Best to Buy
Look for live and frisky lobsters (their tails should curl up or flap when picked up) that smell fresh, with no hint of ammonia.
Prep & Store
Refrigerate live lobsters wrapped in wet newspaper on a bed of ice for no more than a few hours. Cook and eat the same day you buy it. Discard any lobster that dies before you cook it.
Freshly cooked lobster has a bright red shell. Any exposed meat should be white and moist, not dry or yellow.
