How about you? How much of a connoisseur are you? Do you eat the head/body of crabs and lobsters besides the legs, tail, and claws? I do. I love Dungeness and Spiny lobster and will eat the head/body. Never tried Maine lobster. I saw/heard on Andrew Zimmern's show that eating the tamale of Maine Lobster is not advised anymore. How come? Is this true? When I steam/boil my shellfish I turn them upside down in the cooking pot. This way the juices remain in the shell and doesn't leak out and make the shellfish dry. Hope I didn't gross anybody out.
