Lobster is among many people’s favorite dishes to order at a nice restaurant, but you don’t have to go out to enjoy this delicious dish. Cooking lobster is as simple as steaming the crustacean in sea or salt water for 10 to 15 minutes. Lobster is often served with melted butter for dipping.
Eating a lobster takes a little technique. Hold it by the back and twist off the small legs, then twist off the claws. Both legs and claws contain tasty meat. You’ll need a nutcracker to break the claw, allowing you to push out the meat. The next part usually eaten is the tail, which you can get to by twisting the lobster in half and pulling out the large section of white tail meat.
The best part is, lobster meat is far less caloric than chicken or steak at only 90 calories per 3.5 ounces. It also contains omega-3 fatty acids, which contribute to a healthy heart.
