  • Summary

    Each summer, many lobsters' tough shells are replaced by thin ones. These lobsters, called "shedders," are a delight to eat -- it takes no effort to get at the tail and claw meat. Still, it is smart to keep a pair of crackers at hand, just in case. Boiling lobsters in court-bouillon, a staple for poaching seafood, makes them quite flavorful in the absence of seawater.

    Ingredients

    • 2 medium white onions, sliced into 1-inch rounds
    • 2 large carrots, cut into thirds
    • 2 stalks celery, cut into thirds
    • 4 sprigs fresh thyme
    • 1 small bunch fresh flat-leaf parsley
    • 1 large bay leaf
    • 1 bottle dry white wine
    • 1 teaspoon whole black peppercorns
    • Salt
    • 12 live lobsters, about 1 1/2 pounds each, "shedders," if available
    • 1 pound butter, melted
    • 6 lemons, halved
