Gordon Ramsay proves that there’s more to lobsters than the tail. He shows you in this really incredible video.

Filmed from the US version of Masterchef, the video shows Ramsay training a group of candidates in the dark art of extracting every ounce of meat from the lobster’s shell, including the succulent legs, knuckles and head. Every bits that most people bin.

Watch the video above for his full guide, which tells you how to kill your lobster safely and humanely, the cooking process and, of course, the butchery.

We would suggest a few practice lobsters before you unleash your skills on your next date, though.
