Chef Tip:
To cook live lobsters, boil 3 (1-1/4 pound) lobsters in salted water 5 minutes or until bright red; remove and cool in ice water. With a turning motion, tear away lobster tails from heads; repeat to remove claws from bodies, discarding any green parts that may have been removed with the tail. Remove as much meat as possible from claws and tails and coarsely chop.
