Place in the freezer for 15 minutes or while you bring a large pan of salted water to the boil (big enough for the water to cover the whole lobster). Once boiling add the lobster and cook for 20 minutes, Remove and allow to cool slightly so you can handle it. You can either cut the lobster in half lengthways or begin by breaking off the tail and removing all meat from there first. The claws can then be snapped off and using a lobster/crab cracker or sharp knife you can cut open the claws and pull the meat from them too.
