1. If using whole lobster, twist claws from lobster to remove. With a cleaver, cut lobster into large pieces (or ask your fishmonger to do this). Remove and discard sac near head and intestinal vein in tail. Remove the gray-green liver and any roe.
2. In a nonreactive large frying pan, heat olive oil over medium heat. Stir in garlic and onion and cook 2 to 3 minutes, or until softened. Add hot pepper flakes, pepper, and parsley. Cook, stirring, until just fragrant, about 30 seconds. Place lobster, cut side down, in pan and cook covered over medium-low heat 15 minutes, or until lightly browned.
