Lobster Bake Instructions
Place a one-inch layer of seaweed (a layer of crumpled aluminum foil to raise lobsters off the bottom of pan will do) in a 16 x 12 roasting pan. Parboil onions and potatoes. Place lobsters on seaweed and arrange the corn and onions between the lobsters and the sides of the pan. Place clams, mussels and potatoes over the lobsters, keeping top level. Layer with the balance of the seaweed and add water to the pan. Cover tightly with a lid or aluminum foil and place on the stove or a preheated grill to cook. Start timing when you first see steam. Cook, covered , for 15 minutes. Remove from heat, but do not uncover for five minutes. Serve your lobster bake with clarified butter, clam broth and coleslaw.
