterman who gave us this recipe, advised us to boil the lobsters in seawater, but salted water works just as well.
1/2 lb. butter
4 live medium Maine lobsters
4 lemons, halved
1. Melt butter in a small saucepan. Set aside. When milk solids have settled, pour off drawn butter into a serving dish.
2. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Plunge in lobsters; cook for 5 minutes per pound. Drain; allow to cool a bit. Serve with drawn butter and lemon halves.
