How Gordon Ramsay Shells a Lobster

You've Been Shelling Lobster All Wrong! Gordon Ramsay's Demo Will Set You Right

Gordon Ramsay schools Masterchef contestants on how to poach and shell a lobster in this stunning demo. One big takeaway that lobster cooks may not be doing is killing the lobster as "quickly and humanely as possible" before throwing it in the pot of boiling salted water for two minutes. His method looks easy and doable. As for the shelling, Gordon does not waste a single ounce of the lobster meat, including the little legs. There's lots of twisting and snapping involved, but no silly hammers! Gordon uses tools you likely already have stocked in your kitchen: a pair of kitchen shears, a chef's knife, and a wooden pastry roller. It's mesmerizing and definitely inspiring, so take a look at the stunning video.
