1 cup white wine
1 tablespoon coriander seeds
1 tablespoon kosher salt
Pinch crushed red pepper
2 bay leaves
1 head garlic, halved horizontally
1 lemon, halved and squeezed
One 1 to 2-pound Maine lobster
Bring about 3 quarts of water to a boil. Add the wine, coriander, salt, red pepper, thyme, bay leaves, garlic and lemon to the boiling water, and then reduce the heat and simmer, 10 to 15 minutes.
Place the lobster in the pot and simmer, 5 minutes. Turn off the heat and let the lobster sit in the hot water 10 minutes.
Plunge the lobster into a salted ice bath. When completely cool, remove from the ice and serve.
