Taking a lobster apart before eating is an art. It involves protecting your clothing with a lobster bib and napkins, and taking the time to crack the lobster open, and remove the meat from the tail, claws, and legs.


This whole process can be messy, and it may leave you behind others dining with you who are not so brave. You may have to adjust to the idea of finishing last.

Lobster Cracking Instructions:

  1. Twist off the lobster claws.

  2. Crack each lobster claw and knuckle with a lobster cracker

  3. Separate the lobster tail from the body.

  4. Insert a fork and push the tail meat out in one piece.

  5. Remove the black vein which runs the length of the lobster tail.

  6. Extract the meat from the legs by biting down and squeezing the meat out with your teeth.

  7. Use your fork and find the meat in the lobster's tail flippers.
