Lobster Over Linguine
In large pot with steamer insert, bring small amount of water to boiling. Add lobsters; steam 8 to 10 minutes or until shells are bright orange-red (lobsters will be slightly undercooked; theyre cooked more in step 5). Let lobsters cool slightly. Holding lobsters over large bowl or 13 x 9 x 2-inch baking dish to collect juices, remove meat from tails and claws; coarsely chop. Place meat in bowl. Reserve lobster juices and meat separately. (Can be made a day ahead; refrigerate.)Advertisement
