THE WAY I EAT LOBSTER

Eating lobster is one of my great pleasures when relishing food. Lobster is very palatable, but handling it can be quite messy; fun, but messy.

If there were a tidy way to do it, restaurants wouldn’t supply their customers with a bib, but the succulent meat makes all the effort worthwhile.

Although techniques can vary depending on local tradition and personal preference, here there are several tips and steps to guide you to help you get the most out of your next lobster meal.

  1. Separate the tail from the rest of the body by bending the lobster backward.

  2. Snap off the flippers, and push the meat out of the shell using a fork at the flipper end of the tail.

  3. Twist off the claws, and gently move the pincher from side to side until you feel it snap. Gently pull it away.

  4. Gently crack the claws open with a nutcracker to release the meat.

  5. Pluck off the legs. If you’d like, use a small fork to break the shell.

  6. Crack the body of the lobster open to remove the meat.

Add the potatoes and cook for about 6 minutes. Add the kielbasa then add the live lobsters, one at at time, claw first. Set the timer for 12 minutes. By then the lobsters will be cooked completely through and the meat will be solid white (if you are using a meat thermometer the temperature of the tail should read 180ºF).

At the 7 minute mark add the clams to the pot. When there are 4 minutes to go on the timer, add the corn.

When the time is up, drain the water from the pot and spread the contents from the boil on a large covered table or add the contents into large serving bowls.

Serve with grilled bread, lemon wedges and plenty of melted butter for dipping.
