The best way to cook lobster depends on whether you want to enjoy the fresh taste of the lobster itself, or the more intricate flavors of a complex recipe, and on whether you are cooking a full live lobster, or just the lobster tail or lobster meat.

To enjoy the full flavor of a Maine lobster, the best way to cook the lobster is probably the simplest way; boiling or steaming a whole, fresh live lobster. Or you can do a simple recipe such as a basic lobster stew, or perhaps a grilled lobster. But there are also dozens of classic lobster recipes such as Lobster Thermidor, Lobster Newburg, Lobster Bisque, and others.
