GUINNESS® Good Food Guide

The Ultimate GUINNESS® Lobster


Serves 2

  • 1 fresh Irish lobster
  • 2 can of GUINNESS® Draught
  • 1 ltr of water
  • Bay leaf
  • Salt
  • Thyme
  • A squeeze of lemon juice

This one is for when you really want to impress. It's not hard and will blow any seafood lover's socks off.

Put everything bar the lobster in a big stock pot 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 in two halves. Then serve with mayonnaise, fresh garden salad, wholesome brown bread and wash it down with your favourite stout.


GUINNESS® and seafood is always a winner. The sweet salty taste of the sea is perfectly balanced by the silky, smooth taste of GUINNESS® Draught in cans. For something different try any smoked fish with GUINNESS®. Either warm or as a salad, it's delicious.
