These scare me...not the pincers, just the 'how the hell do you eat them?' moment.

Anyone willing to part with advice to help me?

Nutcrackers and a decent carving knife will do the job, but you can get proper tools

If you had only used "Pincers" instead, that would've been so much better!

Be aware these lobsters are tiny. The weight for the whole lobster is a mere 350g and the vast majority of that will be the shell, claws and bits you can't eat.

It's still a good deal, but if you're planning on getting one for a buffet or a meal for the family, you'll need a few of them.

They are very tiny indeed! Barely half a portion but ok if you fancy mixing it up a bit. I topped a steak with one last night.

Just confirming what the others have said - hardly anything in them.
Not worth the bother to be honest
#16
I agree with the very small comments. When You see how much meat you get for £5 you might be a bit disappointed. If you are cooking for several' people then buy a lot of lobsters. Or preferably get a big one from a fishmonger.

Arrrrr themachman, I was just writing one about HUKDers loading trolleys with lobsters to sell on Ebay. The punchline was GOING to be "Come on guys, don't be shellfish".

Come on Chimp, think, think dammit... there must be more.

the claws and shells can be blitzed down in blender and used in sauce much tastier than any sauce you can buy :)

I am pretty sure these are farmed and £5 does not represent good value for money as, as you said, very small. After throwing away the head, not much to show for a fiver. I would rather have a chicken!

Really? I've never heard of this before. I make stock with the shells, but have never blended them. Pray tell me more.

I tried the Tesco version which is 350g for about £4.50 on offer last month. As nice as it is, there was probably around 60g of edible meat.
I would go a bit more expensive and get a quality product. More g/£.

An alternative is to get crayfish tails from the deli section of waitrose etc, those are ready prepped morsels.
