Place all the ingredients apart from the lobster into a big stockpot and slowly bring to the boil. Then, plunge the live lobster into the pot head first and simmer for 15 minutes. Drain the lobster and split it into two halves. Serve with mayonnaise, a fresh garden salad and brown bread. Pair the dish with your favourite stout.
Guinness and seafood is always a winning combination. The salty taste of the sea is perfectly balanced by the silky, smooth taste of canned Guinness® Draught. For something different try pairing any smoked fish with Guinness, either warm or as a cold salad.
