How much salt do you add to the water when you are cooking lobster?

Answer by  rot (91)

You want your water to be about as salty as sea water, a ratio of 2 tablespoons of sea salt to each quart of water should be sufficient. If using table salt, you can reduce to one and a half tablespoons as it packs tighter than sea salt.

Add 2 to 4 tablespoons before boiling the water. You want to add the salt to stop from drawing the salt out of the lobster while you boil it.
