Tips for succulent shellfish

Lobster

  • Remember, lobster shells turn bright red well before they are ready to eat.
  • Look for firm, white meat to ensure it is fully cooked.
  • For best flavor, do not defrost frozen lobsters before cooking.

Crab

  • Prepare sauces before cooking crab - it doesn’t stay warm long.
  • Crack crab legs at the end to get the meat out easily.

Shrimp

  • Shrimp loses half its weight after cooking. Two pounds raw become one pound cooked.
  • Cook only until the flesh becomes opaque. Overcooking shrimp makes it dry and rubbery.
  • To devein shrimp, make a shallow cut along the outer curve, pick out the dark vein with a pointed utensil, then rinse.
  • Shrimp cooked in the shell has more flavor than shrimp that’s peeled before cooking.
