what goes well with lobster??

5 more with a pound of melted butter, 2 beers, and plenty of paper towels

and don't junk up the plate with sides/veggies/rice

lobsters are one of my favorite meals, and at family gatherings we have all you can eat
its serious eating up here ( I grew up fishing for lobsters, use to eat em every day in the summer-never got sick of them)

if you HAVE to have something else, steamer clams are good, corn on the cob, and watermelon

Baked potato with butter and sour cream and a small green side salad...or fresh asparagus also drizzled with butter.

What time is supper?

Nope! I love butter, but when I have lobster, I skip the butter entirely. I want to taste the lobster -- JUST the lobster.

I'll have a beer or wine with it and then after it is done move on to what ever else sounds good.

Me too. I'd rather have my lobster plain than with butter. Jayway is not alone.

Fresh Lobster is best to savour it on its own. Grilling makes it more fragrant and some garlic, nice to go with spaghetti.

I've never put a lobster on a grill. Might need to try that. I have done traditional bakes though.

Problem is that most people choose to boil it which drains away much of the lobster flavor. Then they add butter which cancels out the lobsters flavor.

The best way to cool lobster is to grill or steam.

I have a preference for grilled lobster, salt, pepper, garlic, and touch of lemon juice.

Could you please invite me over for dinner? Since I read this thread I'm been dreaming of lobster and other seafood

You're lucky lobsters all you can eat everyday... Over here they are expensive big shrimps.
