  • 2 live Maine lobsters, 1 1/2 pounds
  • 1/4 pound unsalted butter, melted

  • 2 sprigs fresh chopped Italian parsley
  • 1/4 pound raw Maine shrimp
  • salt and freshly ground pepper

  • Season with salt and freshly ground pepper.
  • Put the lobster on its back, and hold firmly with one hand. Insert a sharp, heavy knife into the lobster where the head meets the body, and quickly slice through the entire length of the body and tail. Spread the lobster open. With your fingers, remove and discard the food sac near the head. Remove and reserve the tomalley and eggs, if present. Remove and discard the vein that runs down the middle of the tail. Crack the claws. Rinse the lobster under cold running water.

  • Divide the mixture evenly between the two lobsters, spreading the stuffing over the center so that the lobsters look whole again.
