Remove the Legs
To begin eating a whole lobster, start by twisting and pulling off the legs. You can begin sucking out the meat from the legs first, or set them aside for later and keep that white meat when you really want to taste something unique and delicious.
Crack the Claws
With lobster meat, a lot of it is situation in and around the claws. In order to get that succulent meat out of the hard claws, crack them open with a lobster cracker or hammer and take them out with your fingers. This is why a bib is also necessary because eating a whole lobster is not always so clean and simple.
The Best Part
Hold the lobster’s body with one hand and slowly remove the tail with the other. A whole lot of meat will come out this way and for many lobster enthusiasts, this is definitely the best part of the whole lobster. Take your time and savour the flavour in every bite.
Now it is time to eat the body of the lobster which will be full of soft, white and delicious meat. Take your time identifying each bite and you can even ‘debone’ the lobster before going ahead with eating it. The head is left by most people, but some say it tastes good as well. Depending on what you want to eat, you can keep and throw out the remaining if unused. Lobster eggs can also be eaten, but some people skip on them and the green tomalley found in a lobster, which are its basic digestive organs.
