You can eat a lobster with just seven easy steps:
|1. Break or twist off the claws.|
|2. Crack each claw with a hammer, nutcracker, pliers, or other handy tool.|
|3. Separate the tail from the body by arching or bending the back until it cracks or breaks.|
|4. Bend back and break the flippers off of the tailpiece.|
|5. Insert a fork where the flippers broke off and push.|
6. Remove the back from the body. Open the remaining part of the body by breaking it apart sideways. You'll find succulent meat here as well.
This portion of the body contains the tomalley, or liver, of the lobster, which turns green when cooked. For some people, the tomalley is the best eating experience of the entire lobster.
|7. The meat in the small claws is very flavorful. Remove it by breaking the claw and sucking the meat out, as if drinking from a straw.|
