 Lobster Suggestions from our Chef!


  Island Sunset Boiled Lobster:

Start with a big pot of salted water. The water should taste like a day at the beach. Add a sliced onion, carrot, celery and a lemon sliced in half. Bring to a rolling boil, drop the lobster in with rubber bands removed, let water return to a boil, cook for 17 to 18 minutes.  Remove lobster and immerse in cold water to stop cooking process. The antennas will remove easily from the body when cooked. Then enjoy with our famous “Foamy Butter Sauce.”

 Foamy Butter Sauce:

½ cup whipping cream
¼ cup white wine
1 lb unsalted butter (cubed)
1 tbsp. squeezed lemon juice
Salt & pepper to taste

Add wine to the pot and reduce heat by 1/2. Add whipping cream and reduce again by 2/3. Start whipping the butter into the mixture one cube at a time until each is melted. Add the first 6 cubes slowly and add the remaining cubes faster. Add lemon juice, salt & pepper and enjoy!

"We thoroughly enjoyed three nights at Island Sunset and should have stayed longer. From the comfortable cottages with the magnificent view of the ocean, watching the owner Wayne and his men building a dock, chatting and laughing with them, then Wayne inviting us to tour his lobster warehouse operations, welcoming smiles at the front desk, watching the sunset from your own porch in comfy Adirondack chairs, to the amazing lobster and crab dinners from the Lobster Pound - where you can feast on two lobsters one night and a lobster and pound of crab meat on the next night for a total of only $35 per person - total for both nights! Prepared and delivered with a smile to your personal cottage!! Oh, yes, the desserts from the Restaurant - big and deliciously decadent! The only place we will stay on Cape Breton. Thank you all for a wonderful visit. Ron and Rose"
