A lobster will, quite literally, drown in fresh water. Lobsters have teeth in their stomachs. The lobster’s voice is a crackly noise some people compare to violins. It’s a myth that lobsters scream when you put them in hot water – they have no lungs and no vocal cords. A one-pound lobster should be cooked for about 15 minutes. Lobster steamed in beer is delicious. A pilsner or lager is the best choice. Maine is famous for producing the most lobsters, and, some would claim, the best.
