Another Important Life Lesson: Lobster on Ice

For those of you who, like me, (Mr. Samms, this means YOU) are deeply disturbed by the way we've always cooked lobsters (you know, just throwing them screaming and tails flailing into a big huge pot of salty boiling water) you'll be happy with my new-found knowledge as learned on my favourite new cooking show, the TAKE HOME CHEF a.k.a. Hot Aussie, Curtis.
So, according to Curtis, the most humane way to cook a lobster is to first put the lobster in the freezer. The cold temperature makes the lobster go into a deep sleep/state of unconsciousness so then it's not aware of what's happening as it plunges into the scorching water.
And now we can just enjoy our yummy lobster instead of feeling guilty about how cruelly we cook them...Amen!
