Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 2 hours 30 minutes
Total Time 2 hours 45 minutes


  • 2 lemons
  • 2 tbsp minced garlic
  • 5 mint green tea bags (you can use any infusion teabags, I don’t recommend plain tea)
  • 1 large thawed rock lobster ( or Morton bay bug/s) 780gm
  • 3 cups of boiling water
  • 3 tbsp of melted butter / tbsp. butter
  • Baking paper


  • Infuse teabags, juice of both lemons (don’t throw away the rinds) and garlic in 3 cups of boiling water for 10 mins to make an aromatic water/broth
  • Squeeze teabags and strain water in to slow cooker
  • Rest baking paper on the water; be sure to have enough to sit on the water with the edges against the slow cooker
  • Place the lobster gently on the paper trying to avoid submerging the paper in the aromatic water
  • Coat the lobster in the melted butter
  • Place the ¼’d rinds on top of the lobster
  • Place lid on top
  • Cook for 2 hours and 30 mins on high
  • ( I chose to add corn cobs 1 hour in to the cooking process and more butter and added Asian greens 30 mins later)
