Lobsters are a positively delicious seafood, but they’re not exactly the easiest food to eat. Especially if you don’t have it very often. If you’ve never had it, or just need a refresher, this graphic walks you through eating a lobster.
Eating lobster (or crabs or many shelled seafood) the right way is all about maximizing how much of the meat you actually get. You can poke around and get a bit of the meat if you’re clumsy with it, but by being careful and following the right steps, you can get a whole lot more. You’ll need a lobster/nut cracker around for certain parts, though if you’re eating at a restaurant they probably have one available.
