2 whole 1 1/4 pound Maine lobsters
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, cut into pieces
1 teaspoon paprika
2 tablespoons lemon juice

Serve with melted butter and lemon wedges.
Chef's Tip: To clean crab meat of shell pieces and cartilage: Spread chilled crab over a cookie sheet and place under a red hot broiler on top rack for 30 to 60 seconds. Bone fragments will be easy to pick out at this time.
