Splitting a Live Lobster ... HELP!!!

CindyJ | Sep 2, 201107:25 AM

NOOOOOOO!!!! I just can't do it!! I have no problem dropping them into the steamer pot, fighting and kicking, but the recipes I'm considering preparing from Jasper White's "Lobster at Home" all require splitting them live. I'm wondering if I can get them partially steamed at the market and then pick up the recipe from there, but I have no idea how to adjust the cooking time, or how the recipe might be affected. I'm looking specifically at some of the pan roasted lobster recipes. Can anyone offer any advice to this crustacean coward?
