    Lobster raviolis, one of my favorites! What ever you do, don't throw out the carcasses, keep them for bisque. Another of my other favorites. I like the raviolis for groups. There not wasted and keep ok frozen if you don't cook them all.

    Yup, but you can break them up to cook if you're not serving them whole. Easy would be lobster Benedict. Crazy rich and delicious-throw a slice of vine ripened beefsteak tomato on there.

    you dont need to cook them to remove the shell... a quick blanch makes it a lot easier to get the meat out though cause it releases from the shell a bit.

    like had been posted a lobster salad or roll are always good.
    butter poaching after you remove the shell is great.
    split the tails in half and flash over a grill with flame makes for a great flavor.
    you can also make a lobster cake... same idea as a crab cake.
    goes well with quiche if you like making that sorta thing... could always make a crustless quiche like a frittata.
    if you have a bread/terrine pan you can make a lobster loaf or terrine but thats more time consuming.

    anyway you choose to go id serve it with corn and tomato because they are both great right now and are great with lobster.

    Big pot+ "crab boil" or pickling spice some h2o or beer add the lobsters and some nice fresh NJ corn on the cob, best time of year for it! Slice up some watermelon, yellow watermelons are around if you want to spruce it up. Bake some potatoes or just boil some with the corn & lobsters. Were talking about one pot goOd old eating... Don't get any simpler then that... O cucumber salad that goes great too.
