Tips On How To Eat A Whole Lobster Delicately?
Lobster can be considered as the greatest and tastiest creature among those in the ocean. This type of seafood is also one of the trickiest seafoods to eat once it reaches the table. Having understood your concern, Fishermen’s Net is going to give you the best experience with lobster ever. Today’s blog is all about how to eat a whole lobster delicately. Let’s get started!
What to prepare before eating lobster?
As we have already stated at the beginning, lobster can be a challenging dish for many people to eat. Therefore, we suggest that you should be well-prepared before heading to the table.
In the process of getting ready, a seafood tool set is certainly what you cannot miss. Please have a look at some of the essential instruments for eating lobster.
- Bib: This heavy-duty tool helps to protect your clothes from the splashes and splatters that can accompany eating seafood. Most of the bibs are specially designed with neck ties for secure wear. Therefore, you can be totally assured that you and your beloved outfits will not be dirty when eating lobster.
- Fork: Lobster fork is a long, narrow food utensil which is used to help scrape the meat out. Especially, it provides you with the ability to extract those meat from joints, legs, claws or other small parts of lobster that are hard to take out by hands.
- Lobster cracker: Besides from the tiny fork, you need to prepare yourself a lobster cracker. This instrument is manufactured with the purpose of cracking the hard shells of seafood such as crab and lobster.
- Towelette: Finally, you can end your eating-lobster process by cleansing your hands with a towelette.
Now that you are ready with the necessary tools, let’s learn how to eat a whole lobster delicately.
How to eat a whole lobster?
Let’s start with the easiest part of a lobster - The tail.
Firstly, remove the tail from the lobster’s body by pulling or twisting it.
Next, there are two options for you to choose. You can pull off the fins at the bottom, then pull the lobster meat out of the hole it creates. On the other hand, try to pull the tail apart from where it is attached to the body. This is to help split the lobster tain into two halves.
Continue this process with the tiny fork. Whether it is in a whole or in halves, just simply use the fork to pull the meat out of the shell. So as to have the best taste, try to do it in one piece.
After you have done enjoying the lobster tail, it is time for you to crack open the claws.
First of all, twist the claws off right at the connection between them and the lobster’s body. By doing this, you are likely to have the whole lobster’s “arm” taken out.
Then, use the lobster cracker to break the shell right in the middle of it and between the grabby parts. With proper force, there will be an opening where you can pull the meat out with the lobster fork.
Other tiny bits
Apart from the two main parts (the tail and the claws) where you can find the majority of lobster meat, try the tiny bits. You can take the meat out of the tail fins’ end, or you can get it from the knuckle. Despite there are not much to eat, we are sure that you do not want to miss any single taste of this delicious dish.
